Food pun swag sale- save 20%

I am often asked about how I got started making food pun tees. I'm not an artist and can't draw or paint to save my life. I've always had a silly sense of humor that I credit my dad for. As a kid, I loved puns and still do today. Being in a food field, I seek out...

Cinnamon peach galette

I am embarrassed to admit it. I've never made a homemade pie with the exception of pizza. But, that's not dessert. Pie is one of those desserts that seems daunting. You have to get the crust just right to fit into the fluted pan and if you mix the dough too much, it's...

Cinnamon dusted sweet potatoes

While I realize it's summer, I still have favorite foods that I incorporate in my meals all year long. Sweet potatoes are one of them. Despite their name, sweet potatoes have a slightly lower glycemic index than white potatoes, which means they don't raise your blood...

Collaboration is key to a successful career

I won't lie. Becoming a dietitian is not an easy path. It starts with a passion for food, health and people. You need to learn and understand anatomy, physiology and chemistry. In order to receive appropriate training, you have to apply for and be accepted into a...

Choosing exercise that works for you

It's been a tough spring. My oldest daughter was all set to go to Italy with her art class and the younger to DC with her social studies class. They'd both received these trips as gifts for Christmas since they weren't exactly cheap. Our older daughter was working...

Father’s Day Strawberry Pancakes

Father's Day has been tough for me the past seventeen years. I lost my dad on January 6, 2003. I was pregnant with my first child after a long bout of infertility. My husband was becoming a new father while I was losing my own. I was so excited to be expecting, but so...

3 Reasons why less meat is best for men

It’s no coincidence that Men’s Health month coincides with Father’s Day in June. It’s a perfect time of year to celebrate the favorite men in your life. June also follows Memorial Day- the official kick off of grilling season! Unfortunately, this grilling season may...

Mashed potato, potato pancakes

It's Memorial Day! In our house, that used to mean one of two things. We'd either be on the road back from my sister's in Raleigh for a family reunion, or we'd be heading to the Taste of Cincinnati. Unfortunately, my sister now lives in Phoenix (too far to drive,...

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.
