Collette Sinnott, RD, CPT

Hi there! I am a registered dietitian & certified personal trainer with a love of cooking and the outdoors! I created this blog to share my nutrition and fitness expertise and promote healthy lifestyles focused on disease prevention. I advocate for variety in food choices without restriction and encourage others to eat mostly nutrient-dense foods while including enjoyable foods. I am also passionate about fitness and recognize the benefit in moving a little each day!

  • Whipped up these sausage, egg, mozzarella, & veggie muffins yesterday afternoon for breakfast this week. These have some whole-wheat flour, quinoa, and chopped bell pepper/onion/spinach for added fiber and micronutrients, making them super satisfying and adequately filling! I like to make a big batch and freeze them. From frozen, they heat-up in the microwave in 80-90 seconds!

Recipe on the blog soon! 👆

  • Thank you @albertsons for making dinner a breeze with these fresh-cut bell peppers and onions!
Tonight, I combined whole-grain rotini, sauteed peppers and onions, and mozzarella + olive oil, salt, pepper, and turmeric. I served it with baked pork chops with the same seasonings.🌶️🥗🧀
I love how versatile pasta is, making it easily one of my favorite quick dishes to make! This meal was made in about 25 minutes and #boyfriendapproved!

  • Continuing #tacotuesday with some shrimp tacos at home. Threw some brown rice, beans, and spinach together with shrimp and added minced garlic, salsa, tapatio, cumin, chili powder, and a little salt for some great flavor! Topped with plain Greek yogurt and mozzarella cheese on whole wheat tortillas.
👉HINT: plain yogurt tastes surprisingly like sour cream which means you can get an extra dose of probiotics, protein, and calcium by making this simple swap!

  • I love #pesto so much that I've been putting it on everything: brown rice/sausage/veggie bowls, breakfast scrambles, and pizza!

Pesto is so easy to make and can be made so many different ways! Not to mention it's versatility and #positive nutrition profile, including unsaturated fats, #protein, #fiber, and many #vitamins and #minerals. The version I made here includes #walnuts + #sunflower seeds + #oorganics fresh herb #salad + #canola oil. A quick blend in my food processor was all it took to get a nice, smooth texture!

The basic #recipe includes:
🌰 Nuts/seeds
🌱 Greens
🥑 Oil
🧀 Cheese (optional)
🥄 Salt & pepper
  • Whipped up a batch of blueberry vinaigrette to pair with this strawberry, walnut, purple cabbage salad! Only thing missing is some goat cheese. Gettin in those #antioxidants #omega3s #vitamins #minerals 👌💪

  • My favorite #preworkout when I workout in the morning and don't have time for a full meal: #fruit + #water. Carbohydrates and fluid are all you need before exercise to give your body quick energy. Remember to fuel-up with some protein, carbs, and fluid #postworkout to replenish your glycogen stores, give your muscles the best opportunity to repair and grow, and rehydrate!
