Hi there! I’m Nancy, a mom, registered dietitian, certified diabetes educator, health writer, and group exercise instructor practicing in Boston, Massachusetts.
I first fell into blogging years ago through Stacy DeBroff at Mom Central, a leader in the mommy blog movement. While on maternity leave I worked for her briefly where she inspired me to start FitMamaEats. My son was young and I had plenty of mommy content to write about. It was a fun project that lasted many years with great collaborations with local and national companies, but that required a lot of attention. I backed off from it in 2016 as the mommy blog sphere had become super-saturated with talented bloggers and my other work became more demanding.
This new blog RDRecipeResource was created for the people I see every week with health conditions who ask “Well, then what can I eat?” My usual response was to refer them to websites and recipe articles I’d filed away on Pinterest, but I realized that sometimes recipes look better in pictures than how they actually taste! So this site features only recipes that I’ve tested and tasted…and enjoyed.
The recipes are plant-centric because I strongly believe in the healing power of whole foods, and quick to prepare because that’s what weekday meals usually require! I’m the opposite of a food snob and generally lazy in the kitchen, so I scope out accessible ingredients and simple instructions.
Feel free to email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or make an appointment with me for personalized guidance through the Nutrition Clinic at Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital. Also check out The Nutrition Source for more in-depth nutrition and health articles, where I work as a writer for the Harvard School of Public Health, and Today’s Dietitian where I’m a contributor to their blog, RD Lounge.
Nowadays there are a million and one blogs to check out, so thank you for taking the time to visit mine!
