Blanche Keir, Registered Dietician Nutritionist
Nutrition & Health Coaching
Blanche Keir is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, Nutritional Counselor, and Culinary Chef. Her holistic approach to counseling is based on a belief that one’s body, mind and spirit critically impacts overall health. Nutrition does not need to be extreme in order to have a positive impact on one’s life and that small changes can make big differences. There is no one diet or solution for everyone; each individual’s nutrition plan and strategy is as unique as the person themselves. Blanche’s goal is to help people find the path that works best for them and empower them with the knowledge to make lifelong changes. She has worked extensively with eating disorders, weight management, disease management, and pre and post bariatric surgery. In addition to individual counseling, she provides wellness presentations on various topics including Healthy Cooking Demos, presentations on Eat for Energy, Healthy Eating on a Budget, Weight Loss Tips and Myths, and Mindfulness-Based Eating Strategies.
She is a graduate of Rutgers University School of Health Sciences with degrees in Nutrition Science and Psychology, and the Restaurant School at Walnut Hill College.
Her unique qualifications of both nutritional expert and culinary chef allow her to enable patients translate the complex science of nutrition into practical, healthy eating strategies for life. No matter where you are in life, there’s no place like health
