simple weight loss

Shirley Van Egmond, RHN, PTS


The road to health and happiness is not always easy!  But at least we can give you some road signs to navigate your journey.

As a mother, wife and business owner, I understand how busy you are! Focusing on a career and running a household are both time and energy consuming.  The feelings of overwhelm are not surprising at all! Especially when realizing it's  time to start looking after yourself. 

This is a big reason why I became a Registered Holistic Nutritionist.


When I hear that it's too hard to eat healthy.... I can't believe my ears! 

The only reason it's too hard is because we keep making it too complicated. There are so many easy options that you can create in your own home, using simple everyday ingredients. 

My mission is to help people better understand the basics of good food choices, and how to incorporate this into their everyday lives. 

I am willing to meet you where you are  with food right now. I will guide you by explaining basic fundamentals to help you put together simple meals for yourself and your loved ones. 

It doesn't have to taste terrible. It doesn't have to be boring....

but it does need to be simple

Check out my FREE recipe page and find dishes truly "FIT FOR YOUR FORK" to see just how easy it can be!

 My mission is to help people better understand food, and how it contributes to a healthy, strong body.  I believe healthy eating does not have to be so complicated!  With some basic knowledge, skills and quick tips, anyone can fuel their bodies with the right foods for them to live a healthy life.  

Working Together for a Healthier You


Gain control over your food, rather than letting your food control you.  Bring awareness to your eating practices, rather than eating on autopilot. Focus on HOW you eat, as well as WHAT you eat.  This begins with understanding that you have choices......choosing to consume the foods that truly make you feel good, learning the practice of a good eating routine, and learning the value food provides your body.

 QUICK-START TO GOOD EATING is exactly that! A quick action plan to get you moving in the right direction. Starting with the basics, you will be introduced to steps that will shape your knowledge and improve your health, one meal at a time.

What I Can Do For You

Weight A Minute!

The scale....the dreaded tool that so many use as a guide to being healthy. Reality is, it isn't all about the scale, but rather about feeling good within your body, being healthy and strong, as well as energetic and vibrant! You can exercise as much as you like, but you can't out train bad nutrition. How does someone make sense of all of this? It's really quite simple....real food, structure and diligence. I will teach you how to eat healthy and exercise so it's part of your lifestyle by creating an individualized plan to guide you to achieving your goals.  

Guts & Such

You are what you eat!   

But let's not forget that you are also what you digest, absorb and excrete. 

Yes, it's one wants to talk about the "output", but how our gut functions as a whole has a complete bearing on how healthy we look and feel. It only starts with what we put into our mouth, along with how it digests, how our body maximizes the nutrients, and how well we get rid of the "leftovers". One big long system with so many intrical parts. I am here to help you get that system working with you, not against you. 

Detoxing For Health

Detoxing helps clear toxins from your body, giving many systems a rest so they can restore and rebalance naturally. This does not need to be extreme, but rather include quality foods to keep your body functioning and fueled during this process. This is a great way to re-boot your body before introducing new eating habits, or just to give your body a break from so many of the processed and packaged foods our diets can be made up of. Your personal view of foods will likely  change as you grow through this process. You will begin to understand the connection between food, nutrition and how they directly affect your health. My goal is to set you up for success and shift the way you relate to food.

She has given me so much practical knowledge that really works for my lifestyle. Her nutrition advice has me on track, and feeling the best I have ever felt!"


"What Shirley has taught me about eating a healthy diet is that it  doesn’t have to be overly complicated. It’s about feeling good, having more energy, improving your health, and boosting your mood. She encourages eating food that is as close as possible to the way nature made it, as well as replacing processed food with whole foods as often as you can.  It isn't about perfection 100% of the time but everything in moderation."
