    July Fruit Ambassador: Megan Mckenna

    What got you into blogging?

    I started blogging initially as a creative outlet. I focussed more on fashion and travel when I first started because I wanted something separate from all the nutrition and food I was studying in school. Over the years though, my love for nutrition has really taken the lead, and a huge part of my blog is all about food :)

    Which Farmers Market is your favorite?

    I don’t want to be bias because I live in St. Albert, but definitely the St. Albert Farmers Market!

    Favourite fruit?

    My favourite fruit would have to be mangos. Followed by nectarines!

    What does your 9-5 look like?

    Currently, my day consists of being at the hospital from about 8AM-4:30PM as I am a Dietetic Intern! After that, I always try to sneak in some blogging whether it be working on a post, or shooting some photos. I try to get in some form of exercise everyday - my favourites right now are outdoor runs (the weather is too beautiful not to get outside!) and HIIT workouts! I like to end my evening with an episode of The Office, just for some comedic relief haha. :)

    Where do you like to go to escape the city?

    I love heading to the mountains, at any chance I get! The fresh air and beautiful landscape is just so calming!

    You study nutrition at school, why did you choose this field of study?

    I chose to study nutrition at school because it is something that has always interested me. Even when I was a child, helping my mom pack healthy lunches for school was something that I loved to do. My passion is in the area of clinical nutrition - food and nutrition are integral in health and recovery from illness, as well as basic well being. Helping people get the nutrition they need to feel the best they can is so rewarding.

    What do you want to do when you graduate university?

    I want to be a Registered Dietitian when I graduate university. I’m actually done my coursework at the University of Alberta, and I am currently in my Dietetic Internship! So I’m almost there!

    What is your favourite topic to blog about?

    I don’t think I could choose just one topic. I like being a “lifestyle” blogger because it opens the door for me to blog about absolutely anything I want! So there really is never a dull moment :)
