Welcome to Faith, Hope & Quinoa! I’m glad you stopped by. This blog will journey through my year and a half left in school, my wedding and the various planning stages, long distance relationships, and of course food!

Here’s a bit more information to get you going. I am Alyssa and I am currently in my second and last year of grad school at the University of Minnesota School of Public Health in the Coordinated Nutrition Program. Whew that is a mouthful. This is a 2 year program and after I defend my Master’s Project I will be eligible to sit for the RD exam in Spring 2015!


As mentioned above I am getting MARRIED! I am marrying Chris, and here is a very brief synopsis of our long epic love story. We met in 7th grade, but didn’t date until our senior year of college! He asked me out in May 2011 and we didn’t go on our first date until December of that year. He is a very patient and persistent man! We dated for 2 years, both of which were long distance….gross. Skipping to the happy ending, he proposed in October next to a beautiful waterfall and we will be getting married Dec 27, 2014 and we cannot wait!

Last, but probably should have been first, is food! I am gluten free, by allergy not by choice, and will document my journey of me (hopefully) learning how to cook. Who knows maybe you’ll get some ideas!

And remember we all need a little Faith, Hope, & Quinoa in our lives!

    Hi Alyssa!
    Congrats on nearly finishing your program- my two degree are both in health and my sister/bff is starting her dietetics internship this summer, so I know exactly what you’re going through! Thanks for sharing at my link up, I look forward to seeing more from you 🙂
