What technology do I need to participate?

All you need is access to a computer, laptop, iPad, or other device that has internet (wifi) access.

How long will I have to complete the Vegan Nutrition-Made-Easy eCourse?

Access to this eCourse begins January 21, 2017 and is guaranteed until August 31, 2017. Most of the resources can be saved to your personal files to keep forever!

Are there quizzes or exams?

There are no scary exams! 😀

Real-Life Vegan Nutrition-Made-Easy is a self-study eCourse with recommended (optional) quizzes and Q&A’s to help reinforce learning, however it is always your choice whether or not you’d like to participate! If you enroll for the support option, Victoria will respnd to your answers so you know you’re on the right track!

I have Celiac disease or gluten-intolerance, or allergies. Is this eCourse accomodating?

Victoria herself has celiac disease, and counsels clients on celiac disease, gluten intolerance, food sensitivities and allergies. So she is well aware of the challenges and yes, this eCourse is accommodating!

I own the Real-Life Vegan book. What will I gain by doing the eCourse?

The Real-Life Vegan eCourse provides another element and level of learning and integration you may not get from reading. Mastering new skills and understanding is often achieved best in an interactive way. The eCourse videos, quizzes, and extra learning helps to animate the material in the book making it come alive!

I don't have a print copy of Real-Life Vegan, can I get one?

Presently, the only format for Real-Life Vegan is the (PDF) eBook, which you will receive as part of the eCourse!

How does the eMail support work? What if I have questions for Victoria?

If you have one or two quick questions, you are always welcome to contact Victoria, however by signing up for the eMail support, you have regular access to the Q&A’s in every module.

When you answer the questions at the end of each module, Victoria can assess what you’re understanding is, or get further clarification on something you might be struggling with, and give you the appropriate support.

By answering the module questions and doing the quizzes you’ll find you have a better understanding of nutrition topics you might previously have been confused by, or been unclear on.

How does the Facebook forum work? Who can see it?

Real-Life Vegan Nutrition-Made-Easy will provide you with a very good foundation. However, it can be helpful to converse with others, sharing experiences, questions, and recipes, so an (optional) private Facebook forum has been set up for the support. You’ll be provided a link for the group.

What if I need more support than via email with the virtual classroom and Facebook group?

You are always welcome to contact Victoria about other program options, including private 1:1 nutrition counseling.

The Story of “How Auntie Rhubarb Got Her Name”

Most people bring flowers to the graveside at a funeral.

When my Great Aunt left us a few years back, my 30 year old daughter adorned her graveside with a bouquet of rhubarb! This is the story of how Auntie Rhubarb got her name.

Sunshine and love filled my Great Aunt’s vibrant back yard on that warm sunny day back

When Vegan is Unhealthy!

Some people don’t believe a vegan intake is healthy.

As a nutritionist who’s eaten vegan for over 20 years (and written a book called Real-Life Vegan) I’m definitely here to say that we have solid scientific and anecdotal evidence that it absolutely can be.

But it also – absolutely can not be.

When Gluten-free is Unhealthy!

The grocery aisles are brimming with gluten-free packages of everything from crackers and cookies to cereal, bread, and frozen foods.

This might seem like good news for more than 1% of the Canadian population who deal with celiac disease, and the other tens of thousands who suffer from (non-celiac) gluten intolerance, however they could be doing more harm than good to their health, without even realizing it.

Fruit Crisp Crumble {oil-free, vegan + gluten-free}

Seasonal fruit or frozen, this easy crisp is a go-to for a delicious breakfast or dessert after a veggie bean soup or other light meal. If you’re using a tart fruit like rhubarb, consider pairing it with a sweeter fruit like mango or even dates or other dried fruit. No need for oil – there is plenty of natural fat in the nut or seed butter.

{3 Ingredient} GF Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Crunch

A chocolate and peanut butter combo craving led me to using an old recipe of my mom's, veganizing...
