Welcome to So Damn Good, I’m so glad you stopped by! I’m Caitlyn and I began this blog as a way to share my passion for nutrition and well being. After one college degree and a job that led me to be unsure of what I wanted to do with my life, I did some soul searching for what truly made me happy: food, nutrition, and learning about ways to make yourself and your body better. As I set out to get a second degree in nutrition and eventually become a Registered Dietitian, I realized that I needed a space to share my passion. And that’s where this comes into play.
My Nutrition Philosophy:
I realize that many people feel that “nutrition people”, whether it be dietitians, interns, or dietetic students, are the food police. Honestly, this could not be further from the truth. I am simply someone who loves food, with a special passion for whole and nutritious foods. I think it’s amazing what food can do for our body (and mouth), and want to share that with the world. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some french fries, ice cream, and red wine just as much as you do. Everything in moderation, right? I’m human too.
As a student, I realized one of my largest frustrations was the misunderstanding of health and nutrition from the general public. There are so many things deemed to be “healthy” that really just aren’t. I firmly believe that with better nutrition, comes a better life. This is where I would love to share that passion with all of you.
Let’s be honest, who doesn’t love food? Cooking, tasting, and experimenting with food is one of my favorite pastimes. Let’s put the thought that nutritious food is boring out of our minds, because this could not be further from the truth. I want to teach you how to take a bite of something nutritious and think “that’s so damn good”.
