This first blog is way over due! For years I have worked as a Registered Dietitian, counseling people on how to make simple changes to their lifestyles for a big impact in their health, with a little impact in their wallets. I am a Nutrition Expert with an "all-foods-fit" philosophy, which comes in handy when I have to plan and prepare meals for my family of four. With two daughters- Hailey, age 10 & Kaitlyn, age 6, we are always busy between soccer, baseball, school, Girl Scouts, that I can understand the desire to reach for convienence foods & fast foods in place of a home-cooked meal. And with my husband and I both working full-time, even making lunches for the children can be a burden at times. One of the main purposes of this blog is to educate people that with a little planning and helpful hints, you can feed your family healthy meals that are tasty and filling without putting a dent in your monthly budget.
I feed my family of four on a weekly budget of around $80.00-$100.00/week. Sometimes even less! And this includes the essentials: paper goods and health items.
On top of having a focus on nutrition, I will also be giving you my honest opinion on other consumer products. I once had a good friend tell me that now that I am a MOM, my focus is more on "comfort" than "fashion". In the South, we have a response to something like that ..."well, Bless It". I believe there can be a mix of both comfort & fashion and will be sharing these tips with you as well.
Welcome to The Honest Dietitian! I look forward to helping people feed their mind, body, & soul!
