About me

“A cheerful heart has a continual feast.” Proverbs 15:15

Hello, and welcome to Cheerful Feast!  My name is Colleen, and I started this blog to document my food and fitness endeavors.  I am a Human Nutrition/Dietetics graduate student at the University of Michigan, and I am working at a nutrition consulting company this summer.  I love cooking and experimenting in the kitchen, and sharing my creations with my family and friends gives me real, lasting joy. 

I lost 50 pounds in high school by following the Weight Watchers Points program, and have maintained my weight loss for 6 years.  However, I didn’t develop a healthy relationship with real food until the last few years, and I now enjoy delicious and nutritious food along with plenty of treats, too!

Thank you for stopping by, and I would love to hear from you!  Please contact me at cheerfulfeast@gmail.com.

  5. Thanks for your comment today! 🙂

    I wish I had majored in Nutrition. I know I can always go back to school. Do you love your program?

    • I do love it! I spent a lot of time researching different graduate nutrition programs and found the perfect one for me. Let me know if you have any specific questions–I know it is so daunting to think about going back to school and wading through all the information.

  6. I love this recipe! Going to have to try it out the next time I have a burger craving fo’ sho’! Also, how cute is your sister’s dog? I’m a terrier fan… as if you couldn’t tell by the entire page of my blog dedicated to my mini schnauzers! 😛
