About

DSC_0382

Hi! I’m Meg, a 22 year old Nutritionist living in London, Ontario with my boyfriend, Eddie, and our dog, Nikita.

I started A Dash of Meg as a way to journal my life when I moved two provinces (30 hours) away from my parents to go to university. Soon enough, blogging became more of a passion of mine rather than just a hobby to keep my parents updated on my life in London, which brings me to where I am today…

IMG_2757

In June 2013 I graduated from Brescia University College and the University of Western Ontario with a Bachelor of Science with Specialization in Food and Nutrition.

Instead of pursuing a career as a Registered Dietitian like I intended to when beginning university in 2009, I decided that I wasn’t done learning. So, I applied to the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition and was accepted into their full time Registered Holistic Nutritionist (RHN) program. I will be studying to become a Registered Holistic Nutritionist throughout September 2013 – June 2014 and am over the moon excited to expand my knowledge on natural nutrition and how our body, mind, and spirit are all connected to our physical health.

In addition to my passion for nutrition, I am also passionate about fitness and living a healthy lifestyle.

I grew up dancing and swimming, but it wasn’t until 2009 when I started going to a gym to lift weights. Soon the self conscious girl I used to be vanished with the self confidence I gained from lifting weights. I followed several bodybuilding programs such as Jamie Eason’s 12 Week LiveFit Trainer and even received personal training from a personal trainer at my local gym, but I didn’t find my true fitness love until I attended the Blend Retreat in May 2013 and was introduced to GPP Fitness.

After completing my very first GPP Fitness WOD I was hooked.

So hooked, in fact, that I attended the GPP Fitness Intensive Training in July 2013 and became a Certified GPP Fitness Coach.

So there you have it. I’m a lover of life, food, fitness, my family, God, DAVIDsTEALululemon, and travelling. For more random facts about me read these posts and feel free to contact me through any of the links provided below. I always love hearing from my readers :)

Love that I stumbled upon this page! I haven’t had a chance to read everything thus far, but I’m curious to hear your thoughts for achieving health “personally”, as in personal development or even spirituality. Stop by my page if you get a chance. Liked you on Facebook….can’t wait to read more!

How have I not come across your blog before? We are basically the same person, actually just got back from sushi, in love with working out, and an odd obsession for almond butter as well. I’m a Fanshawe student studying Fitness and Health Promotion, and going to Brescia for Nutrition hopefully after year two of my program. I came across your page from Monika of Fit Foodies. Healthy Life.
Can’t wait to read more of your posts:)
