Holistic nutrition is truly a lifestyle. There is no calorie counting, fad diets or pyramid schemes. It is simply learning to listen to your body, working with whole foods, and taking your health into your own hands. Holistic nutrition is about slowing down, tuning in, and listening closely. Everything you feed yourself, every thought you have, and every step you take will guide you in the right direction if you pay attention to your intuition. We have two in house Nutritionists at Meadowsweet with different backgrounds and a shared love for food. Get to know them and details about bookings below.

Sophia became passionate about nutrition and wellness after participating in a two week juice fasting retreat in 2005, which took her to a whole new level of health & vitality. She experienced peak energy and mental clarity. She noticed her food cravings disappear, her skin become clear and an increased sense of emotional wellbeing.
Sophia became fascinated by the healing powers of food and plants. Eager to learn more and share her knowledge, she went on to study Holistic Nutrition at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition in Vancouver from 2007 - 2008.
Sophia loves helping others to regain balance and reach an optimal state of vitality through the foods they eat. In her spare time she enjoys expanding her knowledge of herbs & homeopathy, wildcrafting, farming and creating healthy, delicious recipes from scratch.
To Book with Sophia:
Chelseas love for food and nutrition has led her to the extensive program at the Institute of Holistic Nutrition (IHN) in Vancouver B.C from 2011-2013. It was at IHN where she discovered her passion for herbal medicine and the plant world. In 2014, she furthered her education at the Pacific Rim College in Victoria B.C. where she completed the Community Herbalist certificate.
Working alongside food and plants to improve health has become a lifestyle. The difference this has made in her own life has shown her how much of an impact diet and lifestyle has on moods, sleep, stress levels and energy.
Her passion within this industry has really landed in the world of herbalism, fermentation and whole foods. She has spent the last 4 years teaching numerous workshops on these topics around the Kimberley & Cranbrook community.
Chelsea is now a Certified Nutritional Practitioner (CNP) and a Community Herbalist. Her passion for these topics shines through in different forms of education and experiences like workshops, consultations and blog posts.
Chelsea is currently taking a hiatus from private appointments as she focuses more on running the studio and other avenues of business.
