I work in a psychiatric hospital . Work is never dull.
I live on a 40 acre farm in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains
I am a city girl — yes I realize the contradiction :)
I have been vegetarian for over four years, for environmental reasons, and enjoy making creative meals. The only things I miss are crab cakes and BBQ pulled pork
I strive to be a domestic diva (not really!) and am currently trying my hand at embroidery and quilting. I successfully grew my first organic garden last year and will hope for bigger and better this year!
I live with my 10 year old collie-retriever-shepherd mix, Sheff, and Harley, a lab-boxer-shepherd mix who I took in the week of Thanksgiving after being hit by a car. I also foster Border Collies when things aren’t too crazy.
I am dating The Boy, an electrical engineer by day, rock drummer by night, who is always teaching me to try new things and step out of my comfort zone… and I strive to bring out his domestic skills :)
I began this blog at the start of my dietetic internship at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, and have continued it as a way to share my daily thoughts and life adventures. Glad you stopped by!
The blog is named “Everything in Moderation” for two reasons:
It is my philosophy as a dietitian. I am not the food police. You can eat any food you want. But you shouldn’t eat everything you want everyday and in unlimited quantities. Don’t be shocked that I love all things sugary – cookies, donuts, cake – but note that it is something that is balanced with fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Oh, and some exercise too! :)
My writing on this blog is truly a little of everything. I have not been able to commit to writing a 100% food/nutrition blog. Instead, this is part food blog, part dog blog, part travel, craft, nutrition, news, job, garden and anything else on my mind blog. Hope you enjoy!
**NEW** I was recently accepted to the University of North Carolina’s MPH Nutrition program and will be moving to Chapel Hill later this summer, to start class in Fall 2011.
I just wanted to let you know that your blog is being featured on All Access Internships on the Links page. If you didn’t already know, All Access Internships is a free resource for dietetics students! You can check it out at allaccessinternships.com!
Hi there! Just found your blog. Congrats on the new job!
I am also a big believer in “everything in moderation”. I could never deprive myself of some of my favorite foods!
Looking forward to reading more.
This conference will be a gathering of bloggers from throughout North America who specialize in the areas of fitness or health. I live in Boulder and can tell you it is a very active, healthy city and the perfect place for this conference.
Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to be included in conference updates. Find us on Twitter @fitnessbloggers
I’d like to invite you to participate in my research: “What Do Bloggers Want to Preserve? Defining the ‘Essence’ of User-Generated Content for Preservation.” This study will gain an understanding of how bloggers value their blogs and what elements bloggers think are important for preservation.
You are being asked to participate because your blog posts are tagged as being related to the theme of travel in one of the blog-hosting services and because your blog is not hosted by any commercial agency. Your participation is completely voluntary.
The survey is NOW OPEN and will remain open until midnight (EDT) 20 April 2011. If you are interested and would like to part in take the survey, please visit this URL: http://bloggersurvey.web.unc.edu/
Thank you in advance for considering participation in my study!
