Vegan Sports Dietitian


The Ideal Nutrition team provides services for a wide range of people with a variety of goals, needs, and food preferences. But with the rise in plant-based eating, we also have service designed especially for this with a specialist sports dietitian that practices in the area of vegetarian & vegan nutrition.


No matter where you fall on the plant-based spectrum, our plant based sports dietitian & nutritionist, Leah Higl can help you navigate the complexities of being plant-based and having performance and/or body composition goals. 

Leah has worked with 100s of plant-based athletes from powerlifters to professional boxers and over this time has developed an extensive skill set in the field. As a vegan athlete herself, she understands the challenges that can arise in balancing a plant-based diet and athletic goals and is eager to share her knowledge with other people in the same position.
