My name is McKayla Braender, I’m excited to announce I will be joining the incredible women at Dietitians of Palm
Valley (DOPV) as an Intern Nutrition Content Contributor. I’ll be popping in three times a month to share lots of fun
nutrition. First, I’d like to start by sharing a little about myself. I am 22 years-old and a Junior in the Food and
Nutrition program at Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina. I’ve lived all over the east coast
from the coast of New Hampshire to the east coast of Florida, but have mostly grown up in Jacksonville, Florida. I started my college career at Florida State College at Jacksonville before transferring into an amazing university in the mountains. I love to spend my time hiking, strolling through the Saturday morning farmers markets, spending time in the kitchen, working out, instagramming about delicious and healthy food or studying at a local coffee shop.
I was home in Jacksonville this past summer and spent the month of June working with DOPV and am happy to say, I get to continue doing so by sharing lots of fun facts with you all here! I’ll be covering some exciting details from the nutrition community from healthy ways to snack, nutritional facts on some of our RD-approved foods, college life and how to manage nutrition with a crazy and hectic schedule. Lastly, I’ll be here to help you celebrate your favorite food holiday guilt free with fun, yet healthy recipes.
