Happy Fall Y'all

Hey y’all! Fall happens to be my favorite season. There is nothing better than cool, crisp air, beautiful leaves, hot tea, scarves, boots, and fuzzy socks. I also enjoy apples with caramel. It is a delicious snack that is semi-healthy. I’ve actually provided one of my favorite caramel apple dips that you can use for any Halloween party or get together this fall.

Speaking of fall, I hope school is going well for you! The first round of exams should be over by now and midterms are coming up. If you are struggling in some of your classes, it’s okay! You got this! You will figure out how you study best for your classes; I’ve always found that I know the information better when I write out my notes after each class. I guess the muscle memory helps me understand the information.

Since a lot of us are going to school to become Registered Dietitians, there is an amazing opportunity for dietetic students to help us further our education. This opportunity is the Food and Nutrition Conference and Expo (FNCE). I am so excited to be attending FNCE this year! If you don’t know what FNCE is, it is where dietitians across the US and from other countries attend a conference to learn about new nutrition information that can be used in the dietetic field. While it may be too late to start planning now to attend this year, you can start planning for next year if you are interested in attending. If you are a member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, you will get a discount in comparison if you are not a member. There is a student internship fair where dietetic internship programs provide information, so you can find the program you are interested in and visit the program’s table to get more information. Next year, FNCE will be held in Washington D.C.

Enjoy this recipe while you are studying!
