Two busy professionals focused on helping other busy professionals take the stress out of healthy eating.
Registered Dietitians, Misuzu and Raman, bring over 24 years of combined education and experience in food and nutrition. They love real food, and would reach for a kale salad as quick as an ice cream cone. Their down to earth and relatable style make learning about healthy eating easy, enjoyable and exciting.
Misuzu Noguchi, BSc, RD
Misuzu completed her Bachelor of Science degree in Food, Nutrition, and Health with a Major in Dietetics from the University of British Columbia in 2010. For the past 5 years, she has been the clinical dietitian for the Oncology ward at a large acute care hospital where she works closely with patients helping to optimize their nutrition status during active cancer treatments. As a UBC clinical instructor, she also enjoys working alongside dietetic students with the main mission of empowering them to become confident and compassionate future dietitians. She is a firm believer that whole foods, sleep, sweat, and strong relationships are the cornerstones of a healthy life. Misuzu is passionate about promoting the power of food in relation to health while never, ever, sacrificing the enjoyment of eating. That’s right, that sticky toffee pudding or glass (or two) of wine can absolutely fit.
Raman Khatar, MPH, BSc, RD
Raman completed her Bachelor of Science degree and dietetic internship at the University of Manitoba in 2009, and went on to earn her Master of Public Health degree from the University of British Columbia in 2013. Her work experience varies from clinical dietetics, to supervising international nutrition projects with the United Nations. Currently, Raman works in marketing & brand management in the grocery retail industry. Raman is a firm believer in the 80/20 rule and all about real, wholesome, delicious food, while always making room for indulgences. She sees what we eat as so much more than just fuel for your body. As a natural leader and coach, Raman teaches others to see food through the lens of social interactions and cultural traditions, helping to build a healthy relationship with food. Raman is a through-and-through West Coaster, and a day doesn’t go by where she isn’t grateful to be living in the beautiful city of Vancouver.
