Welcome to Pretty Little Grub!
My name is Jen, and I’m a Registered Dietitian, Makeup Artist, running addict and world traveller living in Calgary, Alberta.
Some people say you should narrow down your blog focus to one topic but that’s just not me. I have passion for so many different areas and I love sharing them with all of you. On my blog you are going to find nutrition tips, race recaps, my latest beauty obsessions and travel recaps.
I have an “all food fits” philosophy, which means you aren’t going to see me talking about the latest fad diet – unless it’s debunking why it’s not a good idea. Instead, you will see me talking about ways to eat more intuitively and how you can nourish your body while still enjoying all the delicious food that you love.
I found a love of running about four years ago and I’ve never looked back. I’ve completed 17 half marathons and 3 marathons. My husband and I love to travel to destination races, why race at home when you could race around the world?
On top of running I love keeping active with other activities like hiking, barre, weight lifting, spin, etc. My body just feels best when it’s moving.
My husband, Tom, and I travel as much as we possibly can. People are always coming to us asking for our travel suggestions, so we share our travel recaps and tips on the blog. We also have a Instagram account that follows our adventures (@coupleofsuitcases)
I’ve always loved makeup and beauty. I went back to school and became a makeup artist in 2014. After working in the industry for a while I started to lose my passion for it. I have since decided to stop actively working as a makeup artist, although I still love to share my latest beauty finds and tips.
Pretty Little Grub?
Coming up with a blog name is easily the hardest part of blogging. I knew I wanted something that encompassed both food & beauty in the name. I started by writing out words for makeup & food. When I wrote out the word grub I knew that was it. Not only is it another word for food it is also my nickname! You see my Dad gives a nickname to pretty much everyone he meets and once he’s picked a nickname for you, it sticks. My sister’s nickname is Turkey, my brother is Gangster and me….I was Little Grub.
I hope you enjoy my blog. I am always open to comments, questions, etc. I will do my best to comment on your posts and respond to emails quickly. So feel free to contact me!
