ABOUT /

Hi there!  Thanks for stopping by Fresh Fit Flourish.  Let’s get to know each other!

 

St Paul, MN Registered Dietitian

 

I'm Bri, a Registered Dietitian based in St Paul, MN.  Most days you can find me cooking up a storm in my kitchen, zenning  out on my yoga mat, or cuddling with my corgi, Winston (pictured above). I'm known for having a balanced, real, and fresh approach to food and nutrition. My philosophy does not revolve around diets, restriction, or calorie counting, but rather on an all foods fit mentality. I recommend an eating pattern than contains protein, fat, and carbs in all forms, including lots of plants (hi, veggies!) and ice cream. I believe food should allow you to live your best life, and not make you miserable or stressed.

 

I love serving the world by translating complicated nutritional science into simple, everyday life habits. The things I am most passionate about are teaching others it is possible to be healthy while enjoying the foods and activities they love, and showing them that nutritious food doesn't have to be tasteless and boring. When I am not busy using my dietitian super powers, you can find me writing about them here on my blog or elsewhere (like here, here and here).

 

Fresh Fit Flourish is my platform to inspire health, wellness and balance so that you can live your best nourished life.  Here's what you can expect to find here:

 

  • Recipes of ALL kinds, from vegan dishes to green smoothies to granola to sandwiches.
  • Inspiring, evidence-based and realistic nutrition blog posts on a variety of topics.
  • A look into my lifestyle and daily eating habits to give you real-life ideas.

 

The Fresh Fit Flourish Philosophy 

 

Fresh, because our bodies and minds function best when we give them a fresh dose of what they need (sometimes that's kale, sometimes that's cookies).

 

Fit, because movement is essential for overall health and vibrancy.

 

Flourish, because a balanced lifestyle with plenty of nourishing foods, movement, rest and self-care is exactly what you need to thrive and flourish through all of life's adventures.
