Farewell for Now

After three wonderful years of blogging I think it is time to say my farewell to "Cooking In College".

I have enjoyed the blogging world more than I ever would have imagined, but with the impending start of my dietetic internship at the University of Arizona Medical Center I know where my focus will be: studying, reading, and learning so I can take the absolute best care of my patients during my clinical rotation. Then I will move onto food service management where I know I will be busy learning about procurement, production, and pricing in a very large cafeteria-like establishment at the hospital. Community will begin after that and I will gain invaluable experience observing and practicing outpatient nutrition services in a wide variety of settings like an eating disorder clinic, dialysis unit, cancer treatment center, a school district, diabetes clinic for children, and WIC. All of this while getting to explore a brand new city: Tucson, AZ! It is going to be a fantastic year, but also one that will require (and deserves) more than 100% of my time.

I could not be more excited for this new chapter in my life to begin; where I get to spend everyday pursuing my passion of helping people lead healthier lives through nutrition. However, as I have graduated from college it seems only appropriate to also graduate, in a sense, from my blog.

Thank you to all of those who have helped me along the way. I definitely see another blog in my future, as cooking healthy and cost-efficient meals while sharing my knowledge of nutrition will always be a part of my life. So check back in about 1 year, I'll be a Registered Dietitian by then!

Road Trip Day 18: Drive to Greeley, CO

Sleeping in a tent lends itself very well to getting up early so we started today at 7am, had breakfast at Subway, and hit the road around 8:30am.

When we woke up early on our last day in Portland we were both incredibly sad. We slowly packed our car, checked out of our exceptional hotel room, and met up with my brother for one last meal together.
