We are almost a year into this first time parent thing and I feel WAY more confident in creating a registry than I did a year ago. It’s crazy to me to think back. I had NO idea what to expect. You can truly read as much as you want but until you’re in it […]

Baby Registry Checklist: What We Loved & Used 1 Year Later

Ok, we all know that supply chain issues are a real thing this year AND we also know our local economies rely on us to survive even the best of years. So, I decided that this year I was going to create a regular Holiday Gift Guide along with an Upstate New York gift guide […]

Upstate New York Holiday Gift Guide

2021 Holiday Gift Guide

I cannot believe it’s already the end of November, where has the year gone?!? I know the holidays were weird last year, well at least they were for us so I’m hoping that they are a little more normal for us all this year as I think we could all use it. Anywho, it’s that […]

2021 Holiday Gift Guide

baby-led weaning

There is so much information out there for new moms and even 2nd and 3rd (etc etc) moms & parents that it is overwhelming. Believe me, I am overwhelmed most days of the week. However, one topic that has been so much fun for me to dig into has been feeding my baby. The problem […]

Baby-Led Weaning (BLW) – A Dietitian’s Guide to Get Started

protein bars

I get asked at least once per week what the best healthy protein bars are that I recommend. Since so many were asking I felt it was time we had a permanent post for you to reference when looking for a protein bar. I know that not everyone will agree and some will be sad […]

The Best Healthy Protein Bars

A year ago I had a miscarriage and it forever changed my life. It’s not something I ever knew was so common nor did I think it would ever happen to me. However, 1 in 4 women are likely to experience a miscarriage. That is a SHOCKING statistic and so the more we know the […]

What To Say When Someone Has A Miscarriage

I cannot believe I am finally sitting down over a month later to share with you the birth story of Connor James Ligos. If I’m being completely honest I never thought I’d be one to share something like this. I am usually pretty private as far as my personal life goes but something changed in […]

Connor’s Birth Story


I have been asked a lot lately about the need to supplement with collagen. As always, it depends. However, that’s not sufficient for most people so we will dig in a little deeper.  It has been a fad for a while now but it seems to pick up steam every few months and right now […]

Should You Be Taking Collagen?

It’s always amazing to me what fads become popular and which ones fade away. The greens powder fad seems to be one that started out kind of slow and is now more popular than ever. Usually when a fad is this popular it’s because many are making claims about it in the media. Now that […]

Should you Take a Greens Powder?

I have been hesitant to write this post most of my pregnancy because frankly I felt like no one would care AND I also was scared that if I shared anything it would all be taken away from me, yeah talk about not okay. Then I thought more about it and realized that I have […]

Pregnancy After Loss: My Pregnancy Journey

protein shakes

This post is sponsored by SFH Protein, but all my thoughts are my own.   Some of the most frequently asked questions I receive as a sports dietitian have to do with nutritional supplements for exercise. Many people wonder if they should be drinking a protein shake before or after a workout or if they […]

Do You Need to Drink Protein Shakes After a Workout?

Often I’m asked what people should eat more of or what the best foods are. I love this question because it truly differs for everyone. However, I also love the question because I prefer to focus on the positives as it comes to your nutrition. Instead of focusing on what you can’t have I’d much […]
