Abby’s Nutrition Philosophy:
Eat real food, not diet junk. Learn how to cook, and do it often. Quality, not calories, is what matters. Eat more plants. Revel in the beauty of food. Choose food that you love, and listen to your body.

Educated at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia and Loyola University in Chicago, Abby has worked extensively both in nutrition management and in clinical nutrition.
