Episode 198: How to be a savvy food shopper and cut through the health-washing hype, with Trish Krause, Nutritionist

In this new episode, Dr. Lisa chats all things health-washing with Trish Krause, certified holistic nutritionist (and former journalist, PR/food marketer for Big Food).

What Trish shares will shock you! Many “organizations” out there which try to help are actually funded by big companies such as: Coca-Cola, GMO companies (Monsanto) and the sugar industry, just to name a few. They pay health influencers, including registered dieticians, medical doctors and other healthcare professionals to promote their products and distort the truth.

This episode is a must-listen-to to help you navigate all the confusing health claims, social media posts/groups and “advice” out there to become a savvy shopper who buys what is actually nourishing to your body.

Trish Krause is the founder of Bite out of Life Wellness, a trusted source for evidence-informed health and lifestyle information and practical strategies for change. As a habit-based transformational mentor and coach with a specialty in nutrition, hormone health, and insomnia relief, she enables busy professionals, particularly women in the prime of life, to overcome the overwhelm and progress toward a life of calm and courage by recognizing and reclaiming their wild and making their own health and lives a priority, one step at a time. Trish is a certified holistic nutritionist and firmly believes food forms the foundation of health. She is also a certified yoga teacher and encourages the inclusion of a variety of yogic principles and practices to support the brain and the body and enhance healthy habits.

Trish lives in Kingston, ON with her partner and their two retired racing greyhounds. A late-in-life runner, yogi, piano student, author and community creator, she believes in the power of reinvention at any age or stage of life and tries to be guided by the poet Mary Oliver’s beautiful question “What is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”. Trish educates and coaches individually and through her group health program The Wild Collective. She works locally and virtually, serving clients across Canada. She can be reached at trish@biteoutoflife.ca.
