Motive Nutrition Team


Motive Nutrition is a Montreal-based wellness company, specializing in nutrition counseling, online wellness programs and healthy workshops and events.

The Motive Nutrition blog provides recipes, cooking how-tos, nutrition knowledge, actionable wellness strategies and motivation to make you fall head over heels for health.

We want you to fall head over heels for healthy living because we know that loving your lifestyle is the ONLY way to real + lasting results.

The Approach

At Motive Nutrition, we are focused on creating a community of Lifestyle Lovers, through a three-tiered comprehensive wellness philosophy that takes into account the whole person:

1. Honour your motive

Honouring your motive is about keeping your motive in mind and keeping your thoughts and actions aligned with that motive. Having a strong connection to your motivation is an important part of successful lifestyle change.

2. Nourish your body

Lifestyle lovers nourish their body through a Real Good diet.

Real food is

  • Minimally processed
  • Made of single or few ingredients
  • Made without artificial sweeteners, preservatives, dyes or flavours

Good food is

  • Good to the palate: home cooked + flavourful
  • Good to the body: nutrient-dense + balanced
  • Good the the earth: organic, sustainable + minimally wasteful

3. Celebrate your health

Lifestyle lovers know not to wait on a scale or pair of skinny jeans to grant them permission to celebrate their body. Instead, they make it their daily ritual to celebrate their health through physical activity, healthful home cooking, family meals, positive mindset and introspective practices.
