Hi! I�m Becky, the Registered Dietitian with Sparkpeople. I live on my �family farm� in southern Indiana with my husband, daughter, and son. It is a small rural community. The closest fast food restaurant is 20 miles away and the nearest shopping mall requires a 50 minute drive. Yes, it is slightly slower-paced, but a pace that I cherish.

I enjoy working in my vegetable garden, preparing new recipes, sewing, and walking in my woods with my canine companions, Roxie and Cassius. My children will tell you that I am fixated on eating meals together as a family at the kitchen table. This is often the only chance to connect and catch-up. It is a time to comfort the pains of the day and celebrate the joys of living.

I also admit that I am a techno-nerd. I do not Twitter. I cannot Facebook. Heck, I don�t even own a cell phone. However, I do enjoy connecting with others at Sparkpeople as we journey together to improve our health. So join me, as we:

Ignite our inner fire,
Fuel the blaze daily,
And spread the SPARK to others.

Nutritionally Yours, Dietitian Becky

    I had the Spark Solution Book and loaned it out...never got it back, go figure and don't remember who I loaned it to. ANyway, I wanted to know if the breakfast cookie recipe is on the website and how to find it. I have looked in the recipes, but am not seeing it.

    Thank You,

    Becky, I am gluten intolerant, but do substitute GF products for regular gluten products. But how can I tell what is whole grain in GF? I want to be sure I'm getting the best carbs I can, but am not sure something with rice flours counts. HELP!

    How can I get my daily calories up? Under 1000 and fat intake down seems my daily fat is highest percentage of calories. Trying lower carb more protein. Both of them are ok in percentages???
