Holistic Nutrition in Spruce Grove
Good nutrition is the backbone of health and wellness. Our body is made up of what we eat, so it is important to have a nutrient rich diet. Often times people don’t realize how they feel has a direct correlation with their current diet. In addition to helping clients reach their weight and health goals, a proper diet can actually help minimize joint and muscle pain, decrease depression, and help balance nutritional deficiencies within the body.
Benefits Of Holistic Nutrition
As a holistic nutritionist, Hilary Petersen, CHN, understands that not one set diet will work for each individual. Holistic nutrition recognizes biochemical uniqueness, so each plan is custom tailored to each client based on their health, wellness, and weight goals. Holistic nutrition is not about calories in vs. calories out; whole foods recommendations will be made. My clients are always surprised at how much they will actually be eating!

Get To Know Hilary Petersen, CHN
“One of my main passions is cooking; a lot of my personal time is spent in the kitchen developing healthy/new recipes or baking (my husband has a sweet tooth!). Additional time away from work is spent with my husband and two dogs (Mowgli and Minnie Mouse) and working out at the gym. My husband and I both love to travel so we book as many trips as possible (especially to California and Hawaii) – we even had a fairy tale wedding in Disneyland with family and friends!
My husband and I both follow a whole foods diet receiving the majority of nutrients from foods as opposed to supplements. We are both very active and lift weights. In addition to whole foods, I supplement my diet with a high potency fish oil, a calcium/magnnesium blend, and monthly probiotic cycles. As my husband works in the trades and is exposed to more toxins he supplements his diet with a high quality multi-vitamin, antioxidants, and fish oil to help keep himself more protected from the toxins he is exposed to. Meal prep and batch prep has saved us tons of time and has made healthy eating a cinch – they especially help my husband when he is working away from home in camp situations or in hotels to ensure he is receiving enough healthy nutrients in less than optimal circumstances.”
