About vanessaperroneAs a registered dietitian brought up in an Italian household, my love for fresh, wholesome food was shaped long before my professional career. This blog: serving you tips, news and Italian-inspired recipes. The goal: to inspire you to eat well, love food and find your motive for better nutrition.

How did you spend your Earth Day? I attended a seminar on plant-based eating which unintentionally coincided with the Earth Day walk here in the city.

Green smoothies certainly aren’t new on the nutrition scene. In my mind they’ve been around forever, but they still represent unknown territory for many… A few weeks ago, I held a booth the at the lovely bridal boudoir affair, a fabulous bridal show here in Montreal, where I gave wellness tips to brides-to-be.
