Hello there! A bit about me and the reason behind my website…first of all, I love food. I love food so much that I decided to study nutrition and dedicate my entire life to food. I am a registered dietitian who currently works in a clinical setting. With that said, there is a lot more to me and a healthy lifestyle than just food. In my website, you will find my “ramblings” of all things encompassing a healthy lifestyle and community. We are what we eat…and so much more.
More about my background, I grew up as a chubby child which may make sense due to my love of food (re-read above paragraph if that isn’t evident to you by now). Being an overweight adolescent comes with a plethora of psychological issues dealing with peers and societal standards. As a young teen at the age of 15 I decided to commit to anything to lose weight. I adopted an all vegan diet and in the process developed some severe disordered eating habits. Sure, I lost weight and quite a bit of it quickly. Restrictive eating patterns set in and I had lost 50 pounds in less than a year; that was 31% of my body weight which is significant weight loss per nutrition assessment standards. As I began my journey in the field of nutrition and dietetics I tweaked my diet to what fits best for me…a more inclusive diet with the sustained joy of eating. Discovering the proper diet for myself revealed my lifelong goal of helping others find theirs.
