Baby’s First Pancakes

This is a recipe I’ve been making for Cooper for over 2 months now, that can be enjoyed in many homes. Thanks to Egg Nutrition Center for sponsoring this post! All scientific information is research-based and all opinions are my own.

Breakfast is hands down my favorite meal. I look forward to pancakes on the weekends and reach for eggs after exercise no matter what meal of the day it is. A dietitian friend who is aware of my love for pancakes even sent Cooper a pancake onesie knowing how excited I would be when we could share that meal together. Surely, eggs and pancakes were both bound to be some of the first foods I introduced Cooper to, and now two months later, his egg-based “Coopercakes” are regularly on his plate!

Dietitian’s Top Product Picks for Feeding Baby (and Toddler)

Since the little guy came into the world just over 8 months ago, I’ve had so many questions from readers, social media followers, and friends about nursing, feeding, and other topics related to infant health. I’ve decided to share more of my opinions and experiences, but also send my readers to other dietitians and health professionals who specialize in pediatrics!

Lentil Walnut Stuffing

Ah, stuffing. The main reason I look forward to Thanksgiving food. It was my favorite as a child and while other sides are close contenders, still is now! I love the texture and flavor of a classic stuffing both on Thanksgiving Day, and afterward mixed with protein and veggies for new meal creations.

Sweet Potato Snickerdoodles

I’ll be the first to admit, I did not grow up much of a snickerdoodle fan. Chocolate chip cookies will always be my #1, but with snickerdoodle being Tim’s favorite, I’ve found myself making them and actually enjoying them, too!

Pumpkin Cranberry Energy Bites

I know some of you are still wishing it was summer {okay, I sort of am, too}, but the weather this past week has cooled down and gotten gloomy, so fall food is on the menu! There’s so much running around after Labor Day as we acclimate back to our regular schedules that it’s easy to ignore our body’s signals letting us know it needs some fuel for all the things you make it do everyday!

Allowing Imperfect Perfection

Serious real talk alert. This post is a long one and an open/more personal one. This past weekend, a friend asked me if everything was going as good as it seems on Instagram with the little babe. I instantly felt a bit of guilt for potentially showing so much good that I seem like one of those people trying to only show perfection on social media. This virtual world is proven to make people feel bad about themselves and I want to do the opposite with my online presence. The reality is I just don’t have as much time in general to share on the channel as I used to as I navigate new-Mom-hood, and when Cooperman is being fussy it doesn’t even cross my mind to snap a pic or take a video.

Let’s Get Real: NEDAwareness 2018


If you follow along with my blog, are a recent student of mine, or have attended any of my seminars, you know I have developed a strong intuitive eating philosophy. It’s not only to treat eating disorders or disordered eating in the athletes and active individuals I work with, but also to prevent these problems, improve physical and mental health, and help people recognize there is so much more to life than comparing their body to others (or their former selves).

In January, I gave a talk at the Newtown Athletic Club titled “Breaking up With Dieting”. I was excited by the number of people who attended, but more so by the interaction during the talk and the feedback I received afterwards about how enlightening it was. Continue reading
