About

Hi and Welcome to my page! My nIMG_2704ame is Shelby and I am a Private Trainer and Licensed Dietitian in Boston! This blog was originally started as a way for me to chronicle my experience with the trending diet known as the “paleo” diet. An avid cross fitter, I couldn’t not give the famous diet known around the cross fit community a try. However, I found myself lacking the energy I needed for workouts and runs and hence it became “paleo with a twist!” Even though my journey with paleo was short and sweet, I decided to keep the blog going as a way to connect with the foodie world. As an RD, it is also a source of information about health, my obsession with food and fitness, as well as my life here in Boston. I am passionate about nutrition, hence why I decided to make a career out of it, and because I am dedicated to living a healthy and fit lifestyle, I figured why not share evidence based knowledge with the rest of you?! Of course, because I am new to the Boston area, and love food +exploring, I decided to also make this blog fun about my life in Southie and the wonderful things and events I encounter in bean town 🙂 Hope you enjoy!
