I'm Abby, an attorney turned dietitian who lives a very eco-friendly lifestyle. I created Abby’s Food Court to make a healthy, low waste life approachable, doable, and FUN. I’m passionate about helping you upgrade your health (and life) with hacks that are low-impact to your lifestyle and high-impact to the planet!


I use my expertise as a dietitian to cover nutrition and health topics and my expertise in sustainability to tackle the ins and outs of low waste living. Conveniently, the nutrition tips and the low waste living tips go hand in hand– the diet and habits best for our health are also the best for the planet’s!

I know firsthand that changing eating and lifestyle habits is hard enough. Layer on information overload and it becomes virtually impossible. The secret is finding trustworthy experts to support you. That’s why I’m here. I’m on a mission to empower you and to help you find the joy in healthy living. The choices you make every day and your daily habits add up and really make a difference.

If you’re ready to mindfully improve your health, detox your life, and help save the environment, you’re in the right place.

Let’s get to it!


Here's the full story:

While practicing law in New York City, I often felt like succeeding in my job required that I sacrifice my health. After a few months at my first job as an attorney, I didn’t feel like myself.


I lacked energy and focus, my body was stiff, and I found myself mindlessly eating in front of my computer all. day. long. Sound familiar?

I survived despite my unhealthy habits during college and law school because I set my own schedule each day around class and internships, I wasn’t commuting far, and I had built in breaks– fall break, Thanksgiving break, winter break, Spring break, SUMMER, etc. I could go hard and then crash, and crash I did. 

When I started working full time, something had to change. I couldn’t and, more importantly, didn’t want to feel depleted all the time (especially because I no longer had those built in breaks to recharge). I declared to my husband that I was going to prioritize my health and set a healthy tone for my career. Little did we know this decision would change my life.

I put my strong research skills to work and dug deep into the world of nutrition and wellness. A few months and a zillion cookbooks later, I was planning my meals, meal prepping, working out in the morning, hitting my daily step goal, and feeling better. When my colleagues started coming to me for nutrition advice, I couldn’t deny that this was my true passion. I took the leap, left the legal profession, and returned to school to become registered dietitian.

I loved being back in school, learning the science of nutrition and the psychology of eating and decision making. Throughout all my training, I was most fascinated by the disconnect between knowledge and action. 

Personally (and for most of my clients!), the more takeout or packaged foods I eat, the worse I feel. Despite knowing how different foods make me feel, I still wasn’t motivated to consistently eat in the way that makes me feel my best. 

I'm not alone. We’re bombarded with over 200 decisions about food every single day. Maybe you can avoid the cupcake in the break room and candy at checkout, however by the 200th decision of the day, it’s hard (virtually impossible, actually) to keep saying “no.” Constantly refusing the tempting foods around us and the ever present messages to consume is tiresome regardless of all the science that says we shouldn’t eat this and shouldn’t eat that! When you're exhausted, super busy, having a tough day, or having a great day, convenient, packaged foods often win.

It wasn’t until I adopted a healthy, low waste lifestyle and tapped into my environmentally conscious self that I successfully bridged the gap between knowledge and action. As my garbage emptied, my fridge filled with real, whole foods and I felt free and empowered around food. Doesn’t that sound amazing?

This is what Abby’s Food Court is all about. My mission is to make a healthy, low waste life approachable, doable and FUN for the sake of our health AND the planet’s. And, spoiler alert, the diet best for our health is ALSO the best one for the planet’s. How convenient is that!

There’s such freedom when we stop focusing only on the food and start thinking about the effect all our choices– from the foods we eat to the products we buy and use– have on our health and the planet. (Don’t worry, I’ll still discuss nutrition A LOT. I am a dietitian after all!). 

It’s my pleasure and passion to break down healthy, low waste living into easy steps for YOU so you can kickstart your wellness journey! I shape my content based upon your comments and questions and based upon my personal experience and my experience with my private clients. No matter where you are in your journey, I’m here to help you upgrade your life through proper nutrition and sustainable practices.

Are you ready to eat like our health and the health of the planet depend on it? Great! Because they do and I’m here for you every step of the way.


What is a healthy, low waste lifestyle?


Isn’t it amazing that even though we know, in general, what makes up a healthy lifestyle (eat more fruits, veggies, and whole grains, move more, meditate regularly, etc.), it’s still so hard to implement? What we WANT in the moment often overrides what we NEED for optimal health in the long run.

A healthy, low waste lifestyle takes a holistic and realistic approach to wellness. I’ve combined nutrition science, behavior change science, and the principles of zero waste, non-toxic living to build a unique framework to help you THRIVE.


AFC Pillars


1. Eat real, whole foods that are unpackaged and unprocessed


2. Reduce the amount of waste you produce


3. Live and move mindfully


4. Balance these pillars with your professional life


Conveniently when we start considering the effects our choices have on the planet, we organically cultivate healthier habits. We gravitate toward the healthiest foods (the ones that are unpackaged and unprocessed), we are more mindful of what we put in and on our bodies, we start moving more naturally, and we start engaging in our lives more. And, while we can’t be perfect (perfection is impossible!), we can all do better.

This is what a healthy, low waste life is all about. You can start wherever you are and I can help!
