Welcome to MGN!

I’m Sunnie…

I’m a 15 year old nutritional activist and I love to share my healthy makeovers of some of my favorite foods. You can expect to find plenty of delicious oatmeal concoctions, sinful tasting green smoothies, and healthified comfort food.

I used to eat jars of Nutella and Twizzler after Twizzler,  and I couldn’t care less about nutrition. Now, I’m dedicated to preserving the health of our country by sharing delicious, healthy recipes and great information. I know that adopting a healthier lifestyle through nutrition will make you feel amazing and give your body the ability to rise to it’s full potential. Here’s to health!

I love to hear from you! Email me at moderngirlnutrition@gmail.com, or leave a comment!

  3. I really love your logo design. It’s so cute. I also love your message! Nutrition really is the base to living a healthy life. I’m not sure if you are in college yet, but do you plan on studying nutrition?

    • Thanks for all the nice words Amy! I’m glad you like it- I was thinking of replacing it but I love it too:) I’m not in college yet, but I definitely plan on doing something with nutrition…it really is so important! I would also like to do something invoving graphic arts:) Thanks for the comment!

    I’m still trying to figure out what to do withmyself (just read your “then and now ” post). Leaning toward paleo or zone in order to fix my GI issues, fatigue and anxiety.

    Have you ever tried Garden of Life Raw Protein? Typically I am only about whey protein isolate (all natural, no additives, pure and best bioavailability). But considering switching it up with possibly that Garden of LIfe stuff. I hope it tastes decent. It worries me though because it is basically a grain protein powder (and I may soon have to attempt paleo, so that would be a no-no).

    • I love Garden of Life! I have to say Ive only tried the chocolate, but I love it in smoothies and it’s the healthiest protein I’ve found so far. Plus, a half scoop gives you almost 10 grams of protein, so it’s not to expensive considering how long it lasts! Thanks for visiting:)

  10. wow, great blog and great logo!

  11. Wow! I am so impressed by you and this blog. I teach 15 year olds everyday, and I witness firsthand how awful their eating habits are. Good for you!

    • moderngirlnutrition

      Thank you so much! I see it everyday too and hope that trend gets turned around soon! Thanks for visiting:)

    I found out about your blog through Tone It Up and absolutely love all of your recipes, they all seem so easy and convenient and I can’t wait to start trying some of them, I just pinned a bunch of them to a couple of my boards on Pinterest actually (:

    • Thanks so much Chelsea! I don’t have the best memory for a million ingredients, so convenience is a must for me 🙂 As for the PB question, I would say it’s fine to have it everyday, as long as it’s natural and you stick to around the serving size. I now eat almond butter everyday, sometimes twice a day, and think those healthy fats are so essential to your diet!

  13. Hey Sunnie! 🙂 Your blog is inspirational! I love it!!! 😀

  14. Thanks for you nice comment on my blog! I love the message your blog has! Keep it up 🙂

  32. I absolutely LOVE your blog!!! I work as a lifestyle wellness coach and exercise specialist and am SOOO ENCOURAGED that a BeAuTiFuL 15-year-old girl would be so dedicated, informed, and educated on how to reverse this horrible epidemic our nation is currently dealing with! I came across your blog by googling reviews for Perfect Fit Protein by the ToneItUp girls 🙂 I’m so glad I did!!!

  33. Is Sunnie your real name?! If so, you are really lucky – it is such a beautiful name!!! Lovely blog, I am really glad I found it. It is so nice to see someone in high school to eat so healthy! You are inspiring!

    • So happy you stopped by! Yep, my real name is Sunnie. Most people think it’s short for Sunshine haha;) Thank you for all the nice words and have a lovely day!

  34. Hey Sunnie! I wish I was this conscientious about nutrition in high school, but I couldn’t be happier that I started in college! Before I joined the blogging community, I remember coming across your blog and thinking wow, this is one of the most well done and healthy blogs I have ever seen! Healthy Eating= ❤ Can't wait to read more from you! 🙂

  35. It’s so great to see someone so young who is passionate about eating and being healthy! I love the blog and look forward to getting a chance to see future posts!

  36. I wish I would have had your determination at that age! You are an inspiration! How does your family feel about your health consciousness? I know it was hard for me to eat healthy until I was on my own in college.

    • I’m super lucky that my family likes eating healthy for the most part! Since I cook dinners most of the time, it’s easy to make something healthy that everyone likes:) Thank you for stopping by!

  37. Healthy Glow Nutrition

    I love your site! I am very impressed that for your super young age you are so into nutrition. This is AMAZING!!! You have set yourself on an incredible path to a very healthy life. You are not only helping yourself, but other young girls out there! You go girl 🙂 I wish my 19 year old daughter had some interest in nutrition. I am a Nutritionist so go figure that she would have no interest 😦

    • Thank you so much for the sweet comment! I didn’t use to be interested in nutrition at all, but now I love it! Your blog is amazing too:)

      • Healthy Glow Nutrition

        You’re very welcome. We all develop an interest in nutrition at one time or another. It is amazing that you discovered it so young. Some older adults can learn a thing or two from you. I am glad you like my blog, I like to share my passion and love of good food with everyone 🙂

  38. You are very wise for your years… and very talented! I’ve no doubt you’ll go far with your passion for food and nutrition. Beautiful pics, fun site and great food ideas! 🙂
