About me

Hi! I’m Tara. I live in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, all the way up in northern Canada!

Struggling with my own ongoing health problems was what inspired me to eat a more nutrient dense, whole foods diet and is what sparked my passion for helping others through diet and lifestyle modifications.

I have always loved cooking, but over the years I’ve gotten more and more into recipe development, food photography and sharing my recipes online.

On this website I share *healthified* comfort food recipes for a variety of different diet approaches. AND all of my recipes are 100% gluten and dairy free.

If you are looking for more, I also offer free 7 day meal plans, 1 month meal plans and cookbooks.

I hope I can inspire and help others out there who have had the same struggles as I have.

I also have a Diploma in Holistic Nutrition & Health Coaching from the Nutraphoria School of Holistic Nutrition, and am a Registered Health & Nutrition Counselor through The Health Coach Alliance.


I worked with Tara for the 3 month meal plan. The first few weeks were definitely a huge change for me as before I was eating and feeling like garbage. I would have given up if it wasn’t for Tara. She held me accountable but also knows that we are all human and have slip ups.

We worked together to find out what worked best for me and my lifestyle. By the middle of the program it definitely felt like it was my new way of eating and I was feeling great. The meal plans were very easy to follow along with the grocery lists.

I now feel confident in the kitchen to make a very tasty, healthy meal and I will continue to use the knowledge Tara taught me and provided me with to continue on with healthy eating.

Thank you so much Tara! You’ve changed my life for the better 🙂

Working with Tara to improve my diet and manage allergies has been both easy and encouraging. Tara's support comes from a genuine place of care and personal experience and is informed by extensive knowledge of nutrition. As someone who hates cooking and grocery shopping, her meal plans were awesome for me - the recipes and shopping lists made the changes to my diet simple and accessible.

We just finished our 15 day candida cleanse, which went really well. The recipes and meal plans were awesome, and made it so much easier. There were a bunch of keeper recipes too! Definitely makes it easier to stick to a plan!
