My name is Amy and I am the writer and nutritionist behind The Little Honey Bee. I am a former NCAA athlete, Twinkie eater and calorie counter. Now, I’m a Certified Holistic & Sports Nutritionist (C.H.N. & C.S.N.), CrossFit athlete, runner and real food advocate in Toronto, Canada.

Nutrition along with exercise, sleep and stress management are essential for our health and athletic performance. I keep things simple, emphasize being prepared, sensibly balancing choices and doing the best that you can in order to live your happiest and healthiest life. I believe in fueling our bodies with real, nutrient-dense food (none of that chemical filled stuff).

Coming from the girl who ate Lucky Charms for breakfast, pasta for lunch, pizza for dinner and Twinkies for dessert… trust me: you can do it. I never thought I’d actually want to eat brussels sprouts instead of Oreos, but I do – and have never felt better! You can get to know me and read more about my journey to health here.

I hope that I can help in your journey to become your best and healthiest self – get started by contacting me here.

Food Prep & Planning

Food Prep Collage2

Prepping food on the weekend plays a major part in my ability to eat healthy during the week. Like you, I’m busy. But I don’t let life, travel or excuses get in the way of maintaining a healthy and happy life. Keep things simple, be prepared and start where you can, when you can and do the best you can. I prep ingredients for the week and make a flexible menu. I also make a flexible workout plan so I can fit it into my schedule.

More often than not, we are on-the-go and don’t always have access to our fridge and pantry. I love to travel but I balance my food choices, prep food and plan ahead. Pack snacks and invest in some good Tupperware.
