My inability to control my weight left me feeling quite stuck. Kristyn was able to help me get started again. Like many women, I know a great deal about food, calories and diets so her ability to hone in on my unique weight problems made me trust her judgement in all areas regarding food choices. She is also extremely supportive and puts emphasis on the importance of a well-rounded life not just food choices.
Thank you Kristyn, you have listened to me and supported me to make choices to determine my own plan. Rather than giving me a script that I would have to fit in to and eventually tire of or fail at. I think I have good habits to keep moving forward with and building on.
- Kristyn responded to my many goals by giving me the guidance and information I needed to inform my diet and nutrition choices. I learned how to balance my meals throughout the day by adding foods and the right mix of carb, protein and fats. I didn't experience as many cravings and tamed the binges. I started to feed my body when it was hungry. My body and energy feels more balanced and stable.I tried some of the recipes she gave me and I'm cooking now. Which is not something I would have thought I would ever do as I didn't like cooking at all. But now I crave these recipes and look forward to making them. I now believe that learning to cook is the only way to truly make the change to this being a lifestyle rather than a fad.
Kristyn is a joy to work with! She is passionate about the profession, always ready to learn, and is absolutely professional when working with clients and colleagues! I will recommend her to all AB clients!
Over the past couple of years, we've contracted Kristyn's services numerous times to present on behalf of our client, the BC Blueberry Council. She's hosted media events, presented a kids' cooking workshop, and done TV cooking segments for us. Kristyn has proven time and time again that she is a consumate professional: easy to deal with, well-prepared, reliable and detail-oriented, but also an engaging presenter and strong communicator. We would definitely recommend working with Kristyn!

I just wanted to let you know how much I LOVED the Gluten Free Baking class! I learned so much in that class and I can honestly say I have NEVER had gluten free food that tasted so good. All the tips and tricks were so fabulous that I have already been sharing my knowledge with my co-workers.
Kristyn is an amazing resource on all things food, nutrition and well-being. She's always ready to serve up satisfying solutions whether actual food or lifestyle strategies. She is the real deal as an example of healthy living. From working together on a national Board and in a MasterMind group, she is highly professional, always dependable and exceptionally organized. She works with a warm, collaborative style and always finds a way to bring out the best in people.
