  1. i think you should take lettuce and cucumbers then add bacon and eggs topped with bacon bits and fried cheese curds and call it, “Alternative to a healthy salad”.

  2. Hi Melanie,

  3. Hi!! Finally got the chance to check out your blog and I LOVE it! You’re so cute and your voice definitely shines through. Can’t wait to read more 🙂 so great meeting you today!

    • Jamie! I hope you had safe travels back home. Enjoy your last few days at work and your wonderful trip to GREECE! Oh my goodness I am so excited for you. I’m so glad we met, and I look forward to continuing to keep in touch and meet up again in the future!

  4. Hi, I am so happy I found your blog. One, because it’s so nice to find another MN blogger! And two, because I can relate to so many of the things you just said.
    My dad has UC and I definitely remember the fear we all had when he was getting diagnosed. He went undiagnosed for about 3 months, and lost probably 40 pounds in that time. In case you’re wondering what that looked like, he was about 130 on a 6’1 frame. Not good.
    He definitely chooses different foods than I do, and we always joke around that if I got UC I would be in trouble because like you said, one of the recommended diets is extremely low in fiber. The diet works well for him and he has reduced his number of flare ups. But I am so interested to learn how you handle the conditions!
    I’m a senior in high school, so I’m very young in the blogging world. However, I am passionate about healthy living and interested in so many blogs like yours because I have also considered becoming a RD. I love getting a little peak at what the job is like through these blogs and I look forward to reading more from you, Melanie!

    • Nice to meet you Abby! I always love finding fellow MN bloggers as well! I am happy to hear your dad is doing better now with the UC. I found that when I was on the low fiber diet, I actually felt worse. I feel best when I load on the veggies and fruits and whole foods, but what’s interesting about this disease is everyone reacts differently and needs are different person to person. Low fiber is what works for your dad and that’s great as long as he feels well!
      I am so impressed that you have found such a passion for healthy living at such a young age. If you have any questions about being an RD, feel free to ask. Thanks for reading, sweetheart and Happy Holidays!!
