“This program helped me to focus on the inner work and healing that was impacting me and contributing to my emotional eating…
I am so much more open and aware of the manifestations of stress and trauma in my body. This program really works at freeing the pain blocks kept inside. Michelle has immense insight into the psyche specifically around food and it’s uses of coping that you will learn so much about yourself. The somatic sessions were so peaceful and healing and I recommend them to anyone who needs some healing and love.”

Nurse Practitioner, Toronto, ON

I’m so grateful to have found Michelle and her program. Before learning about Michelle’s work, I was caught in a spiral of diets, books, programs and methods that failed to place value on the many aspects that contributed to my emotional eating.
Michelle’s program skillfully combines her knowledge of nutrition, meditation, somatic psychotherapy, trauma, body acceptance and self care to help teach me how to identify and meet my own needs emotionally, nutritionally and mentally.
Michelle’s program has a great deal of information but doesn’t overwhelm. It is presented with warmth, kindness and understanding, which instantly made me feel at ease from the very fist lesson.
Michelle’s gentle guidance and compassion helped me to reconnect with my body, process the emotions and judgements that I held onto for many years and to truly evolve in my relationship with food. I am feeling the nutritional benefits of food again, and have replaced using food to numb emotions with enjoying food for its vitality and vibrancy. I know that the skills and wisdom gained from Michelle’s program will continue to help me evolve on my journey of self care.

How did The Emotional Eating Evolution Program help change your relationship with food, your body, your emotions and your life? 
I let it go. All of the judgment and obsessiveness. The program helped me with body acceptance. It’s a daily effort, but I’m continually reminding myself of the need to live without harsh judgement and honor and love myself inside and out.
Food is no longer a bomb that creates good or bad feelings. My health isn’t attached to having a serving of potato chips. I am understanding what feels good in my body and realizing its ok to indulge in foods that may not bring any value other than enjoyment once in a while.
Most importantly, my health is a journey. Not a race, not stressful, not panicked. A journey of making diet choices 80% of the time that provide me with nutrients, energy and well being. It’s definitely not about perfection.
It’s about moving everyday, it’s about self-care, honouring my emotions and allowing them to flow. It’s about living my authentic life.
For anyone wanting to get off the emotional roller coaster of diet brain and emotional eating it’s a great program!

“This program has saved my life. The education/meditation approach was invaluable – after decades of struggling with body image, self-loathing, obsessive behaviour and feeling out of control- I am calm, accepting, have tools that are practical and am free from all-consuming thoughts of food that have kept me stuck for years.
Michelle has my deepest gratitude.

Vice President, Toronto, ON

“This program was transformational for me! 
Connecting the layers that have fed into my nutritional habits and emotional eating has paved the way for true growth.
I’m excited by the work I’ve done, new nutritional practices and alleviation of several symptoms I was feeling as a result of not feeding the body what it needed to be the miracle it is!  
Thank you Michelle for your guidance and expertise, it is truly appreciated!”

Chiropractor, Toronto, ON

Before I hired Michelle, I was so tired of my emotional/chocolate eating and binging that I needed to do something. Because of this emotional eating I was always gaining weight and yo-yo dieting (self-image issues!). I was ashamed that I was able to lose weight and then gain in back fast…a real cycle for years!
I found Michelle on Facebook and I decided to book a free consultation with her. Right away I had a good feeling; she pays so much attention to what we tell her and her voice is so soft and relaxed!
The first week I started with Michelle, I did what she told me to do and I saw a difference right away! The lemon water every morning, the probiotics, the food combination, the real hunger cues….wow! That “nourish your body” part is crucial. I felt so better/so more satisfied with my meals without eating more.
Then, the meditation started….this was hard for me to open up and dive deep in my emotions but I became so more aware now of my triggers and emotions that make me going into the chocolate! This is a huge WIN. I still have work to do but Michelle was so good with helping me in that area as well. She gave me tools.
My aha moment is probably during our last call when Michelle made me realize that I’m a pleaser who has not set her boundaries! Wow..took me that long to learn that!
Finally, this program changed me, and it is not an easy journey to stop eating chocolate to numb my emotions, but I have the tools now to help me. I feel great and more confident around food, and also in my body as it is. Thank you so much Michelle!

