Operation Nutrition

nutrition, fitness, motherhood, & everything in between


Welcome to Operation Nutrition!

Hi! Welcome to Operation Nutrition! Thanks so much for stopping by!

When I first started Operation Nutrition,  my goal was to share healthy recipes. Over the years this blog has evolved into so much more.  It’s a place for me to document my way of leading a healthier life (sometimes posts are focused on nutrition, fitness, my love for essential oils, my favorite products, or just everyday motherhood ramblings). Basically, you’ll find a little bit of everything here.

So Who Am I?

My name is Kristin. I live in Maryland with my husband (“B”), daughter (“S”), and dog (Roxy). I am a teacher turned stay-at-home mom.

Here are some random facts about me:

  • I love using parentheses when I write.
  • I married my best friend.
  • I love to travel (specifically to the Caribbean).
  • We’ve been to 15 Caribbean islands (St. Croix & St. Thomas are my favorites)
  • Although I love to travel, I have a fear of flying.
  • I also have a snake phobia (I refuse to watch the movie “Snakes on a Plane”…two of my fears in one movie..no thank you)
  • I watched a live taping of “The Price Is Right” (FYI, Bob Barker was very unfriendly and quite rude. This crushed everything I ever thought about him when I would watch him as a kid).
  • I am a germaphobe (and wish I wasn’t).
  • My favorite place is the beach with my family.
  • I love to read, but usually fall asleep while reading.
  • I have taught 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade (1st grade was the most challenging for me).
  • I’m not a good speller and am horrible at grammar (I’m sure you’ll find a lot of grammatical errors on this blog).
  • I obtained a personal training and nutrition certification.
  • I’m so glad you’re reading my blog. 🙂

I hope you enjoy Operation Nutrition! Thanks so much for stopping by!

  4. Hi Kristin,

    Just wanted to say hi and that your website is awesome! I was wondering if it would be possible for you to look into making a healty granola bar? I eat granola bars everyday, but know that they are processed and full of chemicals. What do you think? Thanks, see you soon!
