I’m always on the lookout for 2 things when I’m grocery shopping: Good food and good deals. Shoppers now have even more tasty reasons to head to ALDI with their grocery lists, and they might want to add some new items to their carts.

In fact, I learned that 1 in 5 ALDI […]

When you’re trying to lose weight, often your friends and loved ones become your biggest obstacle, contributing to halting your best efforts in your weight loss program. Since those closest to us have the greatest influence on our eating habits, be sure to stay dedicated to your goal by watching out for the top 6 diet saboteurs in your life.
Men have a higher amount of muscle mass and lower body fat percent than women. Since their energy needs and metabolism are much higher, they can consume more calories without gaining weight. Ladies: Never try to […]
I hear from clients all too often that eating healthy is expensive. Myth! It really honestly doesn’t have to be. The biggest food cost is food waste…not using the food you bought and it going to waste instead! So plan ahead and be creative with leftovers and you will save lots of money!
I have partnered with ALDI grocery stores for a few years now because I love, love, love their high quality brands at a fraction of the price. Even after all of these years I never cease to be amazed when I get to the […]
The change from summer to fall marks a new school year for some, a transition to cooler weather for others, and kicks off the holiday season for most. It’s also a time to enjoy the produce that hits its prime this time of year – we’re talking corn, cranberries, apples, and, of course, pumpkins!
• Corn. Complex carbohydrates, like corn, are essential to a healthy diet. They provide the body with vitamins, minerals, and fiber. Corn is a good source of two essential minerals, manganese and phosphorus. These two nutrients help keep our bones healthy and strong. Corn is also […]
With the kids out of school, I try to take some extra days off in the summer to spend with them and entertain friends and family. I am proud to work with ALDI because they have everything you need to prepare for your sun-filled celebration, including better-for-you appetizers, main dishes, drinks and desserts, all without the premium price tag.

It’s March, which means it’s National Nutrition Month! You likely don’t have that marked on your calendar, but as a dietitian/nutritionist, this is the month we dietitians live for! This year’s theme is “Go Further With Food” and I’ve got three foods you may or may not be already familiar with that I absolutely LOVE!
Coconut water is one of the best natural beverages you can drink. It’s delicious and refreshing and rich in electrolytes, particularly potassium. Over 50% of Americans aren’t getting […]
The New Year often starts with all kinds of resolutions to say “no” to behaviors we don’t want to engage in. We say “no” to way too much when it comes to the New Year and try to cut everything out all at once. And the all-or-nothing philosophy doesn’t last very long for most people.
But what are you saying “Yes” to, especially when it comes to your diet? I know, this coming from a dietitian. Believe it or not, I don’t want you to suffer and cut out all fun in your life […]
Cancer has hit me hard. I have personally not had cancer, but the disease took Stephen – my beloved husband and father of my boys – in October, 2012. Specifically stomach cancer.
I have decided to partner with Eli Lily and Company because I want to do anything I can do to help people fighting stomach cancer and those who are caregivers for them. I am a Registered Dietitian and even I was confused as to what Stephen could eat and what foods would be best for him as he went through his fight.
This holiday season as everyone enjoys special […]
Athletes come in all shapes, sizes, and skill levels. One thing that remains consistent with all athletes – whether you’re a professional athlete or a weekend warrior – recovery is extremely important. During exercise our muscles break down, and in order to recover efficiently proper nutrition (and the timing of it) is crucial.
An important nutrition component of building healthy, strong muscles is protein. Protein is the building block of all the cells in our bodies, especially our muscles. It is therefore essential we consume enough of it. You’ve heard that post-workout protein is important, but what about proper […]
