As a dietitian nutritionist who loves food, I hope to show you how healthy eating can be really simple, delicious, and allow you to think of ways to incorporate more nutrient-dense foods into your diet.
I’ll be the first to say I’m not one to do these “what I ate in a day”-type of posts because I think it can be a breeding ground for comparison, and some can take it to the extreme, not using it purely as inspiration—which it is!
That’s the beauty of owning our uniqueness and individuality when it comes to health and wellness. It’s all about finding balance that works for you.
Just as I develop nutrition plans and programs for my clients around the world, I do the same for myself to help keep me on track with my goals—yes, even dietitians need accountability!
My nutrition plan changes depending on my training that season, what time of year it is, and what my goals are at that time of year. For example, as of this spring of 2016, I’m training for a half-marathon, so my diet looks a bit different from at other times of the year.
I always start my day with at least a quart of water with fresh lemon juice, if not more. I’m very active and sweat a lot during training, so staying hydrated is key.
Then I'll drink either my Coffee Elevated, turmeric milk latte or my matcha tea latte. I’ll cycle between weeks of no caffeine.
