Whether you just need some ideas for getting meals on the table without a lot of effort or are looking to follow a non-diet, weight-inclusive approach to wellness, I’d like to think you’ve come to the right place.
I’m a weight-inclusive Registered Dietitian and mom of 2 little ones.
I believe all bodies are good bodies and that everyone deserves access to fair, quality care and treatment in all aspects of their day to day life. I’m a firm believer that everyone has the right to move & fuel their bodies in any way that best supports their own physical & mental well-being.
And finally, I love a delicious meal, but don’t often have the time or energy to cook anything too elaborate, so I like to share recipes that (mostly!) come together quickly or can be prepped in advance…juuust in case you’re in the same boat!
I started Cait’s Plate way back in 2009 as a hobby. When I started, I was working in Digital Marketing in NYC and while I loved the creative aspect of it, I found myself more and more excited to work on my blog each day. It was then that I made the decision to leave my job in Manhattan and pursue a degree in nutrition.
I attended Boston University and received my Masters in Nutrition, participated in a Dietetic Internship then sat for (and passed!) the Registered Dietitian exam. I now run Cait’s Plate full-time (or at least during the moments I have where I’m not running after my kids and dog!).
The blog has gone through many iterations over the years from sharing my daily meals (read here why I no longer do that!) to recipes as well as snippets of my every day life.
So what can you expect to find here these days? The sharing of recipes that I happen to be loving (from main meals to desserts), meal inspiration, non-diet, weight-inclusive nutrition advice plus bits and pieces of my life.
Along with the weight-inclusive, non-diet approach to nutrition, I’m also firm in my belief that wellness is completely individualized. I advocate for every person to make the choices that best serve them. I also do not believe the pursuance of health is an obligation, but rather an individual choice. Every body is worthy of being treated with care and respect regardless.
Overall, I hope to help you learn about the hidden harms of the diet culture we live in and provide tools to that can help you live the life that best serves you and your values.

As a non-diet, intuitive eating Dietitian, I was grateful to have had the privilege of speaking with Good Morning America to help introduce those who may be unfamiliar to the basics of Intuitive Eating. Below you’ll find the segment and if you like what you hear, you can learn even more by visiting my Intuitive Eating series on my site, follow along with me on Instagram or Twitter (where I often delve deeper into Intuitive Eating nuances) or check out my nutrition articles on my site.
