About Me

I am Teresa Maiorano, a Registered Dietitian (RD) that loves to cook, plan, support and empower those around me.  My guiding philosophy is to connect your food decisions with your confidence to help you to a long-term healthy lifestyle. We’re here for a good time and hopefully a long time so Live and Love Nutrition is here to empower you in making and enjoying your healthy lifestyle choices. Fact-based information with recipes to match, meal planning guidelines, personalized nutrition and motivation, are all ways to get started. 

Have you recently been diagnosed with a condition and now are not sure what to do? Are you trying to conceive or are currently pregnant and trying to decide what to eat? Are you a busy Mom – ‘nuff said?  If this sounds familiar, you have come to the right place.

I started cooking with my Mom as early as I could remember and hosting my cousins and extended family on weekends always brought me joy. We cooked everything from homemade pasta to cherry cheesecake (my sister’s favourite!).  Today, I am head over heels in love with entertaining, cooking and talking all things nutrition.

My Dad is always asking about what he can eat to make his heart better, keep his energy up (he often bikes 50-100km) or help him get off his medications. I am always looking to newest research to provide support and guidance to reach your goals, whether that is weight loss, blood sugar control or infertility, I am here to help you. 

This blog will be made of beautiful and delicious healthy recipes, fact-based nutrition information and general mood building, confidence building and motivation! Let’s begin.
