Welcome!  I’m Michelle; thanks for swinging by my site.  I chose the name poweRD by peanut butter because…well…it’s true!  If we’re being 100% factual, powered by almond butter is probably a more accurate reflection of my lifestyle, but I love alliteration so creative license was necessary.  The RD is not a typo, but rather a nod to my future career.  I am currently starting my journey to become a Registered Dietitian (RD!).

I graduated with my bachelors degree in Government and Hispanic Studies in May 2014.  By about June or July I knew I did not want to work in government/politics (oops!).  I took a step back to think about what I really love and how I can make my passion my paycheck.  Once I realized that my free time is spent cooking, reading food blogs, looking up recipes, and devouring articles and books on health and nutrition, I decided the path to RD is the path for me.

If you asked me on graduation day if I wanted to go back to school my answer would have been that I was avoiding it at all costs.  Now here I am in the thick of my graduate program.  Funny how things change…

I hope you’ll join me on this journey learning about nutrition, cooking, health, and life!  And of course, there will be snacks!
