Yesterday I received the following in my email inbox:

Dear Graduate,

Congratulations on completing the RHN (Registered Holistic Nutritionist) program!

Finally confirmation that I didn’t bomb my exams and I’m officially “Registered” to practice nutrition! Although I already started practicing, it’s nice to finally get the confirmation of those letters behind your name.

This was an amazing program and I learned so much. I’m really proud of myself for pursuing this and sticking it out when it got complicated and time consuming.

To celebrate, I’m having a giveaway for Peggy Kotsopoulos’ new book, Must Have Been Something I Ate. Peggy is an RHN who attended the same school that I did, so she knows her stuff! Her book explores the food-mood connection (the link between what we eat and how we feel).

Peggy “spins salads into PMS cures, turns oatmeal into a sleep aid and makes squash into pasta.” Topics and tips include:

  • Speed up metabolism and slow down aging
  • Turn to food to get energy and lose weight
  • What to nosh on to squash many ailments
  • Have your cake and eat chocolate too

My favourite part of Peggy’s book is the food porn at the back. She has beautiful, drool-worthy pictures with recipes of stuff that makes me feel good just by looking at it.

She also has a great section on Food and Beauty. In the past, I’ve been asked what I put on my hair/skin/nails to make them look so strong/shiny/healthy. My answer is always: Nothing. Eating well makes you look good, and Peggy explains how.

  1. I would love to read this book because…. I graduated from CSNN two years ago & have finally started practicing recently as a RHN. I would love to see how other RHN’s have taken their designation & run with it or how they’ve made a career out of it in combination with further education.

  2. I want this book because it is my passion to eat for health – I am extremely pro-active with my family’s health and wellness as well as fitness. I’m a nutritionist at heart, :)
    And Peggy’s book looks awesome!

  3. I want to own this book because I have hypoglycemia, and had notice that what I eat affect to my health completely: my mood and physic self. So is important to me to search another alternatives to apply in my everyday life and be happy with the results.

  4. I want to win because I really suck at cooking and when you’ve recently changed your life style it’s sometimes hard to know what to make I think this would really help me

  5. I’m terrible at cooking and winning the book would allow me to cook more and my hubby to cook less. Also, would like to learn more on cooking healthier for our five kids.

  6. I am really looking for help in starting Holistic Nutrition! I LOVE your page and just liked you on facebook!!! I would love to win this book, because it looks amazing and so helpful, but if I don’t win, I will spend the money, because I can already tell I want to support you and this book!! Thanks!!
