About Amanda

Hey, friends! I am a 28 year old woman and I just moved from the happiest place on earth: Washington state. The magical land where the trees are green all year round and there is a coffee shop on every corner. It really doesn’t get much better than that. I am an outdoor junkie. Trail running, climbing, backcountry camping. If I get to spend half of my day outside, I am beyond satisfied. I just relocated to Texas and am enjoying finding new things to love about a WAY different state. So far, cheap avocados and seriously excellent fish tacos are at the top of the list.

I am inherently lucky. I get to marry the craziest, and most perfect human next summer. And, I have the craziest, most fantastic husky-German Sheppard named Fig.

I have a Master’s of Science in Nutrition and Exercise Physiology, and am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and Clinical Exercise Physiologist. Although I have background in nutrition and exercise, I am not immune to struggles with body image and disordered eating. I like to talk openly about my 9+ year struggle with bulimia, restriction and exercise addiction. I find it incredibly important to initiate ongoing conversations about these topics to lift the taboo and show other women (and men) that recovery is possible. Talking about my own experiences have helped me on my journey towards better more complete health and a healthier mindset. Life after recovery is excellent, and I hope that sharing my stories can help others achieve blissful wellness.

My ultimate passion is food, and creating healthy meals that taste nothing like cardboard. My mission is to transform your concept of health-promoting foods to something that is attainable, affordable and above all delicious. Thanks for joining me here at Foodborne Wellness! I would be so joyed to hear your story, or feedback on how my recipes turned out for you as I am constantly adapting recipes to create culinary greatness.
