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...read more

I recently returned from a lovely vacation to Denver with my family. This was a first for all of us and we were pretty psyched to go west. Every year we travel with my in-laws. While most people might cringe at the thought, I'm lucky to have a loving and versatile set...read more

I'd like to get something straight. I love to eat, but like the rest of the world, I don't want to be in the kitchen all. day. long. I tend to bend towards ethnic cuisine like Thai, Mexican and Indian, but also like Italian, which I ate a lot of growing up. Over the...read more
I believe it was last summer when I was in Old Navy checking out T shirts. I have always loved T shirts- but not just any T shirts. I'll only buy a concert T shirt if the look AND feel is cool. I have to like the design and feel good when I wear it. Like most women, I...read more
I feel a little late to the kombucha party, but recently a friend posted that she had “extra scoby” and I jumped at the chance to make my own kombucha. For starters, kombucha is simply black or green tea that has bacteria and sugar added in and is left to ferment. The...read more
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!

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.
