A Day in the Life {Mouth} of a Registered Dietitian

I am sitting in the cafeteria at lunch and some coworkers call out and poke their heads over to the table, “What are you eating over there?”  “Oh look the dietitian is eating a chicken salad sandwich!” “Everything in moderation” I exclaim, ” this is some good stuff..” I am not sure if it was the mayonnaise laden chicken salad (with pecans and cranberries… so good!) or the two big slices of bread, but for some reason they were shocked...

Friday Finds: A few of my favorite things 1

Happy Friday! It has been a crazy spring so far and summer is not far around the corner! There are a lot of exciting changes coming along with my job that will hopefully leave me more time to enjoy my family as well as allow me more time to spend creating meaningful content for the blog. I want to use this series to highlight what I love in hopes that maybe you will find something that can be of use...

Chicken Salsa Tortilla with all the toppings

Easy Weeknight Chicken and Salsa Tortillas

I really wanted to call this dish enchiladas, but with no actual enchilada sauce, that just seemed like false advertising! Easy Weeknight Chicken and Salsa Tortillas is much less deceiving. No matter the name, these babies went from idea to plate in no time flat and were given a thumbs up by myself and the hubby.. which isn’t always an easy feat! I LOVE mexican style cuisine. taco meat is my go- to whether it be chicken, beef, or venison...

Movement Motivators

  I have never been an elite athlete.  I was a tennis player in high school (a pretty mediocre one at at that) and kept pretty active off season, running and often staying after school to do workouts with my friends. Fast Forward 10 years and I have done a lot of intermittent exercising during that decade but nothing structured and nothing consistent. The summer before I got married I joined an accountability group that my sister and her friends...

Banana Nut Eggy Oats

I tend to fall pretty hard into routines. For example: I discovered the balsamic vinegar and olive oil combo for a salad dressing. I have eaten this on  my salads every day at work for the past.. oh I don’t know.. 6 months?!? I know I am bound to get sick of it sooner or later, but until then- oil and vinegar it is! The same goes for my breakfast. I fall into these oatmeal spurts where every morning there...

Breakfast for the Morning Hustle 

I love the morning. There is something so relaxing about being up before the rest of the world.. which I feel like I have been doing a lot lately. For the past couple weeks: 415 am: alarm clock goes off—–snooze—- because come on.. I like early but 415… ? 425 am: up- eat a 1/4 a banana while putting on my tennis shoes and sipping some water. 445 am: a beachbody on demand workout– I have been loving the 21...

Baby Bites: Foods My Baby Ate at 7 Months Old

When I hear someone say “baby food” I think of rice cereal and canned purees. “Baby bites” on the other hand sounds more appropriate for what my little one is eating right now. Lots of new foods introduced over the past two months, purees as well as a finger foods. So far Harper has tried and done pretty well with: Purees Pears Peas Prunes Broccoli Apple Banana Blueberry Green beans Avocado Oatmeal We made a few mixes: apple broccoli puree,...
