Nutrition Coach

Meredith Lapp

BA(Hons), BSc, RD

meredith@simplyforlife.com

Meredith is an outgoing and approachable registered dietitian committed to making emerging nutrition research relevant, useful, and memorable. She is mom to a very energetic toddler, counsels full-time at Simply For Life, and takes a realistic approach to fitting food prep, fitness, and self-care into her clients’ busy lifestyles! She was recognized nationally as a Simply For Life Top Consultant in 2019. Meredith’s nutrition philosophy centres around a “back to basics” whole food approach: choosing the right foods, at the right times, in the right portions. Living with a severe peanut allergy herself, Meredith is familiar with the lifelong challenges that go along with food-related limitations, and she enjoys helping clients find sustainable solutions to similar restrictions. Meredith has particular interest in sports nutrition and strongly encourages women to incorporate weightlifting into their fitness regimens. Originally from Toronto, Meredith holds a BA(Hons) from the University of King’s College.

After varied early career experience in event planning, acting, children’s camps, and resume counselling, Meredith found her passion for fitness and nutrition while training for her first Bluenose 10k and half marathon (21km) races, and returned to school to pursue dietetic training (BSc, RD) at Mount Saint Vincent University. She completed her internship experience at the Canadian Diabetes Association, Camp Morton (a summer camp for teens with Type 1 diabetes), and two long-term care centres. Meredith’s favourite food is pickles! Her family’s favourite Simply For Life recipes include the Keto Shepherd’s Pie, Mila’s Banana Egg Pancakes, Chicken & Wild Rice Soup, Red Lentil Curry and – of course – the Easy as 1,2,3 Energy Bites.

Nutrition Coach

Hannah Guendert

Holistic Nutrition Advisor

hannah.guendert@simplyforlife.com

Hannah is an enthusiastic Holistic Nutrition Consultant, inspired through her own personal wellness journey. Driven to implement long-term, convenient and affordable lifestyle changes, Hannah integrates wellness through mind, body and soul connection.

Prior to finding her passion for holistic health, Hannah studied at Brock University. Although her time there was meaningful, her experience left her exhausted, ill and undernourished. Her self-care and changing diagnoses led her to find holistic modalities and care to help encourage health. After Hannah received her BA in Sociology, she was inspired to take her wellness to the next level.

Hannah studied at the Institute of Holistic Nutrition (IHN) in North York, where she not only learned how to treat the body as a whole, but to support health with nutrition. She graduated IHN with a new love for herbal medicine and continues to expand her knowledge around the power of plants. As a Holistic Nutrition Advisor, Hannah understands that everyone’s journey is unique and is motivated to inspire wellness with her clients, so they too can find balance.

When Hannah isn’t fueling her passion, you will find her drinking tea, outside foraging for wild herbs, hiking with her two pups or in the kitchen trying out new health treats to share with friends and family.
