Sarah Bester

Sarah Bester (CNP) is a Family Nutritionist and Picky Eating Coach who helps busy moms to end the cycle of picky eating and take-out dinners, so their families can learn to LOVE mealtime again.

As a certified nutritionist, with an expertise in feeding and healthy habit development, Sarah knows the importance of raising healthy eaters.  As a mom “in the trenches” with two young kids, she also knows first hand how challenging it can be to actually get a meal on the table (and the frustration that follows when kids refuse to eat it!)  Through easy to follow steps, and simple strategies, she provides moms with the tools to quickly and easily feed their families.  Her mission is to prove to parents that their kids can learn to love a wide variety of food (yep, even veggies!) and that mealtime can be fun, not a battle. 

Through her interactive workshops, supportive one-on-one coaching programs and online group “Picky Eater Reboot” program, Sarah is inspiring healthy habits and happy, drama-less mealtimes for families everywhere.

Jesse Lane Lee

Jesse Lane Lee, BSc, CNP, is a cheerful Holistic Nutritionist, cookbook author and cooking class instructor. She is the founder of JesseLaneWellness.com, a web-based holistic nutrition practice and holistic recipe resource. Jesse Lane believes that healthy eating can be easy, fun and most of all delicious! She struggled with Irritable Bowel Syndrome and food allergies on and off for most of her life. During this time, she discovered that when our tummies are upset, soup is the perfect solution. Its warm temperature allows it to easily move through the digestive system and it contains lots of fiber which eases digestive upset.

Jeffron de Savoye

Jeffron de Savoye, CNP, is a Certified Holistic Nutritionist. She graduated First Class Honours and Valedictorian from The Institute of Holistic Nutrition in Toronto, Canada. She is founder and owner of Evergreen Healthy Living. Nothing makes Jeffron happier than helping people feel energized, healthy and happy.

Growing up in the 70’s, a holistic approach to health was never discussed. However, upon diagnosis of breast cancer in 2006, the first thing Jeffron did was make an appointment with a naturopathic doctor. It was at this point that she discovered the powerful preventative and healing properties of whole foods. Today, Jeffron shows her clients that what we eat, what we think, what we put on our skin and the environmental influences around us, are all contributing factors in overall health. Jeffron coaches each client to BE healthy and FEEL healthy from the inside out.

Jeffron gets super excited about visiting farmer’s markets, flow yoga, restorative yoga, book club with girlfriends, spending time with her kids, and dancing with her husband. As an avid food lover, she is passionate about sharing healthy recipes with friends, family and clients.

Liz Murray

Chef Liz has marvelled at exquisite ingredients since she was a young kid! From experiencing the juicy sweetness of a sun ripened home grown heirloom tomato, to the aroma and depth of flavour of toasted sesame seeds, she is eternally enamoured and amazed by what fresh whole foods have to offer. She strongly believes that seeking out fresh, organic, and as local as possible ingredients, not only brings you nutritionally superior foods that the body requires to function well, but also deeply satiates and quenches the hunger for real food. In a perfect world, she would wish that people acknowledged this essential kind of eating for what it is: nourishing, health supportive, preventative and healing medicine.

About the Chef
