When you think “meal prep” does something specific come to mind? The truth is meal prep just means preparing food ahead of time. There are no rules about what that needs to look like! You don’t have to: Prep a week’s worth of food at once Use fancy matching containers Measure your food Stick to a calorie limit Adhere to a specific diet Make complicated recipes Spend half of your weekend in the kitchen So erase whatever diet-culture-driven vision of meal prep you have because I want you to create your own personalized vision of meal prepping that has nothing to do with dieting and everything ..read more

As I sat down to write out my thoughts and reflections on the past year as a dietitian business owner, I noticed one core theme: nurturing! I’ve been focusing a lot on nurturing my business, my clients, my employees, myself and my family.  I re-read my post about my second full-time year in business and thought, “Wow, I did so much last year. I didn’t accomplish nearly as much this year.” And I paused. Because that kind of thinking does not align with my values or intentions as a business owner. And I did accomplish a lot, it was just different. The truth is I don’t agree with the goal o ..read more

You probably know that you don’t need to consume animal-based dairy to get enough calcium. But do you know how to meet your calcium needs as a vegan? The truth is, just because you can get enough calcium as a vegan doesn’t mean it’s effortless.  As a vegan registered dietitian, I feel that it’s super important to be honest and straightforward about vegan nutrition.  What I mean by that is, it’s unhelpful to tell people that they don’t need to think about nutrition as a vegan, or that they’ll automatically get enough nutrients just by eating plant foods or just by eating enough calor ..read more
