About Hannah Magee, RD
Welcome! I’m happy that you’re here.
My name is Hannah Magee, and I’m a Registered Dietitian based in Canada. As a Registered Dietitian, I am eager to share evidence-based nutrition information and clear up the confusion about health and nutrition online. My goal is to help you foster positive relationships with food and discover habits that make you feel your best. I believe that healthy eating and taking care of you should be simple and enjoyable, and that food rules, restriction, and obsession are unnecessary.
As a dietitian, I work as a food and nutrition blogger, media and consulting dietitian, and podcast co-host. I am a regular on my Global News Morning segment called Healthier with Hannah where I share healthy eating ideas, nutrition tips and tricks, and my favourite food and kitchen products.
What Is a Dietitian?
Registered Dietitians (RDs) are the regulated healthcare professionals in food and nutrition. They are food and nutrition experts that are required to earn Bachelor’s and often Master’s-level degrees, complete accredited practical training, pass a National certification exam, and meet continuing education criteria in order to stay up to date in their field.
To learn more about what a dietitian is, what dietitians do, and how to become a dietitian, read the articles I wrote on Becoming a Registered Dietitian and The Difference Between a Dietitian and Nutritionist.

My Food & Nutrition Journey
I have loved cooking and baking from a young age. My parents are both great cooks, and I’ve learned a lot from them over the years. I now thank my mom for encouraging me to pack my own lunches in elementary school, and my dad for letting my friends and I host “dinner parties” for our parents in junior high.
In my late teens years, I gained an interest in reading food blogs and soon took an interest in creating recipes of my own. In university, my roommates encouraged me to start an Instagram page dedicated to my creations. During my Dietetic Internship, I realized that blogging and working as a dietitian in the media was a career path that I could pursue, and it soon became my dream, which eventually turned into a reality.
I’m grateful that I can now use my expertise in nutrition and food to bring you recipes that are healthy for the body and easy to prepare, and nutrition and wellness articles that are evidence-based and informative to read.
