Hi, I’m Emily. Thanks for checking out happyaspie!

My love affair with honest to goodness, real food has been lifelong. At three years old I was standing on a stool at the kitchen counter cooking with my dad, pretending we were on our own cooking show. My strongest memories all include food and food is usually how I remember a moment, an event or a place I have traveled to.

I am now 25 years old and living in the Boston area. I work full-time and plan to pursue a graduate degree in nutrition. I hope to someday be a registered dietician. I have always had a healthy relationship with food but it has only gotten better over the last few years. I have become more educated about healthy eating and, most importantly, more in tune with what my body craves and needs to feel vibrant and strong.

I am not an expert in healthful living but I like to think that I’ve figured out some pretty great ways to feel happy and healthy. Happyaspie is my chance to share my ways of healthy living with others in the hope that you’ll find ways to feel the same! I hope you’ll be back to read some more!

  4. Hey Emily,
    Found your blog thanks to your image of Country Choice Organic Steel Cut Oatmeal (a favorite of mine). Good choice.
    I wondered if you had heard of the Just Label It campaign (http://justlabelit.org), which is a petition to tell the FDA that we people who love food want genetically modified/genetically engineered (GMO) foods labeled as such.

    For an example of how bad it’s gotten:
    – Over 80% of packaged products on American grocery store shelves contain GMO ingredients (from Cheerios to Kashi to Nature Valley to Skippy Peanut Butter)
    – In Europe, where GMO labeling is mandatory, that number is 5%.

    Anyone who cares about food should be concerned that this has yet to happen. Please check out the site.
    Take care.

  5. I really like your writing style, superb info , appreciate it for posting : D.
