I’m Sarah.  I live in Lansing, MI by way of Chicago. I am originally from a super small town in Mid-Michigan, where there are more cows than people, and I learned to drive a tractor before I learned to drive a car.  Being back in Lansing is definitely an adjustment- I do miss Chicago, but Lansing and Michigan offer many wonderful things as well. Mainly beer (Michigan has the best beer/selection) period.

I am a Registered Dietitian, and Certified Diabetes Educator.  I am a runner, and I am a lover of martinis, beer, and food.  I am a dietitian, but I am also a foodie.

I also like to think I have a pretty good sense of humor, odds are if you know me, you will likely “hear me” coming through in my posts.

I started this blog because some people perceive Dietitians as being very rigid health nuts.  And some are I suppose; in my lifestyle & the way I speak to my patients – I am half an RD- Half Human.  Meaning?  I can be a realistic nutrition expert that incorporates exercise, mindful eating/REAL FOOD eating, indulgences, (with a healthy dose of evidence based guidance thrown in for good measure) when it comes to weight loss, and a healthy lifestyle.

I also started to blog to chronicle my running while I trained for my first half marathon, and the races and growth I experienced in 2013.  These experiences have expanded from there, I have now run 15-ish half marathons, and 4 marathons, and getting ready for even more in 2017.

  1. Sarah,
    You have an amazing nutrition blog, enjoyed the read very much. I started a fitness website that will officially launch January 1st 2014 at projectmayhembodies.com. The site’s purpose is to bring quality personally owned health blogs together on one site. I was curious if you would be interested in having some of your fitness articles appear on my site. The sites I’ve created get around 100,000 hits per month and I hope to do the same with this site. You can go here for more info: http://projectmayhembodies.com/health-blogger-wanted/

  2. Sarah, I am really enjoying your blog. I was wondering if you might be interested in chatting with my running team about running and proper food etc.? We have 80 athletes here in the area training for Chicago and another 70 training virtually. You could also come join us on a run if you were ever interested. If this sounds at all like anything you might be into my e-mail address is on my home page 🙂
