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.

Snickers

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.

 

 

Lisa Andrews helped our company administer a “Biggest Loser” weight loss competition. Several employees lost almost 20% of their body weight! She provided healthy recipes, coupons, and met with employees to discuss their individual needs. Lisa’s wealth of nutrition knowledge helped many of our employees change their lifestyle and improve their overall health. We loved working with her and would definitely make use of her expertise in the future!

Lisa Andrews spoke at our manufacturing facility several times as part of our Wellness Program. Lisa was able to present nutrition in an easy to understand manner and gave great tips for easily packing a nutritious lunch and getting through the holidays without going overboard. Our employees greatly enjoyed Lisa’s presentations.

Lisa was wonderful to work with! She was thoughtful in her approach and shared her expertise around nutrition in an accessible and approachable way. She helped us create the curriculum and recipes for a pilot program, Culinary Camp. Her work strengthened the program and inspired kids to learn about cooking and make healthier choices.

- Michelle Stawicki, Design Impact, Social Innovation Specialist

 

 

I had Lisa speak to a group of company president’s and she kept it light while giving us great information. With so many strategies out there for diet and nutrition, she was able to make it concise and clear. She was well prepared for all of our Q&A. I recommend Lisa for your group or company.
