Lisa Andrews is Nutrigirl!

I’ve paired my love of food, science and people by becoming a Registered Dietitian. My nickname Nutrigirl started about 20 years ago when I needed an email account. Having a painfully long, Italian last name didn’t lend well to an email address, and so Nutrigirl was born. I’d be lying if I said I am “mild mannered”. Outgoing by nature, my friends and clients know I’m not going to sugar coat my nutrition advice. With so much food and health information out there (good and bad), Nutrigirl is your nutrition hero. I’m here to provide sound, nutrition advice, while making sure you are enjoying your food! When I like a health article, recipe or nutrition-related advice, I will stamp it #Nutrigirlapproved.



We knew after adopting Snickers in July, 2014 that she was no ordinary kitty. She is a tortoise cat and has “tortitude”. Snickers is a true foody and always in the kitchen at meal time. Despite her candy bar name, Snickers literally reaches for kale, spinach and broccoli when we’re prepping it. Snickers likes a challenge and will seek hydration from the sink, toilet or your water glass. If she likes what you’re making (or eating), she’ll give you the “high paw” and you know your recipe is #Snickersapproved.

Be kaleful!

I admit it, I wasn’t always a kale fan.  It was rough, bitter and voluminous.  If you bought a bunch, you’d feel like you’d be eating it for days.  But there’s a few secrets to kale.  This beautiful leafy green vegetable needs love.  To make your kale more palatable,... read more

Corn Tortillas

I’ll admit I was skeptical at first. I’d never really liked tacos made with soft corn tortillas. It was the white flour type or the fried ones I’d been used to. But then my husband found the simplest recipe for homemade corn tortillas, and I was... read more

The quest for perfection…

Nobody’s perfect.  We all have some physical ‘flaws’ we’d like to improve.  We want perfect skin, a perfect waistline, perfect teeth.  The question is- why?  Perhaps part of the problem (particularly for women) is that we’re constantly bombarded of images of ‘perfect’... read more

Oven baked fries

I know there’s a lot of low carb, potato haters out there, but I’m not one of them! Potatoes are a good source of potassium and vitamin C, and not too shabby on fiber. Like any American gal, I like a good grilled burger now and then (lean grass fed beef, of course),... read more

What’s a GMO?

There’s a lot of talk about GMOs these days.  GMO stands for genetically modified organism.  Scientists alter genes in a plant (in a lab) in order to add or delete desirable or undesirable characteristics, respectively.  For example, they may alter a protein to make a... read more
