Welcome! I am Katie Harlow, MS. In May of 2016 I completed my Master of Science in Nutrition and the didactic portion of my training to be a registered dietitian. I am currently a dietetic intern in North Carolina and, if all goes as planned, will finally be an RD in the summer of 2017.

I’m a career-changer. Once upon a time, I worked for a magazine, then a travel company, and finally, after three years of dragging my feet, I quit my job and headed back to school full time to pursue a career that would align with my passion for food and science.

Many years ago I started this small food and fitness blog that never made it very far. If you go all the way back to the beginning of my archives, you’ll find my early days but much has changed since then, including this space. Today I focus on food and nutrition mostly. This is such a young science and there are still more questions than answers. In my nutrition posts you will find my thoughts on the latest trends and emerging research.

On a lighter note, you’ll see some postings about life in general. As much as I love being active and learning new things, I also love laying on the couch with Netflix, wasting hours on Pinterest, trying to inspire my lifeless hair, or traveling some place new.
