A Day in the Life of a Home Care Dietitian

Lynsey MossopLynsey Mossop is a registered dietitian with a love for bringing people together with food. Originally from Nova Scotia, she now practices Home Care in Southeast Ontario. In this role she strives to help clients improve their health from their very own kitchen.

Expect the unexpected.  That is one of the many lessons I have learned as a home care dietitian. When I first started working in home care I had little clue for how vast and varied this job would be. I feel fortunate to work with such a broad demographic: from newborns to people 100 years of age, and everyone in between.    continue reading

My Freeze-Drying Adventures

I have been keenly interested in food preservation and making “ready-to-go-meals” for as long as I can remember. Both personally and professionally, I was a strong advocate for freezing meals, dehydrating and vacuum sealing. When I heard about home freeze-dryers that combine all three, I had to have one. The first step was convincing my family that I needed to purchase another kitchen appliance! I have been freeze drying for a few months, and it has been a steep learning curve, but a lot of fun. continue reading

My Reflection about McGill’s Master’s of Science Applied in Human Nutrition- Dietetics Credentialing

Janelle HatchAlaa received her BASc. in Nutrition & Food from Ryerson University in 2015. She went on to receive her master’s degree in Human Nutrition from McGill University in December 2017. As a newly licensed dietitian, Alaa is eager to share her experience as a graduate and dietetic student. In addition to her love of food and nutrition, Alaa enjoys fitness, travelling, and catching up on her latest TV series. Connect with Alaa on LinkedIn.

And more importantly, I knew that I wanted to learn more and delve deeper into the field of human nutrition. I guess that answers my question, right?   continue reading
