Hello everyone! I seem to have a penchant for obnoxiously long domain names, as I have purchased TheInformedHealthNut.com as the new home for this blog! So much has happened in the last month, I can’t even fathom it. I have now been working in the doctor office for almost two months and have really been … More killer bacon broccoli salad.
Tonight’s dinner is brought to you by bizarre cravings and hangovers. Nowadays in my old age, I typically limit myself to a drink or two when I go out – if I am even drinking. This is for a plethora of reasons: To not feel like shiz the next day. To avoid the dreaded “brain … More I love brussel sprouts.
So, I have been at my internship for far over half a year now, and I still have not gotten to partake in what I was looking forward to most. The main endocrinologist, (we’ll call him Dr. X) prescribes his patients a diet to aid them in their quest to become pregnant or just to … More Trader Joe’s hoe
Health is such a fickle thing. You can feel strong and so good for so long that you start to think that you will never get sick again. That you are just above getting sick. Then, midterms come around, you stay out late a couple times, you work out because you miss it, and BAM … More a remedy for the hard days
I have been on a ridiculous ice cream kick lately. I literally just can’t get enough – I like to think that all the calcium is seeping into my bones and I am now indestructible. To put it metaphorically, ice cream is to me what creatine is to high school football players. Only any weight … More Caramelized sweet potato ice cream with toasted marshmallow swirl

So, I’m going to spare you the details and simply throw some easy meal ideas at you. Ready? Breakfasts Lately, mornings have been very rushed, so I have had lots … More WIAW: simple meals edition
Life has this weird ability to speed up slow down simultaneously. I finished summer school on Friday after taking my Genetics final, but I don’t really have a break before school starts (in just a week and a half!) because sorority pre-recruitment has begun. It still creeps me out that I joined a sorority, but … More I baked my first cake (and I accidently made it gluten free).
This morning, I was not in the mood for any of my typical breakfasts. Eggs and toast – bleh, savory oatmeal – too hot, a protein smoothie – not filling enough, a greek yogurt bowl – lame… I wanted something new and exciting! But still satisfying, delicious, and healthy. I peered in the fridge. … More Perfect Paleo Pancakes
Chelsea’s boyfriend (and my temporary room mate) Tommy has been on a juice kick lately. He has been juicing everything, from normal things like carrots and apples, to failed attempts at banana and persimmon juice. He buys carrots in 5 lb bags from Costco and so I’ve had mountains of carrot pulp tempting me with … More What to do with your leftover juicer pulp!
Day 3: Day three was a success as far as the detox went. My headaches were still present, but more of a dull humming rather than an opera of cracked out hyenas. ……… I didn’t have any coffee, dairy, refined sugar or wheat, but my food was fugly. I was rushing around all day going … More Detox: Day 3-5. Conquering of the migraines!
