Abby Olson RD, LD

I am a member of the Academy of Dietetics and Nutrition, Licensed in the State of MN.  Special interests and groups I am a part of include: Academy of Eating Disorders, Sports, Cardiovascular and Wellness Nutrition, Behavioral Health Nutrition, Functional Nutrition, and the Slow Food movement. 

I am a mother of 4 energetic children that keep me busy all day!  I enjoy running, biking, hiking, gardening, cooking, and spending time with my family.  

My personal history with finding a connected relationship with food is what sparked my passion to combine my interests of nutrition and behavioral health.  Because of my journey, I am able to see how important balanced nutrition is to every day life including gut health, mood management, energy levels and overall enjoyment of food.  




My life

I believe that nutrition encompasses all areas of health.  What we eat and how we approach food can provide our bodies, minds and spirit with a balanced way of life.  Food is nourishing and purposeful, but also enjoyable and fun.  When our relationships with food become emotional, disconnected, or physically challenging, we need to find our way back to balancing the power of food and it's role in our lives.
