Emily

Hi! I’m Emily, the other half of the show and Janet’s second-youngest daughter. Growing up in a house with a strong female role model, I’ve been lucky to have a lot of guidance when it comes to healthy living. Now that I have a family of my own, I try to use these lessons and make the best choices for them, just as Mom did for us!

I try to put a personal spin on all these lessons. When it’s time to make food, I’m not much for baking, but I love going off recipe when cooking dinner. Mom taught me a lot, but I like to throw in my own tastes at mealtime! I’m definitely a foodie, and trying new things is a passion.

I also love to travel with my husband Jon! We have a lot of great memories from all over the world, but my favourite destination was Iceland - I loved the remoteness, the natural beauty, and the geothermal spots. We had some great food experiences in Iceland; the most memorable and unique experience happened in an isolated area. We sat down in this old cabin with a low roof and waited for all the fresh fish to come in - they made fish in at least 10 different ways where we could feast on it buffet style. I still think it’s one of the most delicious “earth to table” meals I’ve ever had!

Trying to find the right balance isn’t easy, but I try. Working as a Healthy Living Advisor for Goodness Me! means offering advice and helping customers become their healthiest selves, but it can be a challenge when you have two young children (soon to be three!). I’ve still been able to beat my own path while still holding true to how I was raised, and I can’t wait to share all I’ve learned with you on Honest to Goodness!
