I’m Katelyn, the nutritionist and foodie behind this site. I started Nutrition Served Simply (NSS) to help make sense of the ever-changing nutrition research and food trends buzzing in the media. With a background in nutrition science and psychology, I hope to show you that nutrition and healthy living does not need to be complicated or stressful. On this blog, I focus on making healthy eating simple, satisfying, and balanced with all the pleasures and stressors that come with life.
My Food Philosophy
While I find nutrition science fascinating (nerd alert!), I believe food is about much more than calories and nutrients. More than nourishment at the cellular level, food plays a huge role in our physical, emotional, and social health and wellbeing. Here are a few of my core beliefs:
- Nutrition is a science too often complicated by myths, misinformation, and negativity
- Eating whole foods most of the time lets us feel our best physically—healthy, strong, and energized
- Listening to our hunger and fullness (free of food rules, fear, and guilt) is equally important for our emotional and psychological health
- Balancing food, fitness, and mindfulness with all of life’s ups and downs is the key to living our happiest and healthiest lives
