A Reliable Nutrition Blog

Posted by Jenna Smith -

Do you ever feel like you have so much to do and not enough time to do it? Go to work. Pick up the kids from school. Take Suzie to piano lessons. Take Jimmy to soccer practice. Feed the dog. Walk the dog. Throw in a load of laundry before picking up the kids and ... (breathe) oh yeah, find something for supper! It's a busy world. And that's exactly why I wanted to create this blog; to help people put healthy, affordable food on the table without having to follow a 20 step recipe to do it.

Let me introduce myself: My name is Jenna Hogan and I am a University of Illinois Extension Educator in Nutrition and Wellness. I am also a registered dietitian with a passion for helping people begin and maintain a healthy lifestyle. I work at the McLean County Extension office serving McLean, Woodford, and Livingston counties. I teach a variety of nutrition and wellness programs including topics on food safety, food buying, and disease management and prevention.

I'm sure at some point you have scoured the internet for nutrition information just as I have. Did you ever wonder if any of it was based on fact? University of Illinois Extension strives at providing research based, unbiased educational information to the public so you can feel comfortable knowing that the information I give on this blog is not something out of thin air! Of course, I'll give my tips and secrets, but most importantly we'll have fun along the way.

I've heard many people tell me time and time again that they wish that they could take me home with them to help them prepare and serve healthy meals. Well, here I am. I am in your kitchen helping you make simple, nutritious, quick and delicious meals for you and your family. (No need to get out the fine china). Stay tuned for some great information and advice. I hope to hear from you!
