The face behind Wicked Nutritious

Hey there!

I’ve been wanting to do a quick post about myself and how I got here! Also, since I’m turning 30 in a month and having an existential crisis, this is a great time to reflect.

My name’s Michelle and I was born and raised in New Hampshire; currently living in Boston, MA. I’m a Registered Dietitian by trade. You can find out a little more about my education here.

I am an only child. I have one furchild. His name is Bruno. And he is quite literally the center of my world.

I work for the Department of Public Health as a Healthcare Facility Specialist (oooooooh!). I won’t bore you with the details.

I started this blog with the sole intention of spreading information, sharing recipes I make (while using it as a cookbook for myself ha!), and to also have some sort of creative outlet. I’d like to think that I’m naturally a creative person. I’ve always been drawn to things like drawing, writing, and other forms of self expression. I’ve kind of lost touch with that over the years.

Sometimes it’s hard to find that when we are all constantly on the go, but this blog gives me a space to explore my creativity a bit.

I’ve traveled quite extensively over the years and had planned to backpack Europe at the beginning of April. That was quickly shut down by the coronavirus. So those plans are still “in the works”.

I’m pretty introverted. My father is an extreme extrovert and my mother is like a hermit. I fell somewhere in the middle there, but prefer my alone time. Stay away from me.

My parents are my best friends. Comes with the territory of being an only child, I guess. But, I wouldn’t have it any other way. They are two of the funniest people I’ve ever been blessed with.

I couldn’t live without my nespresso machine. It would be a top item that I’d bring on a deserted island….. with absolutely no way to plug it in??

I’m obsessed with true crime. A little too much. I now think there’s someone out to murder me whenever I’m alone. “Stay weird, stay rude, stay safe”. If you know, you know.

I can tell you that I overthink everything…. currently overthinking this post.

I always having a million and one ideas running through my mind at a time. My poor parents… I think they gave up trying to change my mind on anything…

This pretty much goes without saying. Although I’ve never been formally diagnosed, I’ve struggled with anxiety and panic disorder for the last 5 years. Those of you who can relate know that it can be crippling. BUT because of that, I’m primarily going to use this blog as a way to document my experiences and my personal ways to help overcome some of that anxiety with nutritional interventions.

I believe there is a strong mind/gut connection to mental illness. I will be sharing a lot of content on my perspective and approach to anxiety and its correlation to what we put in our bodies. I’m hoping others can also gain some insight into their own mental well-being.

Alright, enough of my babbling. This post was a little all over the place, but I look forward to sharing some helpful information! Feel free to ask me anything your heart desires.
