About Me/Credentials

Welcome ! ! 

My name is Marci Butterfield and I am a 30 year old, Registered Dietitian who LOVES Food.  I have always had a HUGE sweet tooth- which can get me into trouble at times but has also made me realize that I can still enjoy the sweets of life in moderation if do other things to create a healthy lifestyle. 

I have always loved learning about nutrition, cooking, baking, and really anything that has to do with food. I Love to try new recipes and see if there are ways that I can make the traditional a little bit healthier.  The Mr. is my official 'taste-tester' and I don't hear too many complaints. 

I really enjoy working out I am driven by competition and trying to be the best me I have ever been. I have done a few Half-marathons and hope to one day do a full marathon. I hope to be able to share some of my knowledge and ideas both in working out and eating healthy! 

I hope you take the Mission to get yourself healthier than you have ever been.

  • I studied nutrition at Utah State University-- receiving my Bachelors of Science in Nutrition.
  • After receiving my Bachelors degree I did a dietetic internship in Boston working at hospitals and community health clinics around the Greater Boston area.

  • I earned a Masters of Science in Nutrition and Health Promotion from Simmons College in Boston, MA. 
  • Worked as a Clinical Dietitian at Mesa View Regional Medical Center in Mesquite, Nevada.

I am currently living in Louisville, Kentucky and have a spunky, smiley, and very busy 1 year old boy.  I spend all day with him which so currently I am not working full time as a Dietitian but I still want to be able to help you become your best you!  This blog is my way for me to stay up to date in all things Nutrition, Cooking, and Health and to help you along the way! I know we can all be a little healthier!  Happy Reading.
