Hi everyone, I’m Lindsay! I completed my Bachelors of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics at Texas State University in San Marcos. During my time at Texas State, I was able to participate in a wide variety of nutrition related activities such as tutoring students in Nutrition Sciences, conduct research and write a review paper on PhIPs impact on cancer, and work in food service at a retirement home.
After I graduated, I attended Teachers College Columbia University in New York in order to obtain my Masters of Science in Nutrition and Exercise Physiology. Through this program I was able to explore my passion for sports nutrition by counseling individually and providing nutrition education sessions for division 1 athletes at St. Francis College in Brooklyn, NY. Currently I am doing my dietetic internship through Teachers College! Once completed I will be sitting down for my RD exam and on to my first real job as a registered dietitian.
I am so passionate about sports, which is why I have gone into the sports nutrition world. My blog is going to be focused around sports nutrition providing you insight on different supplements, current research, how to fuel yourself properly, and other tips and tricks to improve your sports performance! You can be an elite athlete, just your average person playing a pick up sport, or even someone interested in sports to enjoy my blog. Breakaway Nutrition is here to provide everyone with scientific based information no matter what level you are or are not at!
