COVID-19 Impacting Dietetic Internships

The past several weeks have been extremely. . . interesting. I don’t mean for that to sound insensitive, it has just been interesting to see how different people are handling the COVID-19 pandemic. I only intend to speak to my own experiences as a dietetic intern who has observed some of the impacts on a small corner of our healthcare system in the U.S. For anyone reading this who isn’t…

Hunger Action Month 2018

This is just a quick note that September is Hunger Action Month and although we’re already about halfway through the month, there’s still time to get out there and do something. I suggest checking out FeedingAmerica.org to find a local food bank or doing a google search for opportunities near you to volunteer some of your time. My experience with food banks has been with the Beaverton location of the Oregon…

Impression of My First ‘Imperfect Produce’ Box

I was not sponsored by Imperfect Produce. My opinions and experiences expressed here are my own and I am not affiliated with Imperfect Produce.

Merging Careers: Art & Science, hand-in-hand?

A blogger I follow published an article yesterday mentioning how July is half over already and its been a month since he last posted anything. I realized I haven’t published a new article since May! Well, if you’re interested, I’d like to explain why: About a year to a year and a half ago I was living in an apartment with my boyfriend and another roommate. I was working crappy…
