Leonora Chao, RD
St. Paul's Hospital, Providence Health Care
Vancouver, British Columbia

Leonora joined our team in November 2009. She enjoys a healthy, active lifestyle and strives to find healthy, easy, tasty recipes to keep her body energized and healthy. She feels that there is no reason why her renal patients whether they are pre-dialysis, dialysis or transplant shouldn’t be able to enjoy the same. She recognizes the challenges that following any diet let alone a renal diet poses with limited time and energy so she looks for recipes that are not too elaborate and that are simple to prepare. And by substituting new ingredients and spices, she feels that there is always a way to
Spice it Up!
