Welcome to Neat and Nutritious! I’m Stephanie, a Registered Dietitian currently living in Austin, Texas, trying to figure out a plant-based lifestyle for myself while sneaking healthy foods into my husband’s meat-loving diet.

I have a strong passion for aesthetics in everyday life that has translated into beautiful, organized living and healthy, delicious cooking. In an attempt to give up artificial and refined food, I am on a journey to change what I love into something even better.

This blog started as a way for me to record the modifications I made to recipes in my vast cookbook library as I attempted to clean up our diet.  I made a project out of cooking through a book each week, researching and experimenting with healthy modifications as I went. Once my diet changed, it morphed into a more creative kitchen experiment, as I tried to make vegan meals for myself, while still making my meat-loving husband happy.

In the past few years, I have run 5 marathons, studied nutrition and food science, and started to pare down our belongings, craving a more healthy, creative, and minimalist lifestyle. My hope is to incorporate these passions into this blog, expanding on my adventures in vegan cooking and baking.

Thanks for stopping by!
