I began this blog to help busy families get healthy meals on the table. I started to notice that my family, and the families around me, were trying so hard to balance kids, jobs, activities and life that the traditional family meal was being thrown out the window--with the trash from their fast food containers. As a mom of three, I knew how hard it was to meal plan, grocery shop and cook meals that everyone will eat (or at least try). When you have picky or problem eaters, food allergies, or developmental delays feeding a family can feel like you are climbing Mt. Everest. I also knew that there had to be an easier way and still keep good nutrition on point.
After many years of practice (and failures too), I want to share my knowledge with other families like yours. I want to show you what I've learned from feeding my own family and empower you to feed your family well too. It's not that hard, my friends, and bringing back the family meal back to your table will be a wonderful thing.
I have always loved nutrition. I became a Registered Dietitian in 2000. I have worked in various fields, including both the clinical and community settings. When my own family came along, I had to step-up my game. I have three girls, two of whom have had multiple food allergies including Eosinophilic Esophagitis, and autism. This gave me a whole new perspective on what feeding a family looks like. When I am not cooking and cleaning up spills in my kitchen, I love to read and drink lots and lots of coffee.
