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! Β

  • Current lunch situation- fresh cheese ravioli with @sprouts pasta sauce and parm + a massaged kale salad with lemon garlic @tessemaes + roasted veg! @milkandeggscom saved my weekend with all my favorites delivered to the front door! Wishing you a very happy Monday!
  • Slow morning with @the_gutgirl (who is filling me in on all things fiber πŸ˜‚) and some modified @minimalistbaker GF pancakes + coffee! More about this weeks eats and outfits on the blog later today! Can I have my friends cook for me all the time?!
  • Spending the day in Santa Monica with friends and I stopped in @foreverytable to grab some lunch and was so happy with my choice! Not only is @foreverytable working to make more nutrient dense options available to more communities but they are making it taste REALLY good. This salad was about 6.50 and tasty AF πŸ‘πŸ» Happy hour is next on my list!
  • This is 23. The most fun year to date. Filled with food (and drink) freedom, appreciation for myself and excitement for tomorrow. These ladies are going to have those MS, RD letters after their names too and I'm lucky to call them friends!
  • Cleaned out the fridge with with salad before heading to campus. Mixed greens, roasted onions and potatoes, goat cheese, black beans, and pear + vinaigrette! Happy Wednesday!
  • Sharing smiles from my totally average and normal tummy rolls to yours! I've been spending more time being a 23 year old as of late- traveling the last 3 out of 4 weekends, focusing on school/family/community, and spending a lot of time with humans and not my screen. Good things happening- almost done with the semester and only have 1 more before rotations πŸ™€, sister comes home in a month, and Christmas music is now on the radio.

I'm REALLY looking forward to winter break where I'm hoping to get to some new restaurants, rest, see my people, and take some more time for constancelyeating. Let me know some exciting things going on in your life πŸ‘‡πŸ»
  • There's no @stansdonutschicago in Fresno but there's plenty of oatmeal to go around πŸ˜‚! Spending my last day here with my high school humans and heading back to be home by this evening. Current situation = sleep deprived and exhausted but always happy to be with @ymcaofthefoothills and @vhyfamily !
  • Some real life eats right here πŸ‘†πŸ» @chipotlemexicangrill veggie bowl on the bus up to Fresno. Wasn't totally hungry but got some and ate about 1/2 because the food options are super limited once we get up there and part of eating intuitively is planning for how you will feel in a few hours not just at this second. Hanger and teenagers are not a good mix so I try and prevent that πŸ˜‚ Up on the blog are some recent eats and what I wore this week! Happy FRIYAY!
