Heart Healthy Nutrition – A Nutritionist Perspective

The link below will take you directly to a recording of the main presentation made by Marissa Laughlin RHN at our October 13th Healthy Hearts Peterborough Meeting. It runs about 30 minutes. The seminar provided a wealth of practical and simple moves you can make to improve the heart health supportive aspects of your diet.

Heart Healthy Nutrition


The link below will take you a form that you can complete. This is a simple but actionable tool for determining your current nutrition patterns and how they might evolve to improve heart healthy nutrition behaviour. Your community partner JoAnne’s Place has agreed to offer some services from their Holistic Nutritionist, Marissa Laughlin. Marissa will offer you some tips and comments once she has received your tracker. Choose a one week period and track how frequently you consume food in each category. As an example if you had beans on Monday Wednesday and Saturday, that would be three days and you would tick the 3 column. Alternatively you could tick each column as it occurs, so after Monday you would tick the 1 column and after Wednesday the 2 column and so on. If you have any questions you can e-mail Marissa at

Heart Healthy Nutrition Tracker

Once you have started your tracker and click submit you will get an e-mail showing you your entries so far. When you are ready to enter more, click on the edit response at the bottom of your more recent notification e-mail. Do not reenter using the link above as you can only start one form at a time!

Here is an explanation on how to complete your form.
