About the RD

I’m Julie, and I love food! I’m a 27-year-old Registered Dietitian from Wisconsin eating, drinking, cooking, and tasting my way through the world. Although I promote an overall healthy diet and using fresh, local, and minimally processed ingredients, I can’t deny my Badger roots; sorry, but you’ll never convince me to stop eating brats, cheese, or beer! My goal is to help you see that life is all about balance, and give you some great ideas on how to live an overall healthy lifestyle while still letting yourself indulge in some really great food.

I grew up in New Berlin, WI, went to college at the University of Wisconsin – Madison, and did my dietetic internship at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. I became an RD in July of 2010, and currently live in Whitewater, WI. 26 of my 27 years of life have been spent in Wisconsin, and many Wisconsin traditions have been passed down to me from my parents and grandparents that I am excited to share!

This is Pat, my wonderful husband, and also my official taste-tester, who helped me build this website! I’m lucky to have someone who eats whatever I make, but he can also be my toughest critic- which means I’m constantly becoming a better cook. It also helps that we have very similar tastes.

And, our dog, Shandy. Yup, like Leinie’s Summer Shandy!

As an amateur photographer, and as admittedly terrible as some pictures might be (the light in my kitchen is horrible!), I have taken all of the pictures in my posts. All I ask is that if you’re going to use them, please ask, or link back to this website!
