Apply critical thinking to the vast amount of food information and misinformation so that you can confidently go forth and make informed decisions as it relates to your physical, mental, and spiritual well-being.
Cordelia McFadyen, a.k.a. your nutritional translator, is owner and Board-Certified Holistic Nutritionist at Inspired Living Nutrition Inc. After suffering for years from unknown food sensitivities and actively working her way back to strong health through proper nutrition, she was inspired and determined to take her education further so that she could help empower others back to great health. Cordelia believes there is more than enough food information “out there” for people to learn from however the key is not in the information available, but how to apply it to your unique nutritional needs. This is where she applies some of her favorite goal crushing techniques to help you learn the new healthy habits that will reveal the best you. Cordelia also loves to talk so you can find her spreading her love of all things delicious and nutritious online and at special events throughout Canada. A strong advocate for the holistic nutrition industry she currently serves as Dean for the School of Holistic Nutrition at Pacific Rim College, as a proud Board Member for the Holistic Nutrition Credentialing Board (HNCB) and as the Western Canadian representative for the Canadian Action for Nutrition (CAN) which is facilitated by the Canadian professional organization Canadian Association of Natural Nutrition Practitioners (CANNP).

In her free time, she can be found walking her awesome Chihuahua Juno and writing about herself in the third person.
This course introduces health-oriented students to the fundamentals of holistic nutrition and its importance as a trifecta of the mind, body, and spirit connection.
Have you ever felt disconnected from yourself and what’s happening inside of your body? Students begin this course by learning the essentials as it relates to the body systems involved in optimal health with special attention being placed on the gut microbiome, immunity, and hormone considerations. These lessons help equip you with the language and knowledge needed to better understand how unique your health truly is.
Expanding on a solid foundation, students continue to increase their holistic nutrition knowledge by learning how to identify what a macro- and micronutrient is, what going organic may mean, and just how important proper hydration really is.
Have you ever felt that health and nutrition were more than just the food you found on your plate? If you have then you’re going to love learning about the importance of how proper sleep hygiene, movement, and mindfulness are also key factors to consider when looking to support one’s own level of good health.
We couldn’t call this course complete without curating some practical discussion as it relates to one’s own kitchen, physical location, and those popular diets that seem to cycle in and out of popularity. To round it all out, we spend some tasty time together learning how to create a nutrient-dense plate that will nourish you on all levels. Gluten-free, dairy-free, and plant-based options are included. Bon Appetit!
