GREEK FOOD

Hello and Happy Hump Day! As many of you may know, I traveled to Greece a few weeks ago with two of my girlfriends and had an AMAZING time. However, I have not gotten a chance to share about one of the best parts of the trip…the FOOD of course! Like any vacation or trip,…

Aldi Obsession

Ginger & Pepper walk into an Aldi… the rest is history ❤ Both of us spices have a long-standing relationship (aka: LOVE) with this grocer.  Why is Aldi amazing? Let me tell you…  Efficient: Aldi stocks their supplies in their original boxes so there is no time lost moving product to the shelf. In addition,…

What’s in my Lunchbox

This week, I wanted to give you a quick glimpse of “What’s in my lunchbox”. This is an overview of how food prep can be effortless and incorporating fruits and veggies can be simple. First, you need a lunch bag.  If it fits all the Tupperware it’s a keeper! Breakfast: Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding This…

Eggplant “Bacon”!? Trying New Recipes

How many of you take pictures of recipes from magazines or social media and never do anything with them? I am extremely guilty of this. Almost weekly I’ll see a recipe that looks interesting and snap a picture to try it later. Weeks go by and the picture gets lost in my album never to be seen again. So this week…

Some SWEET updates!

As many of you may know, I grew up in a rural area showing livestock, baling hay and working for the man (my dad). Part of living on a small farm was helping with everything that needed to be done, and now that I am older, it’s something I can really appreciate! Although, put lightly,…

Nutrition Philosophy

  When people find out that I’m a dietitian, they always ask me what I eat, what I don’t eat, and what I recommend they should eat. YIKES! My head wants to burst when I hear these questions because they are not quick-answers, but more of an explanation of my nutrition philosophy.  If you’ve been…

Saying “Yes”

Less than a year ago, I was talking with Kristen (aka: Pepper) and she mentioned a trip she was planning for the following year. The trip was to Havasu Falls with another RD friend, Becky. I did a quick google-image search and immediately said “YES!” …pretty much inviting myself. I soon found out it was a backpacking…

RDN Day is always celebrated on the second Wednesday of March’s National Nutrition Month. It just so happens that this year we also share the holiday with National Pie Day (3.14…)! How food-fitting! In honor of…

Cherry Juice & Probiotics

I’ve been living the dream in Oklahoma for 7 months now, and knowing life never slows down makes it very easy to ditch your healthy habits and mindlessly eat! I can’t tell you how many times I eat on-the-go or while doing something else. (Like, writing this post with my new obsession of Girl Scout…

A Lenten Look into Fasting

Happy Valentine’s Day & Happy Ash Wednesday everyone! As a Catholic, having these 2 “holidays” fall on the same day has definitely made things interesting. My boyfriend and I decided to celebrate Valentine’s Day yesterday on Fat Tuesday with pizza and a packzis. I also finished off my bag of conversation hearts (my favorite!) before…

Making Room. My Faith Journey and Lent 2018

KATI UPDATE: I have not posted on Instagram since last year, November 28, 2017…. I have not gotten my nails done, hair highlighted or purchased any clothing since before the holidays. I eat cereal at work for breakfast most days and the only thing I really do in regard to meal prep is buy prepared…
