Why is Abby a registered dietitian nutritionist?
Right before I went to college my mom began struggling with food intolerances. This experience fueled my interest to study nutrition and become a Registered Dietitian because I wanted to help others that were struggling like my mom. Secondly, I loved food as a child and had to learn in college how to enjoy food without obsessing over it or fearing it.Those experiences have transformed into a passion to help others with their nutrition needs!
How does Abby stay healthy?
Abby and her husband value cooking balanced meals at home so she prioritizes meal planning and grocery shopping on the weekends. That way, she knows what’s for dinner every night and has all the ingredients on hand! She eats fruits or vegetables with every meal and never skips breakfast. She enjoys doing low impact workouts like walking, hiking, or at home strength training a few times a week.
