Jamila Rene is a Registered Dietitian and founder of No Nonsense Nutritionist. She is a food product developer and also a personal trainer in training. She has a “no nonsense” approach to healthy living: “nutrition and wellness is not black and white, good or bad. It’s all about finding what’s right for YOU.” With a degree in Food Science, Jamila is an expert at “experimenting” in the kitchen and loves to “play” with food to create recipes that are better for you.
