In our weekly Friday Feature, we share a 5-question interview with one of the fantastic members of HealthyLivingBlogs.com. Take the time to get to know your co-members, pick up tips and tricks, blogging know-how, and recommendations from your fellow bloggers. If you’re an HLB member and haven’t gotten your interview email yet, don’t worry, you will in time! We’re working our way through a list of 2,000+ members’ blogs at random.
What’s your name, blog name, and how did you create your blog title?
My name is Deborah Murphy and I’m the blogger behind Dietitian Debbie Dishes. I love alliteration and I just happened to pick a profession that also starts with a “d”! Since I share a lot of recipes on my blog, I thought that adding dishes on the end would be appropriate since I am “dishing” out healthy recipes so Dietitian Debbie Dishes was born.
How would you describe your blogging style?
I share healthy (mostly!) vegetarian recipes with the occasional vegan and/or gluten free recipe. Some posts also focus on various nutrition-related topics like plant-based protein, pantry basics, shopping the farmers market, and more!
What are some of your favorite blogging tools?
I couldn’t live without Lightroom! I use it for all of my photo editing on my blog and instagram.
What is your healthy eating philosophy?
As someone who works in healthcare, I have seen what a poor diet can do to your health over the years. Therefore, I focus on eating nutrient dense, plant-based foods most of the time, while also leaving room for treats from time to time. When I say plant-based, I mean that I truly eat mostly plants (fruits, veggies, nuts, beans, legumes, whole grains) with just some dairy and eggs. Nutrition research keeps emphasizing over and over the power of plants for helping us lead healthy, happy lives so I am all about incorporating as much of them as possible into my diet.
What’s one goal you’re working towards right now?
My long-term goal is to figure out a way to take my blog full or even part time! I currently work full time as a clinical dietitian in a local hospital so juggling both that and my blog can be a little overwhelming at times.
