About Christine Milmine, RDN
If you clicked on this page to find out more about me, hello new friend!
I can’t wait to help you feel empowered by a fully plant based diet.
As for me, I am a plant based Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) who has worked in clinical as well as community settings.
I am also wife to a Canadian, mom to the most intelligent plant powered girl (any other 1 year olds speaking in 3 sentence words?), runner, new yoga lover, not so new chocolate lover, and ethical vegan who was raised eating meat and loads of dairy.
My journey to veganism took 29 years.
Yep, you read that right! My story is a long one with many unexpected twists and turns. If you are curious about how I made the transition to the vegan diet part, check out the details here.
What is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist?
In the USA, a RDN is a recognized expert in nutrition.
To become a RDN, one must receive a bachelors degree, complete an accredited Dietetic Internship, and successfully pass the Registered Dietitian examination. RDN's must complete 75 continuing education units every 5 years to maintain their credentials.
