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 meet your plant powered goals without missing out on the nutrients you need to thrive.
As for me, I am a plant based Registered Dietitian (RDN) with over 5 years of experience in the field.
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 fully plant based took 29 years.
Yep, you read that right! My story is a long one with many unexpected twists and turns, so if you are curious about how I made the transition to a vegan diet, check out the details here
