Motive Nutrition Services and Practice

Our practice

Motive Nutrition offers counselling virtually or in-person. Virtual coaching makes it easy and convenient to connect and stay on track and has become a favourite for many of our clients. Alternately, we’d love to meet you in person at our Westmount or Rosemont locations.

When you work with an MN dietitian, you will learn what to eat but also how to eat. Expect support via worksheets, tools as well as access to your dietitian via email in between sessions when needed.

  • Ever tried oat mylk? 
Or as my daughter calls it, « oatmeal milk » ☺️ The slightly sweet flavour and creamy consistency makes oat milk a delicious option for dairy-free lattes and recipes alike, from muffins to pancakes. -
Unlike most mylks, oat milk provides a healthy dose of gut-friendly fiber. 💃🏻 Note though, that any homemade mylk will not provide calcium or vitamin D as fortified commercial versions do, so make sure you’re meeting your needs elsewhere.
-
Oat milk is simple to make yourself and way cheaper than homemade nut milk. -
All you need is a 4:1 ratio of water to oats. - 4 cups filtered water
- 1 cup rolled oats
- Optional add-ins: Vanilla, cinnamon, dates for sweetness

How-to:
Place the oats in water in a bowl to soak for two hours or overnight. Drain and rinse well.
Transfer oats to a power blender with 4 cups water and blend on high for 1 minute until perfectly smooth. Add a dash of vanilla extract or cinnamon. Using a fine-mesh cheese cloth, strain the milk into a glass jar. 
Fasten with a lid and store in the fridge. 
Keeps up to 3 days. 
The oat pulp can be used for energy bites, in muffins or in cookies 🍪

  • Sheet pan fajita chicken 🌶 
Perfect for today’s meal prep session! (Save for recipe below) There are two ways to serve this fajita-style chicken: 👆🏻The classic tortilla: Serve in a tortilla wrap (I love Ezekiel or Sprouted Power tortillas) along with your favourite fajita toppings. ✌🏼The fajita bowl: Layer the chicken mixture over brown rice with a dollop of guacamole, your favourite salsa and a dollop of plain greek yogurt. Perfect for lunches or a quick weeknight dinner.

Recipe:

1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, sliced into 1/2-inch strips
2 teaspoons Mexican chili powder
2 teaspoons paprika
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon kosher salt
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 onions, sliced
3 bell peppers, sliced

Instructions:

1) Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit and set a grill in the middle of the oven. Prepare a large baking tray and set aside.
2) In a large bowl, place the chicken strips along with the spices, the salt and olive oil.
3) Add the garlic cloves, sliced onion and sliced bell peppers and toss to combine ensuring everything is well coated.
4) Spread the mixture across the tray in a single layer.
5) Bake for 25-30 minutes, until the chicken is golden and cooked through, tossing once halfway through the cooking process for even browning. Serve or store in an airtight container up to 3 days.
