About The Conscious Dietitian

Rachel Botany Bay, Port Renfrew

What if healthy eating and caring for the environment were not treated as two separate entities?


My name is Rachel Dickens and I love food. I am a Registered Dietitian with the College of Dietitians of British Columbia and currently work in Victoria, B.C. for Vancouver Island Health Authority. I have worked previously as an Accredited Practising Dietitian in Australia and I secretly love vegemite.

I created this blog to help grow and share my new found passion for nutrition that is good for our bodies, and our planet. I want to share my favourite seasonal recipes, information on sustainable seafood choices, and nutrition advice that can help lower our carbon footprint.

To become more conscious of the way we eat and live is the ultimate goal. Let’s start slow. One recipe at a time.
