Inspiring healthier eating one dish at a time

About Me

Hi –I’m Anne Danahy, the blogger behind Craving Something Healthy. I’m a Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist, who is passionate about teaching people how to take the science of nutrition and get it onto their plates.  I live by the motto “You Are What You Eat” (with a little bit of “Everything in Moderation” sprinkled in), and I love to inspire individuals to eat more healthfully, even if it’s one meal, or one recipe at a time.

I’m fascinated by the relationship between health and food, and love to share what I learn about the ever-evolving research in my field.  I never get tired of talking or writing about food.  I have been, and always will be a cookbook-collector, food blog-reader, recipe-clipper, and cooking class-taker.  One of my favorite things about working as a nutritionist is that I get to share the recipes, cooking, and healthy eating tips that I use in my own kitchen with my clients, and now with the readers of this blog.

 I live…

in the Scottsdale area, with my husband, who after 27 years of living with me still counts French fries and onion rings as vegetables.  We have a cat named Muffin, and  I am a very proud mom to two fabulously awesome children who are almost grown, and away at college, which is why I have the time to work on this blog!

I work…

In addition to writing and editing this blog, I work as a health and nutrition writer. I also coach and teach individuals and groups about nutrition and wellness, and I provide recipe development and marketing services to food companies and restaurants.  Nutrition is a second career for me.  I worked in marketing and communications for 10 years after graduating from the University of Notre Dame.  Always interested in food and health, I went back to school to get a Master’s degree in Food and Nutrition from Framingham State University in MA, became a Registered Dietitian, and haven’t looked back!


I love…

when I find the latest issue of Bon Appétit or Food & Wine in the mailbox, scoring a bargain on a great pair of shoes, working in my gardens, being able to exercise outside in warm weather (I used to live New England where it hardly ever gets warm enough, and now I’m thankful to wake up and see sunshine and have warm weather all year long!), and planning vacations with my family (sometimes more than taking them).  I also have a fetish for paint, and home improvement stores, which leads to endless redecorating projects around our house and yard.

I eat…

almost anything, but my favorite foods are wild mushroom risotto, almost any kind of soup, and dark chocolate.


Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you found some helpful information and healthy eating inspiration.  If you would like to share your nutrition tips, successes, challenges, adventures in healthy eating, or if you have a nutrition question, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
