about Jillian

Hi! I’m Jillian, the Registered Dietitian and food lover behind Prevention Pantry.  My background includes a strong foundation in nutritional science and a deep understanding of the relationship between food, body and mind. 

I combine evidenced based, medical nutrition therapy with mindful eating and traditional foods to help individuals of all ages increase their energy, balance hormones, improve digestion and live healthier and happier lives. I firmly believe in an “all food fits” approach to nutrition – one in which food rules and rigid diets do not exist. I am passionate about empowering others to discover what their bodies need through a personalized and holistic approach towards nutrition. 

Food is one of our most powerful tools in the prevention and management of disease. We also live in a culture where different diets and products are being marketed to us every day, along with conflicting nutrition messages that make deciding what to eat stressful and confusing. My goal in working together is to remove the stress and confusion around food, to translate the science of nutrition in a way that is easy to understand and applicable, and to support you in your personal nutrition and health journey.

I get it - making dietary and lifestyle changes can often feel overwhelming while managing a busy life. I am here to simplify this process by providing you with personalized nutrition support based on your needs. Together we will focus on making balanced and sustainable changes that fit into YOUR life.

One of my favorite hobbies is creating simple, wholesome and flavorful recipes that promote health and happiness. I hope that by providing reliable nutrition information, customized nutrition plans and support, and inspiring real-life recipes, I can empower others to make thoughtful decisions about how to fuel their bodies – and to enjoy every bite!
