For over 2 decades, Patricia has been influential in helping Canadians eat healthier and achieve their well-being goals. An award winner for nutrition communications, she is known for her approachable style and genuine ability to make healthy eating make sense. Through her consulting company, patriciachuey.com, she has assisted thousands of individuals of all ages with weight loss, diabetes management, eating for sports performance and fitting healthy eating into a busy life. She has delivered over 2500 seminars and been interviewed and quoted in countless TV, newspaper and magazine articles. She has authored 5 books, 4 of which are cookbooks and contributed to several others. From the time she entered the University of Saskatchewan to study nutrition, and later pursue a masters’ degree in Physical Education, she knew her life’s work would be to help healthy people stay healthy and ultimately to create peace of mind around what should be a relatively simple, yet gets incredibly confusing subject – food. To further understand why people buy and eat what they do, she spent 8 years managing the nutrition affairs for a large supermarket chain. She discovered just how confusing food marketing messages are for consumers and how unnecessarily complicated a supermarket can be. She says the grocery environment was the perfect vantage point from which to watch the whole low carb trend unfold and ultimately crash. She is passionate about healthy living and believes that it can and should be very simple. She is a married mother of a preschooler and in her free time enjoys creating recipes, running and taking in the natural beauty of Canada.
