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.
