My name is Jamie Shifley. I am a registered and licensed dietitian nutritionist. I am the mother of 5 great kids–three girls and two boys. I am married to a loving and witty husband. We live in the burbs of Chicago. Inspiring people to live healthier, more full lives drives me. I strive to teach people how to plan and make simple, tasty, and mostly healthy meals. At the same time, life is short and can be hard, so I am a believer in moderation and relishing life. We are by no means perfect. We struggle with the ups-and-downs that come along with raising 5 kids. We are faithful and hardworking. I seek to share my nutritional and health expertise, in the hopes that you might find even an inkling of benefit, while laughing/crying through the struggles and celebrating the joys that come with kids, marriage, and motherhood.
