I am a Registered Dietitian who regularly eats cookies. It’s good for you, trust me – I have the degree.
I also rock the upside down Nike headband.
Clearly, I’m awesome.
After many years of reading nutrition blogs and thinking “who would want to read MY blog?” I have finally decided that I want to contribute to this wonderful community of bloggers. So welcome! I hope you find something special and something interesting here!
You’ll quickly see that not every recipe would be considered ”healthy” but being healthy is all relative to your lifestyle and overall daily choices. I have no problem eating a full fat cinnamon roll since the majority of the time I make great food choice and I exercise on a daily basis. It’s all about balance!
I love to run. Well, on most days. Somedays I hate it. Just keeping it real. I love the challenge of running. I love how I feel afterwards. I love getting out into the fresh air. I love the excitement of races and challenging myself.
I love my little fella. May 12, 2012 changed my life when we welcomed our son Dylan Thomas into the world.
He is amazing and yes, kind of a big deal!
I love to cook. I think you’d know this already by looking at my site but it’s true! My mom always made homemade meals every night when we were growing up. I didn’t appreciate this as much until I moved to college and had to cook on my own. Now, I wish I could quit my job and create recipes in my kitchen all day.
A girl can dream, right?
I love to travel. I’ve been to Ireland, England, Mexico, Germany, Czech Republic, Italy, Costa Rica (my favorite country thus far). I have also been to almost every state thanks to road trips almost every summer when I was growing up. (Thanks Mom and Dad!!) If you don’t love to travel too, I’m not sure we’d get along. I just don’t understand why people wouldn’t want to see the world, emerse yourself in different cultures, see historical art, feel the beauty of the unknown – and not to mention – experience different foods!!
Other things I love include gardening my own veggies, photography, wine, hiking, polka dots and my Chicago Bears and White Sox!
I have a self-proclaimed geeky husband (Eddy) and we’ve been together for 8 years, married 4. I affectionately refer to him as “The Husband” or “Wholesome Husband” here on my blog. He’s a web designer and he is the most amazing person I’ve ever met. <3
I love my Siberian Husky – Keenan. He’s named after Maynard James Keenan. If you know who he is, we will get along just fine
Keenan brings such fun, joy and many laughs into our lives. Not to mention, he makes a great running buddy. He makes frequent guest appearance on the blog too – since he’s so damn cute.
