Official Vitamin (Ph)D Facebook Page!

Good morning, and happy Sunday! I have been a bit out of touch this week on all social network platforms as I found myself buried under about 100 assignments to grade (NOT hyperbole!) along with a guest blog post to write AND my first-ever seminar presentation!

More Recipes for People Who Hate Recipes

I wasn't sure how helpful yesterday's post would be, but it looks like it was a hit! I'm so glad to see that I can help others who are similarly commitment-phobic in the kitchen. Did I mention that I'm terrible at baking? Just being honest, here. That said, sometimes I have good days. The benevolent … Continue reading More Recipes for People Who Hate Recipes

Recipes for Other People Who Hate Recipes

When I was 17, my parents thought I might starve or live off of Eggo waffles for the duration of college. I tried to cook a pork chop that year, and ended up with a creole hockey puck. I'm no chef!

Know Your Clients–Inside and Out! Lesson #2 from Nutrition for Sports, Exercise & Weight Management with Nancy Clark, MS RD CSSD and Dr. John Ivy, Professor Emeritus

She sits across from you, exhales deeply, and slumps forward with a frown. "Are you feeling okay?" you ask. "You're looking a bit fat, today." Wait...what? That's terrible, right? … Continue reading “Fat is Not a Feeling”: Lesson #1 from Nutrition for Sports, Exercise & Weight Management with Nancy Clark, MS RD CSSD and Dr. John Ivy, Professor Emeritus
