Your virtual Dietitian

It all comes down to nutrition for me. A lot can be achieved with proper nutrition and knowledge on how it impacts our bodies in so many different ways. Together, we go on a journey to enhance your overall wellbeing using nutrition as the vehicle to achieve that.

What makes registered dietitians stand out from other nutrition professionals?

Dietitians and other nutrition practitioners are not always the same. The titles “Dietitian” and “Nutritionist” are protected in Canada. Registered professions are subject to specific requirements in terms of education, qualifications, professional development and day-to-day roles.

We don’t just follow the newest diet trends and make standard recommendations to our patients. Instead, we typically work with our clients in goal setting and creating a nutrition and follow up plan tailored to an individual’s goals and needs. Dietitians also often work with stakeholders within the industry to ensure you receive the best care possible.

Meet Cassandra

My name is Cassandra Burton and, (no surprise here) I’m a Dietitian-Nutritionist. I love helping people through what I do best. Helping you feel more savvy and confident about your health makes me a happy camper. I enjoy helping people like you learn how to plan meals for their household, fill their cupboards and fridge with health promoting foods, feel more comfortable in the kitchen and learn habits that will help them feel better, live longer and enjoy healthy food. I always say that food is my culture and I view food and cooking  as common and connecting factors among all of us, because we all need to eat. One of my favourite things about working with clients is learning their favourite dishes and flavours!

Whether you’re looking to learn more about healthy eating habits, to properly feed your body to facilitate recovery, change your body composition, eat for specific health conditions or learn to navigate a new dietary restriction or allergy – I am all in for you to succeed. Nutrition is a journey I embark on with every client.
