What sparked your interest in nutrition?
"I have always found the nutritional sciences to be fascinating. As I have continued to study the subject and apply it to my own life, I am able to see, first hand, the impact nutrition can have on one’s life. My interest in nutrition really stems from my own experiences and struggles with finding the balance of a healthy life style at all ages and stages."
How do you keep fit and healthy?
"I keep fit and healthy by mixing up my health routines and keeping it exciting. Once I am tired of a particular type of exercise or activity I try something new! I maintain healthy eating habits by finding creative way to eat my fruits and vegetables everyday! Sometimes this includes blending vegetables into my morning smoothies. Most importantly I aim to drink a minimum of 8 glasses of water each day. Water is key!"
Do you have any favorite cookbooks and/or books relating to health?
"I recently discovered the book 5 A Day: The Better Health Cookbook, and I have loved the fresh and appetizing recipes within it. In addition to reading cookbooks, I am always tearing out articles and recipes from magazines. Some of my favorite magazines include Woman’s Health and Health. "
What is your favorite meal or food?
"My favorite meal includes any type of fresh, grilled seafood, but my guilty pleasure is, and will always be, Kraft Mac n’ Cheese."
