Hello, it’s me, Beth.
Once upon a time (aka high school), I thought I wanted to be an English teacher. I loved to read and write and, in the time before the internet, filled many, many journals full of stories and the usual teenage angst. I became interested in nutrition and health right around the time of college applications and switched my interest to nutrition & dietetics, leaving English and writing in the dust.
In college, I wrote lab reports and chart notes instead of essays and fiction, and as much as I enjoy my field, I have always felt the pull of writing.
And so, here I am. I’ve been a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN) for 12+ years and have worked in hospitals, clinics, long-term care, and communications. I plan to use this as an outlet to write on nutrition and healthy lifestyle topics and share some of my favorite recipes. Foods and recipes with lots of flavor and nutrients that are budget-friendly are my favorite, so you can expect to see a lot of those!
