This blog began in 2009 when I went back to school to get my Masters in nutrition. It was created to act as a space for thoughts, observations, and other events and issues I encountered during my course of study.
One of my favorite things about working in nutrition is that it allows me to use both sides of my brain to make connections between the mind and body using diet as a link. When you’re well fed and feeling good, everything works better. Eating well doesn’t have to be complicated or stressful, and my goal is to help people prove it to themselves.
Though I know what it’s like to wish for more hours in a day, I believe in making time for yourself to actually sit down and enjoy a meal. I try to keep it as real as possible—no weird diet products, no impossible-to-find ingredients. I do not have a bread maker or a standing mixer. Maybe one day.
Though my training has been very clinical, I maintain a healthy respect for the as-yet-unproved— Keeping up on new developments is one of my top priorities. I currently divide my time between clinical work and counseling private clients.
I have also written for The Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics‘ Food and Nutrition Magazine and the Greater New York Dietetic Association, among other organizations. I have been a regular contributor at websites such as Organic Wine Journal and FYI Living. You can also find me on an iPad application called Trufflehead!
