Hi everyone! Welcome to Walder Wellness – I’m so happy you stopped by! I’m Carrie, and I’m a Dietetic Intern at The Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City and a Master’s student at New York University where I study Clinical Nutrition & Dietetics. I’m working towards becoming a Registered Dietitian to help clarify the misinformation on nutrition, to promote healthy lifestyle change, and to help others foster positive relationships with food. Everyday we are bombarded with unnecessarily complicated diet advice, and it is my mission to simplify what eating healthy means and to get back to basics. On this blog you’ll find recipe ideas and everyday meal inspiration to help you easily incorporate more whole foods into your lifestyle. I’ll provide healthy eating tips and tricks, discuss current nutrition topics, introduce you to new foods, and share my essentials to living a healthy, balanced life.
If you’ve been following along on my Instagram account, you know that I like to use simple ingredients in creative ways to make healthy eating accessible and delicious. Eating healthy can be overwhelming at first, but that’s a mindset I hope to change! Trust me – I know first hand what it’s like to be confused and clueless in the kitchen. A few years ago, I could barely cook more than pasta and eggs, and I paid very little regard to what I was putting into my body. As a result, I constantly struggled with digestive issues and a lack of energy, but it was a battle with severe (and sudden) acne that proved to be my catalyst for a lifestyle change. Since then, I’ve spent countless hours teaching myself how to cook healthfully, experimenting with new foods, and have found my passion in inspiring others to do the same – so much so that I packed up my life in Vancouver, Canada, moved to New York City, and went back to school to study the field of nutrition.
My recipes are meant to inspire you, and are easily modified based on what you have on hand or what is in season. Nothing here is too complicated, and these meals are meant to fit in with a busy lifestyle. Cooking with beautiful, whole foods has become a creative outlet for me, and I hope that you enjoy making these recipes as much as I enjoy sharing them with you. I’m so excited to have you join me on this journey towards wellness and better health!
