About


Hello and welcome to the Traveling Chamelian! First of all, Chamelian isn’t a typo, but a clever play on the “ian” that is a common ending to Armenian last names :)

My name is Lena Tachdjian and I am a Certified Nutritional Practitioner (C.N.P.), who graduated with Honours from the Institute of Holistic Nutrition in Toronto, Canada. I work with clients one on one, I have conducted nutritional cooking classes in Canada and Armenia, I was a weekly guest Nutritionist on Armenia TV (Bari Luys Hayer), I have worked on nutrition-based marketing for Green Lane NGO's online delivery service, I provide lectures and workshops, and write for various publications.

I was inspired to begin this nutrition and travel blog as a result of having to find a balance while being out of my nutritional comfort zone back home. I arrived in Armenia on August 2011 and came as a strict straight edge vegan making no compromises when it came to my ideals, to compromising on the most important aspects of nutrition while trying to adapt.

This blog will chronicle finding a balance, while traveling. It will include recipes, nutritional profiles on foods (local and beyond), articles, natural remedies for common ailments, substitution ideas, tips, and much more! It will also feature some travel stories – mostly because I enjoy writing about being in different and interesting environments, and also because I will include nutritional tips, such as snack ideas, for activities like hiking, running, and general traveling!
