Sadia is a Canadian foodie and Dietetics Graduate currently living in The Netherlands. She now works as a YouTube content creator for her channel Pick Up Limes – an online community of over 1 million people.
She also regularly adds new plant-based recipes to her blog, along with uncomplicated and informative nutrition articles.
The Pick Up Limes food philosophy is to take things back to the basics. Sadia believes in eating as much whole-food, plant-based ingredients as is reasonable to each individual, using food as a way to nourish ourselves. She also believes that when it comes to diet, each person is unique and individual, and it’s important that we all honour where we are at.
Sadia has very kindly given her permission to us to share some of her content on a regular basis here on Happy Magazine and we are just delighted.
Disclaimer: Diet and cancer is an extremely complex area and one that you are best to discuss comprehensively with your medical team and your hospital’s dietician. They will take into account you, as an individual, and all your needs from your diet. This will be tailored to fit with your cancer treatment plan, your weight, your lifestyle and other factors. Depending where you are in your cancer journey, you may want/need to lose weight or you may want/need to put on weight. You may also need additional vitamins/supplements. All of this should be tailored for you by your medical team and your hospital’s dietician. While eating trends are always around us online and in the media, the current trend, whatever it is, may not suit you, as an individual, at this point in your life.
