Welcome to Chard in Charge! I’m a registered dietitian with a passion for all things whole grain, green, and homegrown. I started this blog three years ago to empower and inspire my readers to take charge of their wellness through simple plant-based recipes and evidence-based nutrition information.
They’re exactly what I cook at home: mostly made from plants, seasonal and easy to recreate. I strive to keep my recipes free from fancy terminology or hard-to-find ingredient/tools making them attainable for everyone’s kitchen and budget. I’m all about balance – eating well does not mean deprivation or restriction and I hope my recipes reflect that.
THE HONEST TRUTH
Ten years ago, I was definitely not a nutrition nerd or even a remotely healthy eater. I ran cross country, track, and horseback rode most of my teenage years and fueled myself by cookies and candy. Shocking, I know. But things changed during high school when my best friend was hospitalized with an eating disorder. My perspective on food and healthy living did a complete 180. I started to recognize food as nourishment for mind, body, and spirit. I began to make more conscious choices about what I was eating and paid more attention to my mom in the kitchen. I knew right away that I wanted to become a Registered Dietitian to help people learn how to nourish their bodies in a positive and belly-satisfying way.
