My name is Erin Kukura and I am the Recreation Registered Dietitian at RIMAC. I’d like to introduce myself and share a little bit about me with all of you! I’m a UC San Diego alumni and I’m so excited to be working where I had such a great college experience! I am passionate about working with others to live healthier, happier lives and to most importantly have a healthy relationship with food! In my free time you can find me baking cookies, taking walks with my dog Brody, practicing yoga, reading, and drinking tea. Do feel free to reach out with any questions or comments or if you are interested in becoming dietitian!

Frozen meal entrees can be a great staple to keep on hand for a quick dinner, or an easy lunch to bring with you to work or class. But, not all frozen meals are the same. Here are a few good options to stock up on!
With the new year upon us it’s only natural to think about areas of our life we would like to improve upon, especially when it comes to our health. This is a great time to reflect on the past year and to map out where you’d like to be. However, all too often I find most of my clients set vague or unrealistic goals although the intention is good.
One of the most common questions I get is how healthy frozen food is for you. The good news is that frozen food, especially fruits and vegetables is a budget-friendly, convenient option that makes eating healthy easier!
You know how it goes. Class until 4pm, Gym until 5:30 and then 40$ worth of Safeway produce later you arrive home at 7:30, ravenous with at least 30 minutes of chopping and cooking ahead of you. Or…a bowl of frosted flakes?
The holidays can be a joyous and stressful time of year. There are so many activities and parties to attend oftentimes around a lot of food. Here are a few tips to navigate this holiday season.
Breakfast is an important meal of the day. It oftentimes kickstarts our metabolism and can keep us satisfied and with enough energy levels to start our day. But, it can also be a challenging time of day getting ready for work or school.
While it might still be 75 degrees and sunny in San Diego, it’s still fall which means we’re getting excited about pumpkin! Canned pumpkin is available at any time of year, so you can enjoy these recipes at any time.
As a dietitian I often get asked what the “healthiest” way of eating is. Contrary to all the fads out there, there is no ultimate, magical way of eating. In fact, too much rigidity and stress due to restrictive or extreme eating habits is not healthy at all and can lead to disordered eating and eating disorders.
The New Year is upon us which means so is the bombardment of dieting messages. We resolve to “eat clean,” “cut out sugar,” or “lose x amount of lbs.” Only to find ourselves burnt out, frustrated and unable to “stick with it” by January 31st.
