SIDES, SAUCES, DRESSINGS
Hi there! My name is Jaime and I am so excited that you are here! I hope this blog provides healthful recipes, nutrition and health information, and general tips to be our better selves. My goal is to help you develop a better relationship with food, yourself, and maximize your health through gentle nutrition and movement. I want to provide insight into common misconceptions and diet fads, provide fun and delicious recipes to try out, and provide a more intuitive approach to our health. I believe in freeing ourselves from the diet culture that saturates our daily lives and work towards a more intuitive approach to our health!
A little background on me - I graduated with my Bachelor’s of Science in Nutrition degree from University of Massachusetts Amherst and my Dietetic Internship at Mass General Hospital in Boston, MA. I am currently living in Tacoma, WA with my boyfriend, Brad, and just finished working in Oncology nutrition in the outpatient setting for a few months. While living in Tacoma, I hope to enjoy the BEAUTY of nature that surrounds Washington and continue learning and growing as a professional.
My home is New Jersey / Philadelphia and I grew up going to the jersey shore and fan-girling over Pauly D (kinda kidding…). I value family and friendship more than anything and am extremely close with my extended family and some life-long friends. Some of my favorite things are - cheesy romantic comedies, dark chocolate, a big glass of red wine, Ocean City, NJ, watching the NY Yankees or Giants, going for long walks to get my exercise, and nerd-ing over nutrition talk with my nutrition colleagues!
