Hey there! I am Jenn from Grand Rapids, MI.
I started working in professional kitchens at the age of 14 (I promise I had a work permit from school). I continued to work in the food industry until I graduated from college. Before making a decision on a college major, I studied everything from Science to Politics to Fashion Design to Culinary Arts. I decided to combine my love for science and food to pursue a degree in Dietetics. I graduated with my degree in Dietetics from Michigan State University and after a year of internship became a Registered Dietitian.
I now work as a Clinical Dietitian that specializes in HIV, Neuromuscular Movement Disorders, and Psychiatric Medicine. I am also working on my Master’s degree in Human Nutrition. So in my very little free time, I am drinking craft beer with my husband, drinking bourbon while writing research papers, playing with my husky named Dexter (yes, after the serial killer TV show), attempting to stay physically active, and creating dishes that are healthy and full of flavor.
My goal for this blog is to provide you with easy healthy recipes, teach you some of the science behind the food you are eating, and hopefully show you that all foods can fit into your life (even pizza).
