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!

  • I love taking salad kits and jazzing them up to make them a meal! This is the southwestern salad kit (some of it) + arugula for dark greens + leftover salmon from the fridge. The gangs all here! I got some movement in at the Y and I feel like a new person 👌🏼 Happy Monday!
  • ✌🏻out Nashville. Full recap on the blog tomorrow- eats, drinks, and activities! I have two flights between me and my last semester of grad school! Can you tell I'm excited to start rotations? Hope you had a wonderful weekend!

  • Pistachio + fig + honey CRONUT. To everyone who told me @five_daughters_bakery was a must- THANK YOU! This makes up for me loosing my raybans in an Uber today. Nashville, I'm a fan of you!
  • The day before flying I get super restless, antsy, and anxious and today is that day. I haven't felt much peace today but I did get my favorite sandwich from @bergessandwiches (turkey avocado on rye) and I'm hoping to finish packing and tend to my email early before trying to shut down my brain a bit. Hope you are having a great day- stay tuned for #constancelytraveling tomorrow! Nashville I'm (almost) ready for ya!
  • When you can't bite into food due to a major issue with your "permanent" retainer you make oats and sprint to the orthodontist who you haven't seen in 10 years 😂 A mix of steel cut + @rightfoods apple flax oatmeal with added flax and chia cooked in milk + PB and banana with a little maple syrup too! See ya for lunch friendz
  • "We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be?" I heard Marianne Williamson's words again this past weekend and was just like YAS. Happy 🐫 day friends! @rebeccaorlandiniphoto ❤️
