I'm Carrie: a 30 yo registered dietitian living in the deep south with 1 husband, 2 dogs, and 1 cat.
I had a weird path to nutrition. I graduated (the first time) with a degree in economics and business. I spent 2
I met my husband in college (the first time) when we were both sophomores, and have been together ever since. We got married in 2003 and he started med school that same year. I can't really recommend doing both at the same time. It was just a little bit stressful and somewhat of a life change. A few years ago we up and moved to another state so he could do his residency in radiology. Yes, we are an incredibly nerdy couple. He has 1.5 more years of residency and 1 year of fellowship left and then he will be a real doctor! After a mere 10 years of post-graduate education. He's completely awesome and the absolute best person I know.
I'm starting this blog as a way to hopefully entertain, educate, and motivate others-and myself. I want it to be somewhat just talking about my own struggles of knowing how to eat right and be healthy...and yet not wanting to do those things. Discussion about misinformation or nutrition research. Healthy recipes that actually taste good. Real, practical issues. I feel like there are a lot of health/wellness blogs out there that focus very heavily on what that person ate each day or how many miles she ran--this is not that kind of blog. I'm definitely not knocking those blogs-they can be very informative and motivational! It just isn't me. I call my blog Confessions of a Dietitian because I definitely struggle and ignore all my education and eat brownies instead. I am unlikely to ever run a marathon, but I do still exercise. I am never going to be a vegan or a particularly great chef, but I do try to make good food choices. I am just trying to make healthier choices and encouraging others to do so also.
