Hello! My name is Sydney Messick and I am a registered dietitian in Manhattan, KS. I graduated from Kansas State University with degrees in Dietetics, Kinesiology, and Human Nutrition before completing my dietetic internship at St. Louis University in St. Louis, MO. I’m now (slowly but surely) finishing up my thesis research to get a Master’s in Kinesiology back at Kansas State.
My goal is to make healthy eating approachable and enjoyable for all. I work with each client to create a personalized plan that includes everything – from whole grains and fresh produce to ice cream and cookies. It’s all about balance! I love to show people that you don’t have to sacrifice time, taste, or loads of hard-earned cash to eat well.
I specialize in sports nutrition for athletes of all levels and sports, guiding clients in fueling properly for competition, pre-, during, and post-workout, hydration, and weight gain or loss.
On this blog, you’ll find informational posts as well as “spotlight” posts. Spotlight posts are a collection of easy, delicious recipes I’ve found throughout the week to inspire you to get in the kitchen and get cooking real food! Please feel free to contact me via the form below if you have questions, suggestions, or are interested in finding out more about the nutrition services I provide to help you reach your goals!
