I am a Registered Dietitian, and blogging here is my full-time job. I live in Charlottesville, Virginia with my husband, Thomas, sons Mazen and Birch and dog Gus! For all things motherhood, check out my Baby section and my former baby blog, Baby KERF, which I wrote during my pregnancy and until Mazen turned 2. I love all there is to do in Charlottesville – check out my Cville page for recaps of local restaurant and activities.
I started blogging in March of 2006 at Calorie King as I set out to lose 30 pounds. A year and a half later, at the request of family and friends, I decided to start a photo blog of my recipes and meals. I began blogging at Blogspot in September 2007, which then moved to WordPress, and finally to my own domain, KathEats.com. After working in public relations for a few years, I went back to school to become a Registered Dietitian in 2008.
For five years, I blogged three times a day: breakfast, lunch and dinner. You can see highlights of years of blogging this page. In addition to food, recipes and life recaps, I have pages on oatmeal, blogger events, travel across the world, races, home organization, photography, blogging and groceries.
After Mazen was born, I slipped back to blogging once a day, and then in January 2013 I switched my format from diary style to topics with slices of life here and there. These days it seems I’m coming full circle! Read some of my nutrition-focused posts on this page. You can subscribe to KERF here – I hope you’ll stick around!
Soccer, Survivor (yes that show is still on!), country music, the beach, cocktail hour
Onions, cloudy days, violent movies, being cold, clutter
If you’re a company or brand seeking partnerships: I’m open to all kinds of creative ideas. Shoot me an email and let’s chat. Please see my Brands page for more information.
I am not accepting guest posts at this time except from dietitians. And pretty pretty please do not add me to your press release list.
