Hi! I’m Amanda, the newest member of the team at Creating Peace with Food. I am looking forward to working with this great team of RDs in supporting others in the Pacific North West in their efforts to nourish themselves and reach their health potential.
I’ve always been fascinated by the science of nutrition and psychology, and in college I learned how much I enjoy nutrition counseling as well. The philosophies at Creating Peace with Food really hit home for me. A lot of my past experience has been with corporate wellness programs, where I have witnessed the guilt that many people carry with them around food. My passion is helping my clients break free of that guilt and joining them on the journey towards building a healthy relationship with food to complement their lifestyle.
I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Applied Nutrition with a minor in Psychology from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, on the beautiful central coast of California, where I also competed my Dietetic Internship. I’m a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist with the Commission on Dietetic Registration and a Certified Dietitian in the state of Washington.
Outside of the office, I love to cook, stay active, and spend time with friends. I enjoy volleyball and a good vinyasa or restorative yoga class. Pretty much any time of year, you can find me in the mountains- snowboarding in the winter or hiking and rock climbing in the summer. Bell peppers are one of my favorite foods, I could probably eat them with almost every meal: in an egg sandwich with arugula, stuffed with meat and rice, roasted, BBQ’ed, or raw with hummus. Fresh summer strawberries with vanilla bean ice cream are a favorite treat of mine right now. I also make a mean butternut squash curry macaroni and cheese.
I’ll be in the office during the day Saturdays as well as Tuesday evenings. While I am in the contracting process with insurance companies, I’ll be offering reduced rates. If you or someone you know would be interested in a nutrition consultation or learning more about my services, I’d love to hear from you at moc.d1510986265ooFht1510986265iWeca1510986265ePgni1510986265taerC1510986265@adna1510986265mA1510986265 or you can also schedule an appointment on our website. Thanks for reading, Amanda Field, RD CD
