Introducing Homemaker Monday

When I was younger, people used to call me Martha Stuart because apparently I had promising homemaker skills. I was appalled at this, because I hated boys and didn’t want to simply be a stay-at-home servant  wife. Before you get ready to hate me, my views have changed. Drastically.

As I grew into my teen years, my family adapted the name to Rachel Ray, which was fine I suppose, but I still didn’t like all this labeling business. During this time I dreamed of opening my own bakery or becoming a dietitian. My future held a career, nothing homemakery.

Negotiating Grades

Negotiating Grades

After finishing college, it’s easy to forget how much grades meant. The stress I felt seems so needless now, and it was. I can remember trying to convince myself that getting a B on a test would not be the end of the world, but when I would receive my grade and find it had come dangerously close to a B, my tune would change and I would go into intense study mode.

How many of you have piles of mail stacked on the kitchen counter? Better question, how many of you feel stressed out or guilty when you glance at that stack?

I just recently received this month’s issue of Today’s Dietitian, which I’ve already told you I love. However, I haven’t finished last month’s issue. Or the one before that. And I won’t even tell you how many JANDs I have lying around.

Today’s Dietitian – One of my Favorite Resources for RDNS

Today’s Dietitian – One of my favorite Resources for RDNs



If there is one resource I wish I had during college, it is this magazine: Today’s Dietitian.

I had the Food and Nutrition Magazine and JAND coming in the mail, but the first wasn’t very meaty and the second was too dry. I read them now (as much as I can) but back then it just didn’t fit my student needs.
