Welcome to Lettuce Veg Out! I’m Nicole; I have a B.A.Sc in Applied Human Nutrition and will be completing a Master’s degree in nutrition over the next 2 years. My goal is to become a Registered Dietitian so that I can help people lead healthier lives through eating well and living an active, balanced lifestyle.
My nutrition philosophy has two central themes: Health starts with what you put into your body, and people should enjoy what they’re eating. Most people underestimate how good whole, plant-based foods can taste. There shouldn’t be a trade-off between healthy foods or delicious foods; I want to show you how to make veggies taste better than you could imagine!
With that in mind, I created this website to share delicious and easy plant-based recipes.
I’ve been cooking since I could stand on a stool and stir cookie dough, and I want to share this passion with as many people as I can. So many people are disconnected with what they eat; the best way to reconnect is to get into your kitchen and whip up some dinner!
When I’m not in the kitchen or at the grocery store, I love to go for outdoor walks or runs. I’m also (slightly) obsessed with elephants and have a growing collection of elephant-themed merchandise! I enjoy going thrift shopping, playing cards, and of course, I love food puns!
Check back every week for new recipes and inspiration to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Join me in my kitchen and ‘Lettuce Veg Out’ on some tasty dishes!
