Hello! Lovely to meet you
My name is Erin. I started this blog as a way to share what I have learned, working as a Nutrition Educator around Boston. On a personal level, I am hoping that it will inspire me to continue to grow and learn.
Unsurprisingly, I love nutrition. I love the science of metabolism, the valuable connections between culture and food, the excitement of trying a new meal and even exploring the confusing emotions that govern body image.
I quickly learned that in order to share this love with others, I had to be able to communicate effectively. It takes a lot of mental energy to edit my speech into a clear and understandable flow. I still have to think about it every time I open my mouth. Additionally, I also found it important to meet people where they are in their nutrition relationship. Not everyone has a positive relationship with food and it’s important to respect that.
I like to sum up my strategy into a phase that you might see a lot around this site:
Be kind and keep an open mind.
What I believe in
- Free access to accurate Nutrition information
- Treating everyone as a valued individual
- Supporting body positivity and HAES
- Continued learning and exploration
