Jennifer Broxterman is a Registered Dietitian & Sports Nutritionist, and is the founder and CEO of NutritionRx in London, Ontario. As an empowered female entrepreneur, her nutrition consulting company strives to promote healthy eating habits by adopting a “non-dieting” philosophy that helps people become more intuitive eaters. As a nutrition coach, she specializes in counselling clients on weight loss, sports nutrition, recovery from disordered eating, and food intolerances, always trying to promote whole food choices and long-term habits that support a positive relationship with food. On top of running NutritionRx as a dietitian, Jennifer also teaches at The University of Western Ontario as an instructor for the Department of Foods & Nutritional Sciences.
Jennifer has always been a fitness enthusiast, and is a former varsity athlete in rowing and ice hockey. She currently stays in shape through cross-training and lifting weights at CrossFit London, and has competed at national-level CrossFit competitions numerous times. Staying properly fueled through good food choices is a top priority, and Jennifer has been a huge fan of the nutritional profile and convenience factor of Kosuma bars since they came out (her favourite flavours are peanut butter and cranberry chocolate by the way). If you would like to get in touch to work with Jennifer, please email her at email@example.com, and visit www.nutritionrx.ca for more information about her nutrition packages and services.

“When I am training, I look for healthy snacks to promote my fitness and to allow me to excel during my high level workouts and long runs. From my years of experience I know nutrition is vital to my recovery and performance. I was introduced to Judy’s Kosuma bars at the beginning of this running season and have noticed improvements in my recovery and my running times. This season I have achieved personal best times in the 5km and 10km races. I eat a kosuma bar every day following my morning run and it keeps me going until lunch. I have always had difficulty finding the right fuel prior to a race or a hard workout, and I have discovered that the kosuma bar is the perfect meal/snack to eat 1-2 hours prior without having any stomach discomfort during the run. It provides a great amount of energy and it tastes so good! My favourite bars are the chocolate almond and the cranberry chocolate. I highly recommend the Kosuma bar as it is a great, natural, healthy snack for the motivated athlete, who is interested in health and performance.”

“As the co-owner of RunnersFeed.com and Race Roster I find myself in a rush more often than I would like. Thanks to Judy’s Kosuma Bars I am well fuelled following my morning session to attack the remainder of my day. You may even find me sneaking another Kosuma Bar following my afternoon session as I prepare dinner with my wife.”
