hello! my name is tia
My name is Tia Glover and I am a food blogger and Registered Dietitian. I created Taste It with Tia to help young women to learn that being healthy doesn’t mean you have to eat bland, “health” foods all the time. Every meal you have should be tasty and satisfying!
My journey started in high school. I was a year-round competitive swimmer and was obsessed with learning what foods would fuel me best. After all the google searches you can imagine, I decided that it was time for some formal education. I decided I wanted to become a Registered Dietitian!
I graduated from Virginia Tech in 2019, with a B.S. in Human Nutrition, Foods, and Exercise. The fall after I graduated, I completed my Dietetic Internship at Virginia Tech (Go Hokies!) and passed my registration exam to become a Registered Dietitian.
After I got my credential, I worked at WIC where I provided nutrition education to pregnant and breastfeeding women, infants and young children. After a year, I left this position to pursue my business part time while teaching nutrition and cooking classes to elementary schoolers.
During my high school and college career, I took nutrition a little too seriously. I would only eat “healthy” foods and whenever I slipped up and ate a “bad” food, I would feel extreme guilt that often led to binge eating. Eventually, through my amazing educational journey, I discovered intuitive eating and food freedom. I can proudly say I haven’t had a binge in several years and now include all kinds of foods in my diet. I now want to openly share my journey and help others through Taste It with Tia!
My mission is to help women create a healthy relationship with food. So many people today think that being healthy means cutting out “bad” foods or restricting overall intake. My philosophy is that all foods fit and to make lasting, healthy changes in your life, one must focus on healthy behaviors, and not the scale.
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit Taste It with Tia!
