My name is Jamila [“Jay-mih-luh”] and I’m a twenty something Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) and ACE Certified Personal Trainer with a Masters degree in Food Science. When I’m not cooking up a storm in my kitchen, training at the gym, or working with clients, I’m busy spending time with my family and friends.
Every Registered Dietitian is a nutritionist but not every nutritionist is a Registered Dietitian.” **
In today’s world it seems like every food is classified as “good” or “bad”. I personally prefer living in the grey area. You get the best of both worlds without having to make as much of a sacrifice.
I have a “no nonsense” approach to nutrition.
No scare tactics. No empty promises of unrealistic goals or outcomes. Just real information that lets you decide what is right for you.
My main philosophy can be summed up in a few words: balance and moderation. Do I have a perfect plan or ideal way for you to eat? No. Because everyone is different. There really is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ for how to eat. Some people have allergies, medical conditions, or beliefs that require different dietary needs. Not to mention, we all have very different food preferences! I think you will find this site very useful as I will post a variety of topics and recipes that can fit into a wide range of lifestyle needs. My goal is to open your awareness to new possibilities as it relates to food and wellness. To use a quote as inspiration (only because my husband and I are huge hockey fans — Go Pens!)…

You can apply the same philosophy to living well. If one way of doing something (a diet, a fitness plan) doesn’t work out for you, try something else. You won’t know what works and what doesn’t unless you try. The key is to try different things and see what works for you. And, more importantly, ensure it’s something you can maintain. As I’m sure you’ve heard before, the only thing that works is to make it a lifestyle and not the diet “flavor” of the week.

Keep it simple. Do what works for you. Eat, drink, and live well. Welcome to my site!
