 Hi friends! Long time, no chat.

Before I dive into today’s post, let me just apologize for my unintentionally intentional month-long hiatus (double apologies for the fact that this hiatus just so happened to coincide with National Nutrition Month… #dietitianfail). Life came at me real hard and real fast this past month and rather than add yet another stressor to the pile, I decided to take a step back and put the ol’ blog (err young blog..?) on the back burner.

But let me tell you, it feels good to be back. I have so much to tell you! Starting with a long overdue update on my ongoing digestive issues and my recent transition to the low FODMAP diet. But let’s save all that serious mumbo-jumbo for another day, shall we?

Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on how you want to look at it), the 891,527,523 hours I’ve spent studying nutrition – and its never-ending slew of health and wellness implications – just so happens to be enough to keep me from leading a life fueled entirely by ice cream and cookies.

January is a complicated month for those of us living in the northern hemisphere.

On the one hand, we want to put on our sweatpants, curl up by the fire, and hibernate under a blanket with a big bowl of mac and cheese. But then there’s those pesky New Years resolutions lingering in the back of your mind, reminding us of our intentions for a healthier year. So alas, we put away the comfort food and settle for a plate full of baked chicken and steamed broccoli instead (not that there’s anything wrong with that, of course – but it likely won’t satisfy those comfort food cravings) (more…)

I know what you’re thinking… “Turmeric?? Isn’t that like soo 2016?”

This trendy yellow spice may have been all the rage in 2016, but that doesn’t mean it deserves to be shunned to the back of the pantry any time soon (especially with the impressive nutritional profile that it boasts). If you happen to still be in the dark about this bright yellow spice, then today’s your lucky day – prepare for a crash course in Turmeric 101(more…)
