Welcome to Foods and Thoughts,

I’m Rebecca, a Registered Dietitian based out of Ontario Canada. I am a self-proclaimed “Lazy RD” because while nutrition is a priority of mine, spending tonnes of time in the kitchen isn’t. 

I make appearances on radio, TV and social media platforms, to communicate evidenced-based nutrition information, and “Lazy RD” hacks to as many people as I can reach. 

My ultimate goal is to help people improve their health and halt the diet mentality.
