Thanks for stopping by! I am Rebecca, the person behind the scenes at Nourish Nutrition Co. I believe that food is meant to be simple and nourishing. And that you can nourish yourself with delicious food (and no diet culture) while cooking for one.
If you're someone who is cooking for yourself, and wants easy throw-together meals, quick prep ahead meals, and dinners that can be repurposed into other dishes, this is the place for you!

What's in it for you?
I feel ya, it's hard to want to cook when it's for one but let me tell you, cooking can be a great way to decompress after a tough day, have some quiet time, save money, AND you can do all this without having to eat the same dish for 5 days straight.
Besides, life’s stressful as it is, cooking and eating don't need to add to that stress, let me help you not add to that stress. We all deserve to enjoy life without restrictions. I’m here to help you navigate through eating and cooking, we got this!
As a registered dietitian with a masters degree in health coaching and exercise science, who follows a non-diet approach, I'm uniquely qualified to walk with and support you as you find ways to rediscover the joy of cooking, and find ways to enhance your wellbeing and make the most out of your life. All without feeling guilty, shameful, or overwhelmed.
I work with people who want support rejecting the lies our society has taught us about food and our bodies, I also work with people recovering from eating disorders and disordered eating patterns.
What will I find on Nourish Nutrition?

Why you won't find nutrition information on the recipes
I know many people are in search of nutrition information for recipes online. I get emails and comments about it. But I won't be providing any nutrition information on Nourish Nutrition, even though Google really likes it.
Here's a few things about nutrition information:
- Calorie needs vary by person and day. Eating based on calorie allowances can leave you undernourished really easily
- Nutrition information isn't really all that accurate.
- Our bodies are really smart and, when we can learn to listen to them, we get a good idea about what our bodies need to be nourished.
- Seeing calorie information online can be harmful for people recovering from eating disorders and disordered eating. I'd rather not worsen an already difficult process.
- Counting calories and worrying about what you're putting into your body is time consuming, takes a lot of mental space, and well, there's better things we can be thinking and worrying about.
- Working through these concerns with a non-diet dietitian can be very helpful, and may be covered by medical insurance. Fill out this form if you're interested in working with me or want more info.
A bit more about me
- Food..... pretty much all of it
- Farmers markets
- Traveling, this is the only type of bucket list- a travel one (next up: Iceland and Greece)
- Dancing- whether it be in an exercise class, in front of my mirror, in the shower, in my car, or while walking down the street; it's all necessary for a happy life
- Getting outside, whether it's hiking in the beautiful and close! Utah mountains, or up the asphalt road behind my house, kayaking around a lake or down a river, or walking to the bus stop in a snow storm. The outdoors are magical, and tend to be my best medicine.
- Scandinavian design, omg so much
- More recently a container house. I want one SOOOOOO bad
Not so much loved:
- Hard boiled eggs. barf
- Downhill skiing, although it's a crime living in Salt Lake and not liking skiing
- Camping in a tent for >1 night
- Canned tuna. One time while on a study abroad, I was served a tuna casserole with hard boiled eggs. The thought of that meal still makes me queasy 6 years later.
