After this picture was taken, we ate pizza!

Let’s see…for as long as I can remember, I have loved food.  My mom says she vividly remembers me sitting in my highchair with a piece of chocolate and a broccoli stalk, thoroughly enjoying both.  As a freshman in college I realized that studying nutrition would be a really cool way to help people and still do something I love. So I transferred to UVM to study nutrition and got  to live in the GREAT city of Burlington, VT for a little over 2 years(recently ranked healthiest city in the US).

Now I am doing a dietetic internship(for those who don’t know it’s basically a year of clinical, community, and foodservice work to help you build a foundation and hopefully figure out the direction you want to go in).  I am learning a lot about food and nutrition; so much so that it gets confusing to me, even with all my years of nutrition classes.  Add in all the different buzz words in the media, and the twists that food companies put on products and “eating healthy” can be confusing for everyone.  My hopes for this blog are to help straighten out some common misconceptions about healthy eating and write about what I love- food!

how cute!!
how cute!!

So….a little more about me…I currently live in Boston, I am obsessed with my Australian Shepard, Dancer(who still lives in NY where I am originally from), I love green tea, pizza(especially salad pizza!), chocolate, tofu, carrot cake, and hummus!  I am very excited to get my RD in the next few months, although my current main focus will be walking( I tore my ACL skiing a few weeks ago and am 2 days post-op).

p.s. i do realize that Lisa does not actually rhyme with Pizza, but most people find it close enough and I do love Pizza~
