Hi! I'm Micah, a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and trained chef with a passion for sharing delicious and nutritious food with my base of dedicated followers.
With experience creating recipes that have been viewed, made, and enjoyed by 30+ million people, I’ve worked with some of the largest global food and nutrition brands to meet their high standards for quality to engage and grow their audiences. Additionally, I have personal mission for empowering the community at large to cook delicious food at home through my personal blog, NutritionxKitchen.
My philosophy is simple; nutrition starts in the kitchen. Food should be enjoyed, with others, with passion and care. Eat what makes your mind and body feel its best.
I have also written, illustrated and successfully published a children’s book on Diabetes and nutrition that is sold across North America, and am working on my first cookbook.
When I’m not in the kitchen creating recipes, I’m a runner (who stops to pet every. single. dog), expat and devoted wife. In no particular order.
Listen up folks, I am going to help you make the best salad you've ever tasted 🥗 Here's how you can make any salad taste flavorful and exciting ✍🏻 Take notes! 1️⃣ Don’t be afraid to take shortcuts! Skip the chopping and the food prep. Purchase pre-prepped items at the grocery store. Purchase precut kale, cabbage, or exciting leafy greens to suit your palate. Don’t save the chopping for home, instead buy ingredients that are ready to eat. 2️⃣ Add something crunchy Who doesn’t like a good crunch? Adding roasted seeds, nuts or delicious breadcrumbs can be an exciting and nutritious way to boost up your salad. 3️⃣ Add diversity and flavor with nutritious dressings. I love making dressings that are simple yet delicious! Try adding fat, salt, acid, and flavor for the best salad dressings. 4️⃣ Add fruit and herbs What fruits are in season? I'm currently loving the peaches at my local farmers market. If not peaches, things like watermelon, mango, fresh berries make for great salad toppers. Herbs are always a plus! 5️⃣ Don’t forget your protein and fat Protein and fat are essential parts of a healthy diet, but the sources are very important as well. Personally, I like to toss in plant-based proteins to my salads or add an exciting twist with goat cheese. Ready to make your own?

Up close and personal with my Shawarma Spiced Sheet Pan Salmon- I made sure to zoom in so you won't have to 👀 While shawarma is traditionally made with lamb, chicken, or beef, which slowly turns and roasts for hours, we’ve put a simpler spin on a classic street food dish using flavorful spices like cumin, cardamom, cinnamon, and paprika, served atop roasted cauliflower and fresh vegetables, and tahini. Enjoy the taste of shawarma at home with this recipe for Shawarma Spiced Sheet Pan Salmon ✨ 👩🏻🍳Preheat the oven to 425F. Line a baking tray with foil. 👩🏻🍳In a small bowl, combine the spices, and olive oil into a paste. Divide in two halves. 👩🏻🍳Toss half of the spice paste cauliflower florets and red onion. Transfer to the baking tray, and roast for 20 minutes. 👩🏻🍳Remove the tray from the oven. Push the vegetables to one side and add the salmon. Spread the remaining spice paste overtop the salmon. Bake for an additional 8-12 minutes, or until the fish is fully cooked and flakes easily. 👩🏻🍳Top the salmon, cauliflower and red onion with pomegranate, chopped cucumber, tomato and parsley, a drizzle of tahini, and lemon wedges. Enjoy! Serve with a side of pickled vegetables, hummus, and pita for a *delicious* street food inspired supper 😋 Don't forget to save this recipe for later, or grab the full recipe at nutritionxkitchen.

To all the travel junkies out there- out of all the places you've been to so far, which country's food did you like best? For me, one country that comes to mind is Morocco 🇲🇦 It's a land of colorful wares, sunsets that will break your heart, and food that will make you come back for more. The spices and flavors used in Moroccan cuisine are incredible. Warm paprika, turmeric and cumin with mouth puckering preserved lemons - it's truly one of my favorite cuisines. Almost all dishes are made with the same collection of spices, but they all taste unique. It's pure magic. Inspired by my time in Morocco, I whipped up this delicious, warming Moroccan Spiced Cauliflower & Sweet Potatoes salad. While I probably won't be visiting Morocco again anytime soon, this recipe always manages to take me back. Who wants to go on a gastro-trip with me?! Drop by nutritionxkitchen for the full recipe.
