About Shannon

Shannon Smith

is a Registered Dietitian who is a big proponent of supporting people’s nutrition needs with real food.


Although her approach to nutrition is rooted in science, she understands that turning nutritious foods into delicious meals is an art.

After graduating with honours from UBC’s Food, Nutrition and Health Program, Shannon worked in the natural grocery setting for a number of years before starting her own practice.

Part of her role as a dietitian in the grocery industry involved visiting local farmers and food producers. This work gave Shannon a deeper understanding of our complex food system and the know-how to help individual clients navigate their way through it all.


Shannon's favourite part of the grocery setting was leading grocery store tours and cooking classes, teaching groups and individuals to integrate simple cooking techniques to fit whole nourishing foods into their busy routines. 

Now, with a gentle, non-judgmental approach, Shannon works collaboratively with her clients to develop healthy lifelong habits and attain personal nutrition-related goals. 

Shannon’s specialties lie in assisting clients with digestive issues. She has completed low FODMAP diet training for Irritable Bowel Syndrome through Monash University, and is skilled at working with clients to identify and eliminate digestive irritants from their diets.
