I’ve been waiting for you!

Just kidding, that’s creepy.

But YOU have been waiting for good food, right?

Not just good food, REALLY good food.

Spicy Mushroom Meatballs

Food that’s not only knock-your-socks-off delicious, but also good to your body.

Your body is this incredible factory that churns out bone mass, blood, and new skin. What are you feeding it that helps it do these amazing things? Really good food, I hope!

Autumn Apple Fritter Bread

I won’t say that the recipes you find here are all 100% healthy. Some weigh in heavier on the delicious end of the spectrum and lighter on the healthy end. But for the most part I aim for the sweet spot where the two intersect.

One easy way to do that is to focus on plants.

Vegetable Filling

While you won’t find exclusively plant-based recipes here, many of them are plant-centered. Check out some of my personal favorites:

So who am I, and what entitles me to bring you delicious food?

I am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) with special interests in preventing childhood obesity and practicing mindful eating. I also dabble in food science from time to time. I’m a vegetarian, but not one of those vegetarians.

My husband Kevin is my better half; he is an incredible cook and helps A TON with the fooding at our house.

  1. What is your favorite smell?

Hmm… vanilla? Or onions cooking…
