Greetings from Utah! I’m Megan. With a degree in Dietetics from Brigham Young University and a passion for helping people have healthy food relationships, I consider myself a nutritional ally. There’s no eating right vs. eating wrong in the nutrition advice I give. Simply put, there is a place for every food in a healthy diet. However, this is my mantra: “A meal is never complete without a fresh fruit or vegetable!” That being said, a lot of how I feel about food comes from my belief in God as the Creator of all things—particularly food. I believe we, as His children, should eat the food He has provided us in its most natural form so we can have the best chance at feeling, performing, and thinking at our fullest potential.
I combine evidence-based science, a pinch of alternative medicine, and practical food preparation to teach friends how to feed themselves and their families nourishing meals with common ingredients. I am a busy mother of four young children, so my approach to healthy eating is no-nonsense. Meals have to be planned, fresh, and FAST in order to keep up with my busy lifestyle.
In my leisure, I enjoy bike riding, jogging, dabbling in music, and game nights with family and friends. I prefer to spend most of my time in the summer pulling weeds out of my garden and flower beds. During the school year, I am busy with carpools, piano practice, scouts, play practice, a workout group, and homework. I volunteer in our church’s Primary program, and I direct a neighborhood children’s choir called the “Musical Minions”.
