About Lianne

Lianne is a Registered Nutritionist, bestselling author, engaging speaker and nutrition expert featured weekly on Toronto’s NewsTalk1010 radio. She’s an approachable and sought after media contributor and go-to for nutrition quotes, interviews, ideas, tips and articles. She consults with clients both in person and online. She has also written countless articles on nutrition, online and in print.

Lianne is artful at making complicated and overwhelming situations like news releases of recent studies (often differing to last weeks study), fad diets or taking clients’ test results and helping implement them into your daily eating habits and life. There’s an overwhelming amount of pressure to eat a perfect diet for both parents and kids, and some think to be healthy, you need to eat kale and quinoa daily. Lianne understands firsthand the pressures of feeding yourself and family. And for the record, she doesn’t really like quinoa!

Also as a mom of two super healthy, gorgeous girls, she's inspired to make what she knows available to every family so they too, can make a healthier choice one mouthful at a time.

Lianne started Sprout Right after her first daughter was born in 2003 with the hopes of supporting parents more than she was as a new parent, to feed her daughter. She started her unique in-person Mommy Chef cooking classes in her basement, that helped thousands of family learn to cook meals from scratch.

Ultimately, Lianne is a Registered Nutritionist who understands that balancing food, family and life can often end in needing a glass of wine!

As Dr. B explained in Episode 10 of EAT THIS with Lianne, the effect of his hot toddy recipe is that it’s a vasodilator and that helps those aches and pains that you’re feeling if you’re sick.

The pain in your body, the soreness in your throat, achey back or legs, maybe even your knees is from inflammation. Inflammation happens because your immune system is doing what it knows how when its invaded by a virus, bacteria or is injured, it creates inflammation.

The Picky Eater

January 07, 2020

After years of working with very frustrated parents of varying degrees of picky eaters, I’ve been doing a deep dive into how to best help you. A group of parents shared their take on how their child is picky and it ranges in issues. The most common thing that I hear from parents is that they’re done with the struggle of fighting to get their kids something healthy and nutritious to eat – that they love! Some people still search recipe books (like my mine - Sprout Right Family Food), and now with the internet, they’re also spending hours searching online for different recipes to make their picky eaters try something a bit more nutritious than chicken fingers and French fries.

Hot Soup for Cold Weather

September 12, 2019

The first indicator of Fall has crept up on us here in Toronto; chillier weather. To satisfy those chills, one of my main go-to’s is a pot of steaming hot soup! It’s an added bonus that it is also easy to work into a busy weekday schedule. Soups can be as simple as just a few key ingredients, or as complex as the Davinci Code. It’s about what you’re in the mood for!
