Nutrition & Wellness Coaching

Sidney Shindle, Nutritionist (Holistic) and Wellness Coach

Sidney is a Certified Nutritional Practitioner, linguist, cook, baker and former national level synchronized swimming coach.

As a former coach and manager, Sidney is passionate about motivating others to reach their health and wellness goals. She believes that by providing them with the right knowledge and tools, clients are able to develop and sustain their own foundation of good health.

Through her work in professional kitchens as well as her love of travel, Sidney has a vast array of skills and knowledge about food, culinary techniques, spices and herbs. She believes that healthy food should never be boring and is happy to share her nutritious and tasty recipes with clients.
​​
She became a Certified Nutritional Practitioner and calls herself “Veritas Wellness” out of a desire to share her love for real food and a healthy, well balanced lifestyle with local communities and businesses. She was inspired by her experiences in other countries, where whole foods and natural remedies are still deeply rooted in tight-knit communities.

Sidney is an active member of the New Westminster community and believes that hands-on workshops and community events are an integral part of sharing her knowledge with others.

Her Philosophy

By definition Veritas means truth, which is an integral part of the holistic approach to health and wellness. The Veritas Method is based on providing truthful and tangible information to clients through quality service, honesty and integrity. We aim to inspire our clients and all those we keep contact with to live openly and honestly, especially when it comes to their diet and lifestyle. Eating well and creating healthy lifestyle habits can be easily accomplished through smart goal setting, community support and self-understanding, all of which require Veritas.

Nutritional Consulting

Whether your intention is to cook for yourself, work through unaddressed dietary issues, lose weight or simply live with health, wellness and intention, Veritas Wellness is a great place to start. Working with a nutritionist is an excellent way to help you feel your best, as your health and wellness plan will be tailored to your needs, no matter where you are on your journey to vitality.

We focus on an individualized and well-rounded approach to wellness, addressing nutrition status, habits and lifestyle. Bio-individuality is a key component of the Veritas Method – we understand that every body is different.

To provide a truly holistic approach, I currently work with with like-minded healthcare providers such as registered massage therapists, a naturopath, an acupuncturists and 2 chiropractors.
