Hello! Thanks for stopping by at Sophie’s Healthy Kitchen… My name is Sophie Bertrand, I have a BSc degree in Psychology and I am a qualified nutritionist having recently completed an MSc in Nutrition and Eating Disorders. Here you can find simple recipes that are as delicious as they are nutritious! Although I am not vegan, a lot of my recipes are plant based, as I love to encourage as much plant-based foods in ones diet. This is not to say that I am against meat eaters, just that no matter what your food choices are, we should make an effort to incorporate more plants into our diet. I am mindful about using ingredients with nutritional value (most of time) and I think all food should be enjoyed in moderation. When I refer to ‘Sophie’s healthy kitchen’, I am referring to a healthy relationship with food and do not promote any kind of ‘fad’ or ‘detox’ diets that encourage restriction of foods and calories; I simply encourage healthy and well balanced eating. See my most recent blog posts here.

Eating for health is extremely important, and something I am incredibly passionate about. There are so many different aspects of our health that we need to be aware of: a healthy heart, healthy kidneys, healthy liver, strong bones, mental health…. The list goes on. Although we cannot always control our health, there are ways in which we can help maintain a healthy lifestyle and improve our wellbeing- and I have been educated to believe that we can do this through diet. Now, a ‘diet’ is not a term I use for weight loss. Magazines and media tell us that a diet is something someone goes on when trying to lose weight. However, it is actually a term used to describe the kinds of food one eats. We shouldn’t be ‘dieting’ to lose weight, we should be looking at our diet and asking ourselves: ‘Is my body getting all the essential nutrients it needs?’. When I eat, cook or bake, I am always aware of what that food contains, and what nutritional value its providing me with. I always opt for the healthier option when baking- not all cakes have to be unhealthy, or created with processed ingredients. I wanted to explore, and demonstrate that healthy eating isn’t boring! It shouldn’t be a task or a challenge; it should be a way of life. Please be aware that this is not a ‘weight-loss’ website.

  1. Hey Sophie I would love to hear how your niche works. I am currently pursuing my passion in Life and Health Coaching. I will be certified by the end of the year. I believe it’s good to form contacts in your field. My niche I believe with be body image and maybe Career and Life balance. My degree was Finance and Business and I was a Business Banker for 17 years before having my 3rd child almost a 1 1/2 ago. Body issues definitely reared their ugly head soon after having my son but doing this certification has truly been a healing process.