For the last two decades of my life, I have struggled with weight issues, emotional eating and low self-esteem. I was not happy with myself or my body. I tried different approaches to becoming healthier but nothing really stuck with me. 
I found out about Michelle through Instagram. I have been following her on Instagram for the last couple of years. I was always fascinated by her green smoothie recipes, holistic approach to nutrition and her lifestyle. I booked a mini complimentary appointment with her and after speaking to her, it just felt right to embark on a new journey.
When I was filling out the intake questionnaire prior to our first appointment, one of the questions was ‘What are you expecting from this nutrition program?’ The question itself was a big eye opener for me. I realized that I was not looking to just lose weight. I wanted a lasting change, I wanted a lifestyle change. I wanted to feel good about myself and my body. I wanted to feel confident when I walked down the street and not hide or cringe because I felt ashamed in my body.
I am so glad that I signed up with Michelle and completed her program. Michelle helped me connect to the part of myself which felt alone, neglected and hidden. The somatic meditations during our sessions helped me uncover a lot of blocks within myself which I was not able to see by myself. 
Her program also made me realize that progress is made in small steps, one day at a time and it is okay to not be perfect. You just have to keep marching forward.
I learned a lot of plant based nutrition. I feel a lot better now than I did before. I learned many things about myself which has helped me grow as a person. I ended up completing her program twice as I needed the support.
Michelle is a gentle soul who has patience, determination and a vast sea of knowledge to help you change your life around if you are willing to work on yourself.

Financial Services, Barrie, ON

I’m so glad that I decided to work with Michelle.  I originally just wanted to make some simple dietary changes to feel more energetic during the day but what I ended up getting by the end of the 12 week program was so much more than that.
My skin cleared up, I lost weight and I was able to create really healthy habits that will serve me for the rest of my life.
I used to hate cooking but now I’ve learned to make a few really simple and healthy meals on sunday nights so that I always have nutritious and tasty options available throughout the week.
Michelle also helped me so much with my emotional eating. 
She really helped me see what feelings were beneath my food cravings and supported me in facing those emotions and finding healthier ways to handle them.
While I was working with Michelle I was going through a difficult breakup and she was so supportive and encouraging.  Her energy is so warm and uplifting and I always felt better after a call with her.
I highly recommend working with Michelle!  Not only is she super knowledgeable and fun but she can help you through the tough emotions that prevent you from reaching your health goals.
Thank you Michelle for all of your help!! 🙂

Working with Michelle came at a great time for me. I was feeling very discouraged with my health concerns and was lacking the motivation to make any real strides to solve them.

Right after our first call I knew I wanted to work with Michelle. She is so easy to talk to and I felt so comfortable with her from the beginning.

Since working with Michelle I am much more in tune with myself and my body, and my relationship with food. Her guided meditations were invaluable to me and opened me up to feelings I had let go and ignored – allowing me to face them in a positive way.

I got so much more out of this 12-week program than I could’ve imagined and I’m super grateful that I got to work with her.

I would highly recommend her services if you’re looking to begin your self-care and self-love journey. I will be practicing what Michelle taught me for the rest of my life.

How did you feel before working with Michelle?

“Mostly depressed, very lost and anxious about everything, especially social interactions.

I suffered from low self-esteem, body-dysmorphia, binge eating, occasional laxative abuse, constant bloating, low energy and strength, constant knee pain at the end of a day, and also I experienced insomnia because of the anxieties, just to name a few things.

These things obviously affected my everyday condition; my mood, character and especially my interest in studies and life.

I haven’t been looking after myself for a while, was addicted to coffee, restricting my food intake and sometimes smoking. I had been quite successful and healthy on a plant-based diet for more than one and a half years; it started in 2014, and during this time, I was the healthiest, carefree and energized I’ve even been. But due to my past of body dysmorphia and anorexia in my teenage years, I unconsciously slipped back to bad habits (coffee, cigarettes, calorie restriction, fat phobia), without understanding their consequences and still believing that my diet and lifestyle are really good and healthy, as most of my food is plant-based.

Obviously it wasn’t, as I wasn’t really taking a good care of myself and was mostly focused on restrictions, which led to bingeing afterwards. This lifestyle with some good days, but mostly with constant feeling of misery and despair, affected me physically and mentally and in half a year resulted into a serious injury.

I broke my wrist really badly while snowboarding in January 2017 and was told by doctors to expect an operation.

It was a big wake-up call for me and I realized the importance of my health. My priorities switched to finding a good plant-based nutritionist and follow their guidance, as self-education stopped working for me and I couldn’t understand what to do with myself and who to listen to anymore.”

How did working with Michelle help change your relationship with food and your life?

“Michelle’s program and support helped me realize that I am not the only one who had experienced this, it is reversible and it is not the fault of a plant-based diet, of course, but rather poor knowledge of how to follow it to get best results. I also realized that even a small change in my diet can make a huge difference in my health and overall feeling.

Michelle explained me how to start listening to my body and understand what is true hunger. Also I realized the importance of water and greens in my everyday life and how to successfully combine foods to eliminate bloating, heaviness and a phantom feeling of fullness.

I stopped smoking, got rid of coffee and other caffeine based drinks, which gave me phantom feeling of energy and I thought were suppressing my hunger; but in reality reflected in headaches, insomnia, depression, binging and addiction to these drinks.

I learned how to listen to my body and take a good care of it by hydration, good food and proper food combining.

