Hello and welcome! Allow me to introduce myself properly. I’m Amber or “RD amber” as I’m known in the twittersphere.

I’m a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist passionate about food, nutrition science and agriculture.  I work as a Nutrition & Agriculture Communications Consultant and adjunct instructor. When I grow up, I’d like to be a photographer or maybe a backup dancer.

bamberCouchI’m married to Ben, a startup entrepreneur and I’m doggy momma to Jacques and our new puppy, Rigo. I’m the girl that laughs loudest in the theater and I hate elevators, escalators, and revolving doors. We live in Nebraska, known as the flyover state silicon prairie/ freaking Ag capitol of the world.

Those who know me best would say that I like to stir the pot. I’m sassy, sarcastic and my nutrition views are based on science, not popular hype. My friends call me a “realistic nutritionist” because I don’t quite the fit the mold of the perfect dietitian. But I love good food, Nebraska Ag, creating cool things and I’m passionate about building community.

I wanted to be able to share my playlist of recipes with my family and friends. I also wanted to share the stories of farmers and ranchers through recipes. Thus Stirlist was born as a creative outlet for me to share what I’m stirring up in the kitchen, classroom and on the farm.

Are you ready to stir things up with me? Let’s do this!
