About Me

Hi! Thanks for stopping by A Nutritionist Eats. You’ll find (mostly) healthy recipes, tips for healthy living and some general randomness from my life.

The One Minute Version:

I have a degree in Nutrition from the University of Minnesota.
I’m married. (To a red-head!)
We moved from Minneapolis to Los Angeles over two years ago.
I’m currently the Communications Manager at an anti-hunger nonprofit.
I love everything about food. (Cooking, eating, reading, watching, learning.)
I try to workout as much as I can. (See above.)

Life Timeline:


After 18 years in Wisconsin, I left for college at the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities and loved it so much I lived there long after college. Then, Richie and I got married and moved to Los Angeles two weeks later. Why Los Angeles? We wanted to get out of the Midwest and try sunny Souther California. I have a lot of family here too, which has made the transition so much easier.

Why I Blog:

In early 2009 I started toying around with the idea of starting a blog. I wanted to share recipes, nutrition and health tips and new exciting foods that I try with my friends and family. Now I’m an obsessed blogger. Looking back at old posts is hilarious as they are awful! I hope you can laugh at them too.

What I Do (JOB):

So what do I do? I’m not a practicing Nutritionist. I started my career in the natural food industry – Marketing and am currently the Communications Manager for an anti-hunger nonprofit called MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger. I really love Communications and Marketing. Who knows what I’ll be doing “when I grow up.”

My Favorites:

I’m obsessed with eating out. It is one of my favorite things to do. Since I don’t travel as much as I’d like to, I love living in a city like LA, where I can “explore” different cultures through their cuisine. I also love long and lazy weekends (I’m kind of a homebody), coffee (starbucks blonde roast, intellegentsia el gallo breakfast and dunkin donuts hazelnut), dreaming about owning a house and decorating it. Wine (usually Cabernet) is my drink of choice and I think that reading a good book that you can’t put down is one of life’s greatest gifts. I’m also obsessed with design and playing around in photoshop, illustrator and indesign. And babies, always squishy babies. Working out isn’t so bad either.

My (NOT SO) Favorites:

Being away from our friends and family in the Midwest is rough. My hair (it’s thin and fine) and the fact that I always want things (clothes! purses! makeup!). LA traffic (duh).

    I absolutely love your blog. I have suffered from eating disorders for years and only have become a stable weight. Went from 100kg to 35kg. Your blog, your “daily eats” posts help me so much!! I’ve been struggling with bulimia for years and seeing what you eat each day, how much fat, carbs and protein you consume has really changed my view on things. Thank you so much!
    P.s, I am getting my GED so I can get my dietetics degree :)
    P.p.s – You post the best. recipes. ever!!