I healed my wrist completely and had no operation, and started doing yoga even earlier the time that the doctors said I would be able to.

Most importantly, I finally understood how to thrive on plant-based diet, eat abundantly without feeling guilty and sluggish and have lots of energy.”

How do you feel now?

“I feel very strong and energized every day! My mood is stable, my social anxiety is almost gone. I still have some bad days, but now I know how to deal with them and not allow those feeling to affect my mood or sleep. I am not depressed and lethargic any more, and I gained back my desire to be active and explore again. I can’t say that all my insecurities and problems are now gone, I carry them from my childhood and it is a long process of overcoming them on which I now have energy to work. But I definitely can say that I feel more connected to my body and confident that now I am on the right track.”

I worked with Michelle for 12 weeks and the experience was life-changing.
She was able to guide me through a variety of sustainable changes that I could make, given my busy work and family schedule.
Her knowledge, guidance and continued support gave me the confidence I needed to make healthy meals and make better nutritional choices.
This ultimately led to an increase in energy,  I was able to lose 10 pounds and feel much more confident in my own skin.

Therapist, Toronto, ON

“I’ve generally always been an active person that maintains a strict fitness routine about 5-6 times a week, so my energy levels have always been moderately high.

However, I’ve recently started to focus on my eating habits to better control my diet intake.

Around this time, I was fortunate enough to be introduced to Michelle’s three-day cleanse. I was excited to try this cleanse in order to reset my body and further explore ways to improve my diet.

Within the first day of the cleanse, I automatically felt lighter, but still had high energy levels – so much that I did an intense yoga class where I felt stronger and more flexible!

After the cleanse, I felt re-energized and found that I had lost some weight (a nice bonus!).

The main thing I learned from the cleanse was how to mindfully intake food – slowly chewing and swishing around smoothies/juices in the mouth rather than gulping them down as I used to. I also started incorporating some of my favorite smoothie/juicing recipes that I was introduced to during the cleanse into my daily eating routine. I think it’s a great idea to give the body a rest from solid foods every once in a while to reset it and detoxify it, so I will definitely be adding this cleanse routine to my life routine!

Thanks to Michelle for being so supportive and guiding me on this exploratory journey 🙂

“I’m thankful to have had the opportunity to get to know Michelle as she has had such a positive impact on my life. She has helped me understand the connection between mental and physical health by sharing her wealth of information and knowledge.

Michelle’s personalized strategies and tips have enabled me to reach a new level of physical health and fitness and helped me find clarity and peace in a stressful world. I have worked with many practitioners but I believe what makes Michelle the most effective is that she truly lives the lifestyle she promotes to others. With a strong scientific background, Michelle has a profound understanding of health and illness at a physiological level.

Her passion for healthy living, positive energy, and in-depth experiential knowledge makes her a leader and agent of change. I would recommend her in an instant to anyone who wants to make any health related changes in their life. Her positive and vibrant personality will make you feel comfortable discussing your concerns and support you in making sustainable change.”

I recently used Michelle’s holistic nutritional consulting services for the first time this year. Having known Michelle since high school, I was confident she would provide expertise in getting my health back on track. She was very thorough and detail oriented with the assessment and treatment plan that followed. She was always there to answer my questions I had about modifying the plan or supplements or even just random health inquiries.

I was very happy with the guidance I received and would recommend her services.

Aamna H.

Teacher + Massage Therapist

I have attended a ‘Beauty from the Inside Out’ seminar that was hosted by Michelle and I found it to be a very informative and helpful learning experience. Michelle taught about the different food combinations and how they can affect your digestion and metabolism. She also explained a lot about how good and bad foods can affect your appearance and well being, and we talked a lot about organics and the Dirty Dozen chemicals. I learned so much that I found myself taking notes so I could remember it all!

Since then, I’ve adopted a healthier skin care routine, and I like the results!

I love Michelle’s blog and although I’ve been lazy since I got pregnant, I have often referred to it when I am looking for ways to have good healthy food without compromising on flavour. Michelle has a wealth of information and it is always easy to get useful information and good advice from her. I hope more people can benefit from her knowledge!

What a delightful, informative, fun and delicious afternoon. Thank you Michelle for putting together such a wonderful class. I’ve attended two classes with LALL Nutrition and have put all that I learned to good use already. We learned to make dark chocolate biscotti at her healthy desserts class and they are now a favourite with my coworkers. Michelle is incredibly knowledgeable and a wonderful teacher.  I highly recommend this experience to anyone who is looking to learn about health and wellness.

I have been to a few workshops given by L.A.L.L. Nutrition and each time, I’ve let with tips and strategies that I can use right away to eat and live healthier. The workshops have a hands on component in which you put all that you have learned that day into practice in Michelle’s very own kitchen and you realize how easy it can be to make changes to your own lifestyle. I would recommend these workshops to anyone wanting to make healthy changes, big or small, to their daily life!
