Welcome! Glad you stopped by.
I’m a foodie, exercise enthusiast, wanna-be nutrition writer, total clean freak and I have a serious sweet tooth. I’m also a Registered Dietitian.
In 2011, I started blogging at thefrozenpineapple.com about life, food, our move to New York and my journey back to school to become an RD. Now that I’m a Registered Dietitian, I decided to take the blog in a different direction; one focused on health and nutrition—hence, the new name.
My interest in nutrition started after college (Penn State, Journalism 2005) when I taught myself how to cook, with a little help from the Food Network, and got healthier by eating well. I spent four years as a Public Affairs Officer in the United States Air Force, but my interest in food and fitness only grew. After I got out of the military, I had no idea what I wanted to do with the rest of my life—and then it hit me: I wanted to be a food and nutrition writer!
After moving to my husband’s hometown of East Aurora, NY, I went back to school and graduated with my Nutrition and Dietetics degree from Buffalo State College in 2015. I’m currently a nutrition counselor at the Weigel Health Center on the Buffalo State College campus, and I teach fitness classes at the Southtowns YMCA. I write a nutrition column for our local paper, the East Aurora Advertiser, and I blog for the Buffalo News health page, Refresh.
This blog encompasses many aspects of my life in addition to food & nutrition, including the globetrotting trips my husband and I take, and our crazy home-improvement projects. For more about each category, click here.
Join me as I try new recipes, kick butt at the gym…and try to eat more kale than ice cream!
