Tribute to Craig (and how to prevent GI cancer)

It's hard to believe it's been a year since I lost my brother-in-law, Craig. Craig actually hadn't married my sister yet, but they were engaged to be married and we'd spent enough time with him to be "family" to me. Craig was one of these guys you immediately liked....

It’s almost fall!

I don't know what it is about fall. It could be the drop in temperature, the beautiful leaves changing or the fact that I love Halloween, but I'm never disappointed to see summer go and fall roll in. I'm also a fan of fall produce. Despite the availability of produce...

T shirt booth Sunday, 9-8

You know you're a nerd when you're looking forward to standing outside for 5 hours in the heat to sell T shirts. I never thought I'd enjoy giving up a weekend day to do a tent show, but I have drunk the kool-aid. I don't exactly feel like an "artist" at these shows. I...

Let’s get spicy!

Is your pantry loaded with random herbs and spices that you’ve never tried? Perhaps you just need to pair them with food to make the magic happen. If possible, store herbs in a cool, dry place (meaning, not above your stove). Most dried herbs lose their potency in...

Gluten & IBS

One pan pork and potatoes

I'm like any other working parent with kids returning to school soon. I have limited time and patience to get dinner on the table! I also don't want arguments at meal time. My feeling on meal time is that the less drama, the better. Kids aren't going to eat food they...

New fall T for avocado lovers!

Some people are really crafty. They can take pipe cleaners and make them into dolls. Or sew pillow cases or paint beautiful pictures. I'm not one of these people. My craft is verbal. Words are my medium. I love games at baby showers where you have to come up with as...

Lettuce taco ’bout school lunch!

It's hard to believe it's almost mid-August, which means school will be back in session within days. Gone are the lazy days in our home of waking at 9 with breakfast at 10 and lunch at 2. Soon my girls will be eating "lunch" at 10:30 with the rest of Cincinnati Public...

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.



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!

- Nancy Myles, PHR, SHRM-CP-Human Resource Manager, Kadant Black Clawson




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.

- Mary Kay Swadener, SPHR, SHRM-SCP
Human Resource Manager



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.
