My name is Tori Kaleycik, and I will be your source for all things Nutrition this semester! I am a sophomore Nutrition and Dietetics major, and I am passionate about making this world a healthier place. I grew up choosing fruits over desserts and reading Nutrition Facts labels. Don’t get me wrong, I love ice cream, cookies and candy as much as the next girl. However, I started learning about the benefits of a nutritious diet early on and have since pursued a balanced diet. I have always known that a career in Dietetics is one of my purposes in life because I love food, I love helping people and I love this beautiful world. In the future, I plan to become a Nutrition Education teacher who travels to schools nationwide and educates youth on the importance AND fun of nutrition. Nutrition is more than “eating your apple a day to keep the doctor away”; it is a lifestyle that has the power to transform your mind, body and spirit, if you let it. I hope you will follow me on this journey as I share current trends, myths vs. facts and important nutrition topics in my Nuts about Nutrition column!
