Eating The Week aims to tackle (but carefully, while wearing knee pads) a food or nutrition topic every week. For each theme, I will try to feature 5-7 related recipes and review other information (books, articles, etc) on the topic. Readers are invited along as I search for fantastic recipes, ponder nutritional science, and write about successes and bork-ups.

Eating The Week is brought to you by the letters Kat. In real life, I’m someone’s mom, someone else’s wife, and many people’s freelance employee (LinkedIn profile). If all goes as planned – I just got accepted to an MS/RD program – I’m heading for a career change and will become a registered dietitian in a few years. ¬†When it comes to nutritional science, I don’t even have my training wheels on yet; but I’m hoping to use this blog as a way to research and learn, and would *love* input from wiser folks along the way.

Calories-per-serving estimates are primarily based on data from the LoseIt app. I’m not running these things through a bomb calorimeter (yet), so they are only approximations and will obviously vary a bit depending on how you tweak the recipes.


  1. Thanks for your interest in guest posting Kat! I will definitely be emailing you!

  2. Erin, I’m looking forward to it, thanks!

    Hey Kat — just stopped by to take a look and noticed you are pursuing your MS/RD. That is fantastic. I run the DI program at a hospital in Boston – love, love, love working with my interns. Feel free to get in touch if you need advice or support. The internship can be a hell-ish time, despite our best efforts :) Good luck!

      Thanks, Julie! I’m on the fence, frankly, about pursuing the RD along with the MS – my interests now tend toward public policy & broad nutrition education initiatives, for which I think my MPH plus the MS & other experience would probably suffice. But if I do go the internship & licensed practice route, I’ll take you up on your offer of advice!
