I tried, guys. Really, I did.
I promised myself I would wait until the first day of fall to open my first can of pumpkin. I refused to be that girl. You know the one I’m talking about.. the one that is all “OMG #PSL” in like, August.
And yet, here we are. Three days away from the official start of fall and elbows deep in Chipotle Pumpkin Salsa. Soo close…

You just got home after a long day at work and your stomach is rumbling. Tired and hangry, you immediately head to the kitchen to start cooking dinner. But, just as you’re about to sit down and eat, you take a glance at the lonely chicken breast sitting on your plate and suddenly realize that you don’t have anything to eat with it. You dig through your freezer and come up with a bag of frostbitten veggies buried underneath a carton of ice cream you forgot that you bought a few weeks ago. When are these from? Who cares. You toss them into the microwave and continue to inhale your chicken breast. A few minutes later, you check back in on the veggies, only to find that they’ve magically transformed into a soggy pile of mush. You take one bite, toss the rest, and grab the carton of ice cream out of the freezer instead.

It’s the last day of August and little signs of fall are beginning to pop up all over the place. The nights are getting cooler, the morning commutes are getting longer, and the grocery store shelves are already fully stocked with pumpkin flavored goodies and Halloween candy displays.
But, just because summer is winding down does not mean it’s time to transition to heavy comfort foods just yet. There are still plenty more grilling days ahead of us (and plenty more ice cream trips to be made.. but that’s beside the point).
Lemon Dill Salmon Burgers are the perfect way to hold on to the light and fresh flavors of summer while transitioning into the hustle and bustle of back-to-school season. These salmon patties only require one bowl and can be cooked on the grill or the stove top for a quick weeknight meal. (more…)

Pair these tacos with fruit or serve with a simple side salad or grilled veggies for an easy and delicious meal that’s suitable for any time of the day.
When it comes to breakfast, are you team savory or team sweet?
Growing up, I always identified myself as a proud member of team sweet. And even to this day, most of my mornings begin with a smoothie bowl, yogurt with fruit and granola, or some form of toast with nut butter and fruit. But that’s not to say that I don’t crave a good, savory breakfast from time to time. It’s just that these “times” tend to fall after 12 PM.
Truth be told, I eat breakfast for dinner (or lunch) far more often than any grown woman probably “should”. But honestly, can you blame me? There are just SO many amazing breakfast options out there.. and not nearly enough breakfasts in the day.
The dietetic internship is one of the last steps in the journey to becoming a Registered Dietitian (RD). Make the most of this unique experience with these tips 15 tips for dietetic interns, as told by practicing dietitians from all over the country!
It’s hard to believe it’s already been 2 years since I moved to Ohio to begin my dietetic internship. I can still vividly remember walking into my first day of internship orientation, overwhelmed by ALL the feelings. Like most undergraduate dietetic students, I had spent the past 2+ years researching, visiting, and applying to internship programs (on top of the many years spent simultaneously studying, volunteering, and working), all so that I could eventually call myself a “dietetic intern” – and, more importantly, a “dietitian”. Finally, the time had come to put everything that I’ve learned and read in textbooks into practice.. and I couldn’t have been more excited – or more nervous.
For those of you who may not be very familiar with the field of dietetics, the dietetic internship is one of the last steps in the process of becoming a Registered Dietitian (RD). It is similar in nature to a physician’s residency program and must be completed in order for an individual to be eligible to sit for the registration exam. Each internship is unique in their own ways; however, all accredited internships consist of 1200+ hours of hands-on supervised practice in a variety of clinical, community, and food service settings.
Internship placements are granted through a (crazy and mysterious) computer-matching process. According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, there are currently just over 250 internships in the United States – a small number considering how much the field has grown over the past decade. As a result, the national match rate for dietetic internships is currently 49%, meaning that more than half of all dietetic students who apply to dietetic internships in any given year do not get matched. To call the process competitive would be an understatement.
But, you’ve done your homework. You’ve gotten an internship. So now what?? (more…)
