Hey, friend! Thanks for stopping by.

My name is Katrina Detter, and I am a Registered Dietitian in the foothills of North Carolina. I graduated with my Bachelor’s of Science degree in Nutrition and Dietetics from Loma Linda University in Southern California. Ultimately, my goal is to inspire you to live a better life with food freedom + gentle nutrition + body respect.

I love everything food and fitness related. Being a recreational runner, Dance Fitness Instructor, and weight lifter, I love finding fun ways to stay active. I also love recipe development and hope to create and publish my own cookbook someday.

When I was a young girl, I found my passion for nutrition having struggled with a poor relationship with food & body image issues–you can read about my story here .

As a teenager, I tried several fad diets and trends to help overcome my body image issues…I wanted so terribly to be like everybody else my age–thin and cute! It was not until I found mindful & intuitive eating that I became happy with food + body + self, and I want to share that with all of you! It is so important to take care of your body for multiple reasons–not just to look good. Body image is a tough thing, and I still struggle with it some today…but growth is my motto- progress over perfection, hunny! I now switch my negative thoughts into positive mindsets through mindful & intuitive eating. I want to share all things food freedom + gentle nutrition + body respect with you to create well-rounded lifestyles. Most importantly, I think a vital part of living your best life is having a healthy relationship with food. On this website, you will find lots of ways to finally say “buh-bye” to diet culture!

I love spending time with my wonderful husband and our kitties-Tikki & Garbanzo (Banzo for short). In our spare time, we love to go on hikes, try new restaurants, garden and watch movies.

My blogs are based on my views through my own personal experiences, research and professional education. It is important to know that the nutrition field is very controversial and many of us view differently on topics, but I encourage you all to keep an open mind while reading articles and literature–and always look for reputable sources. I am a registered dietitian because I have a passion for nutrition & self care, and I want to inspire you.
