Food for Thought

Hello! I’m Kristina and I’m a recent graduate from the University of Guelph with a major in Biological Sciences and minor in Mathematical Sciences.  In my senior years at school, I developed a strong passion for human health and nutrition and ever since then I’m constantly reading up on all the latest nutrition news, working part-time at a nutrition store in St. Catharines as a nutritional consultant, and I’m constantly telling my family “No, don’t eat that, that’s not healthy”.  I’m in the process of applying for graduate studies in the field of Human Health and Nutrition and specializing in Nutritional and Nutraceutical Sciences. My dream career is to become a nutritionist and what better way to begin then starting a blog that is completely nutrition-related?

I’m not gonna lie, I have my moments where I binge on junk food.  I love chips, who doesn’t? They’re salty and delicious and I can eat a whole bag if they’re in front of me. Timbits too. I have a terrible weakness for honey dip timbits.

So this is my very first blog and I’m super excited to get started. Since I’m a science-based individual, I’m not a very big writer, however I’m pretty pumped to write short and sweet informative little blogs.  I’ll do my best to post a couple blogs a week and the focus of each blog I write will be geared towards something in the field of nutrition – literally anything that has to do with food, supplements, health, disease, or general well-being. If I read something interesting from one of my nutrition magazines or come across anything especially exciting I’ll definitely share and feature it within my blogs.  So if you’re a foodie or just generally interested in learning a few cool facts regarding nutrition and health, then feel free to grab a (healthy!) snack, sit back, and enjoy the read!

Cheers,

KT
