About Me

Hi! My name is Constance, Connie for short, and I'm so excited you are here. I'm a full time graduate student and part time teaching associate at the California State University Los Angeles where I'm studying Nutritional Science + the Coordinated Dietetic Program. My journey to nutrition first came to be through my undergraduate studies at DePaul University in Chicago, a place I consider my second home. Through falling in love with the sciences, my experience as an AFAA group fitness instructor, and my love for people, I realized that helping others improve their lives through food and their mentality surrounding food was something I would want to do for the rest of my life. Besides nutrition (I believe everyone needs hobbies) I work with kids of all ages and enjoy connecting with them through my two favorite organizations, the YMCA of The Foothills, and the American Youth Soccer Organization. My passion lies in nutrition education and I hope to work in outpatient education as an RD!

  • Lunch at my favorite grab and go place @foreverytable today post hike! They offer affordable options that are priced differently in each city 👏🏻 Hope you are having a wonderful Monday!
  • Wanna practice some self care without breaking the bank!? I stock up on the value size of the @cvspharmacy lavender epsom salt (6.99 for lots of baths) and actually they had some great wine on sale this week too (4.99) that's next to the salt. I get my candles (9.99) from @homegoods because anthro candles are just too aggressive on my grad school wallet and voila! A soothing bath before you go out or stay in this Saturday evening. This also makes a great addition to a bed time routine- it's in mine most evenings 💆🏽
  • I'm still sticking to my decision to step away from the blog for a while and only post when it feels natural SO today after my sacred coffee time I complied links and descriptions of my favorite books to help you get to a healthy relationship with food. I wish everyone could read these ESPECIALLY us students entering the health field- nurses, future doctors, physical therapists, dietitians, therapists- anyone. I also FINALLY added Intuitive Eating as required reading for my little 1 unit class at CSULA (I typically only teach sections) because if I can plant seeds even in 25 students a semester you bet your bottom dollar I'm making that happen. Link is in my bio and I'll add it to my non-diet story highlight 🍩 📷 @lylahrosewolff
  • Shrimp Scampi with 1/2 whole wheat (or cardboard as my dad calls it) and half regular noodles + some Pinot Grigio for a family dinner home tonight! My sister and I are going through old photos of us and my stomach hurts from laughing so hard 😂 Hope you all had a great evening!
  • Life is better with donuts. Just sayin ✌🏻I was skeptical (only because I've never had an awesome baked donut) but pleasantly surprised by how delish @fonuts were! We got the classic vanilla and the chocolate banana and they are WAY up there on my list of awesome donuts in LA! Wishing you a happy Tuesday 🍩
  • I was scrolling through my phone for a food photo for the weekend but I came up empty handed because I was just celebrating with my grad school friends for hours then spending time with my family- that's pretty much it! I am getting so excited to head to the Midwest for a month to eat oodles of Jenis with my cousin and take many walks along the lakefront - with a few stops at @realgoodjuiceco of course 👆🏻I would love to know what you guys are looking forward to! 👇🏻
  • The typical Weissmuller welcome home meal at @innout - also can we just talk about how the chocolate shake is just EVERYTHING?! Happy Saturday friends! 🍔
  • My friends wanted @erewhonmarket but I wanted nothing else besides a GOOD 🍩 so we stopped at @bluestardonuts for a chocolate old fashioned and cinnamon sugar + @stumptowncoffee to share with my gal pals before brunching! Guys, THEY ARE SO GOOD.
