Hi there! I’m Sunithi, AKA Sue, a registered dietitian with a sweet tooth and a passion for eating healthy (quite a combo), currently working as a Community Nutritionist in Washington DC. I’m also a blogger, health nut, digital scrapbooker, nutrition geek and food connoisseur. I love to revamp recipes and add some ‘Nutrition Bytes’ to them, and my poor family are the guinea pigs for all my ‘nutri-inventions’ and crazy concoctions. I also love listening to music and can get very crabby when my Ipod is out of charge.
I am wife to a music geek (Samson), who has a fabulous voice and is the best person for me! Together we are a great example of how two opposites can live in harmony. Let me give you an example. In our first year of marriage I would sit next to my sport-loving man and try to follow along. 15 years later I still sit next to him during game time but I am on my laptop, social networking while he is cheering for the Redskins. How’s that for harmony!? On a more serious note, he is the practical one and I am the dreamer, but between us my kids have a healthy balance. My greatest brag about him is that he has always let me be myself without trying to change me.
I am also mom to my two beautiful girls Rebecca (13) and Sarah (8) and they are my greatest accomplishments. I always wondered what I was doing having my kids five years apart, and now I know: while one is in the hugging, kissy stage the other is in the talking, sometimes trying teen stage and I’m a lucky mom to get to enjoy both. Hanging with my girls is one of my favorite things to do!
My Blog : I started this blog a few months back as an attempt to nurture the inner geek in me. I wanted to do something different for myself apart from just being a working mamma and wife. As we get older, keeping healthy, staying fit and having oodles of energy to keep up with life is not easy. I am still learning from others and my own life experiences, and wanted to share my thoughts and some Nutrition Bytes that I have picked up along the way. If you want practical tips on eating healthily without depriving yourself of the finer foods in life, this is the place for you. My family keeps me firmly grounded in that they are my greatest and fondest critics. They reject anything that is not practical or too ‘nutritiony’, so my suggestions have been tried and tested.
Bragging Rights – I am the Queen of Smoothies and even my kids say I make the best smoothies! Oh, I can also speak six different languages fluently and read & write in four.
