My name is Serena Hunt and I am a registered dietitian (RD) & certified dietitian nutritionist (CDN) with a commitment to educating others based on scientifically backed nutrition research effective for long term fat loss & robust health. Having received my Bachelors of Science in Nutritional Sciences at Cornell University and completed my dietetic internship at Yale New Haven Hospital, I possess not only the education but practical experience to optimize health. I currently work as a clinical dietitian for acutely ill patients as well as in private practice counseling clients as an outpatient dietitian. My nutrition philosophy is simple and concise; eat often & choose mostly nonstarchy vegetables, proteins, and natural fats. An extremely enthusiastic & motivational educator, my blog, Born To Do This Nutrition, Twitter handle, & Facebook page are wonderful resources for anyone looking to improve their diet & overall health.

What I Ate Wednesday is a weekly feature where I link up with other foodie-enthusiast bloggers via the blog, Peas & Crayons:

This month’s theme is “going green” for Saint Patty’s Day! Which is easy for me, because I LOVE me some green veggies! Spinach, kale, broccoli, peppers, cucumbers, zucchini, the list is endless!

For breakfast I started my day with some fresh melon and chocolatey cottage cheese: chocolate whey protein powder, peanut butter, nonfat cottage cheese, and cinnamon. Plus a tall glass of black coffee. For such a sweet breakfast, I am proud to report my breakfast was super low in sugar & super chock-full-of energy!

Between breakfast & lunch, I munched on (non-pictured) raw carrots & celery. Its super important to munch on nonstarchy veggies between breakfast & lunch if you skipped out on nonstarchies at breakfast! Plus, celery is green, which is super trendy this month (well, according to Peas & Crayons!).

For lunch, I had a cup of hot tea and a cobb salad sans dressing . My salad was simple, but super filling since it was jam packed with protein! Grilled chicken, hard boiled eggs, tomatoes, olives, carrots, & spinach. Nom nom nom!

Before going to the gym, I made a delicious GREEN smoothie of kale, coconut almond milk, vanilla whey protein powder, plain organic Greek yogurt, and ice cubes. I know green smoothies freak a lot of people out, but I promise you cannot taste the green veggie at all, just the sweet deliciousness of vanilla & coconut!! Garnished with a strawberry, this was like a little taste of summer!

Dinner was divineee and green- all of my favorite adjectives in one! The recipe will be featured on my blog soon (and, guess what, it’s quick & easy!!!) requiring minimal cooking skill & ingredients. Anyway, my balsamic stuffed chicken with balsamic glazed spinach involved chicken breast, balsamic glaze, whole milk mozzarella & copious amounts of spinach! Lots of protein, healthy fats & fiber to keep you full, while keeping your metabolism stoked high and mighty!

I finished off my day with another sweet, but low sugar treat (noticing a trend here?), cocoa pudding. This pudding is made with non-fat ricotta cheese, cocoa powder, pre-melted unsweetened chocolate, two packets of Stevia, & chia seeds. Its only imperfection was that it wasn’t green!

That’s it for What I Ate Wednesday this week! Feel free to link up your own blog using the link above! And remember, whether you’re Irish or not, get your greens on this month!

      She is a friend of my son, Matt and his fiancee Phoebe and he put is together because we are so on the same page nutritionally! I love her approach and she’ll definitely be guest blogging again.

    Thanks Ann and Marianne! I never thought of myself as no-nonsense before 🙂 I feel so intense!!! I love it! Looking forward to many more guest posts in the future, Ann!

  3. Some great ideas here – never thought about putting my Chocolate whey protein in cottage cheese! I think I might be trying some of that this week for my family.
