EmilyBurger

Hello, my name is Emily Burger and I am a senior here at UW-Green Bay studying Nutrition. I am an intern for the UWGB Wellness Committee. I love to bake and cook and I am always looking for new recipes to try. Sometimes I come across recipes that sound really good, but may not be the healthiest. I then use that recipe as the base, but then make some substitutions or use less of certain ingredients. If you have recipes that you are interested in making or have recipes that you have used for years but would like to make them healthier, email wellness@uwgb.edu the recipe and I will make some substitutions for you! I’ll also include why it’s healthier and explain some of the nutritional information behind it. A few simple changes can make a big difference!
