Hi! I’m Jessica Mitton, lover of good nutritious food, Culinary Nutrition Expert, award-winning Holistic Nutritional Consultant, adventure seeker, and some may call me the holistic nutrition cookie monster (I love a good cookie, but I don’t sacrifice health or taste!)
Holistic nutrition is a huge part of my life these days, but that wasn’t always the case. After years of unhealthy eating and poor lifestyle habits, getting sick guided me towards a new life. I became accountable for my health and started making better choices so I could thrive and be my best! I believe in a holistic approach, taking into consideration the body, mind and spirit, and I’m fascinated by the healing potential of natural, whole food and how it can be used to help individuals improve their overall health and quality of life.
I have a diploma in Natural Nutrition from the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition. I have also studied Culinary Nutrition from the Academy of Culinary Nutrition and Gluten-free Baking from the Gluten-Free Baking Academy. I’ve always had a passion for cooking and baking and once I started on my path towards health, I couldn’t wait to start creating in the kitchen and share my recipes with you.
Since graduating and working in the holistic nutrition industry, I wrote a cookbook called Some Good, published in 2018 through Breakwater Books. A modern cookbook utilizing traditional Newfoundland ingredients to create innovative new recipes with a healthy, wholefood twist. Some Good was shortlisted for a Taste Canada Award in the Health and Special Diet Cookbooks category in 2019.
I am currently working on my second cookbook to be released July 2020. Some Good: Sweet Treats will be filled with decadent chocolate delights, oat based goodies, muffins, cakes, squares, and cookies. These sweet confections, baked wonders, and delicious desserts are made in ways that are healthier and more nutritious.
Some Good Living is a space where I can share my recipes with you. You will also find wellness articles and can read about my healthy adventures. I hope you enjoy!
