About the blog
Hi everyone and welcome to my blog! I started this site to share my nutrition adventures and to inspire others to experiment a little with the ways nutrition can improve our health and performance. There is a lot of misinformation out there when it comes to nutrition advice! So I hope to clear some things up, too.
I’ll be writing about my life as an adventure-loving foodie Registered Dietitian and volleyball playing, rock climbing, snowboarding yogi. I’m excited to share a few nutrition tips along the way. 🙂
About Amanda Field RDN, CD
I’ve always been fascinated by the science of nutrition and psychology, and in college I learned how much I enjoy nutrition counseling. The philosophies I practice include intuitive eating, health at every size, mindfulness, and acceptance. A lot of my past experience has been with corporate wellness programs, where I have witnessed the guilt that many people carry with them around food. My passion is helping my clients break free of that guilt and joining them on the journey towards building a healthy relationship with food to complement their lifestyle.
I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Applied Nutrition with a minor in Psychology from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, on the beautiful central coast of California, where I also competed my Dietetic Internship to become an RD. Learn more about what it takes to become an RD here.
Outside of work, I love to cook, stay active, and spend time with friends. I enjoy volleyball and a good vinyasa or restorative yoga class. Pretty much any time of year, you can find me in the mountains- snowboarding in the winter or hiking and rock climbing in the summer. Bell peppers are one of my favorite foods, I could probably eat them with almost every meal: in an egg sandwich with arugula, stuffed with meat and rice, roasted, BBQ’ed, or raw with hummus. Fresh summer strawberries with vanilla bean ice cream are a favorite treat of mine right now. I also make a mean butternut squash curry macaroni and cheese.
If you or someone you know would be interested in a nutrition consultation or learning more about my services, I’d love to hear from you! Contact me via my nutrition counseling website, here. 🙂
