The Everything Healthy College Cookbook!


The Everything Healthy College Cookbook is now available!

Dear Reader,

Throughout my experience as a registered dietitian, certified in adult weight management and owner of Delicious Living Nutrition, I have discovered there is a strong need for nutritional guidance, especially among the student population. College life brings challenges: between class schedules, independent meals, and having a social life, it can be difficult to think of eating for energy. After seeing many of my teenaged patients getting ready to head off to college within the next year and seeing their parents’ look of fright, it was clear there should be more simple tools to give students about surviving, from a nutritional standpoint, while at college.

Looking back on my college days at the University of Massachusetts in
Amherst, I wish there had been more guidance around nutrition for me and my friends to follow. I remember trying many new fad diets we heard about instead of learning more about basic nutrition. I now know I would have felt better, had more energy, my weight wouldn’t have fluctuated, and my studying would have been improved if I had just learned to eat healthy. Basically your typical should-have, could-have, would-have scenario!

My hope for this book is that it will give you an abundance of ideas for
what to eat that is delicious, easy to make, and gives you the energy you need. As you read through the recipes, you’ll be able to understand small changes you can apply everyday that will improve your college experience.

Yours in good health,
Nicole Cormier, RD, LDN
