We share our knowledge as we step into our golden years aiming to be our best. As women, we face new challenges and changes within us. We move forward wanting to be healthy as we face what lies ahead, but we often wish we knew more.
On the horizon
In 2023 we will be publishing a book on women’s health. In the book we furnish women with essential information to carry them into their next years so that they may live their best lives – fit, healthy, and well!
We share our combined 55 years of experience in foods, nutrition, and dietetics. We apply our knowledge from our training, clinical practice, academia and personal experiences to offer lifestyle strategies that work.
The book has been reviewed and is now in its editing stages. Stay tuned.
To spread evidence-based nutrition information so that women can have a healthier life.
This site provides reliable science-based articles to be helpful for its readers. Two registered dietitian nutritionists write all the content with a combined 55 years of experience.
We are two nutrition specialists, one who has practiced in the clinical field and the other in the academic area. We both have experience planning healthy meals and snacks for patients, so they could successfully manage various nutrition-related diseases.
To maintain our status to hold the registered dietitian title, we must meet the standards of the Commission on Dietetic Registration, (CDR), the credentialing agency for registered dietitians. To do so, we must obtain at least 75 hours of continuing education every five years.
To become dietitians, we earned a bachelor’s degree that included a didactic program in dietetics, completed a dietetic internship, and passed a standardized examination.
In addition, Stephanie holds a master’s degree in nutrition from Lamar University. Grace has a certification in diabetes care and education from the certification board for diabetes care and education specialists, CBDCE.
We write all the material together and use references from peer-reviewed research articles or credible websites for supporting data. Anything we learn from experience is clearly noted in the wellness blog.
