Welcome to Cait’s Plate!

Welcome to Cait’s Plate and thanks for visiting!

I began Cait’s Plate back in 2009 as a way to share and inspire both myself and others to try new things, get creative in the kitchen, eat healthier when possible, indulge when you want to and just enjoy life to the fullest!

Over the years it has evolved into so much more as I do my best to balance a career, a social life, being active, having fun and eating really good food.

If you ever have any questions – please feel free to email me at caitsplate@gmail.com. I’m always happy to hear what you have to say πŸ™‚

**Just to preface this – I’m not certified as a nutritionist or a registered dietitian so nothing I say or do should be taken in that context.

      Thank you so much – that’s so sweet of you!! And yes, working at Health is DEFINITELY a great job! I couldn’t ask for a better environment to be surrounded by on a daily basis!

      Congrats on taking the steps towards becoming an RD – you’re setting yourself up to help many people out which is an amazing thing.

      I hope I continue to keep Cait’s Plate exciting for you to read and definitely look forward to your feedback! πŸ™‚

    I love your website. Keep it up!!!

  5. Great blog, Cait! I am trying to start one myself and am a big fan of the same blogs you are. Keep up the great work!
    Also, how did you find a job with Health? I’m moving to NYC in a few months and would LOVE to find a job in the health/publishing/editing field.

    • caitsplate says:

      Hey Emily! So exciting that you’ll be moving to the city! I actually came upon this job because I had done a Time Inc. Networking thing in college and I had specified that Health was my area of interest. I’ll definitely keep my eyes peeled around here and let you know if I hear of any openings, but otherwise I’d suggest mediabistro.com – it’s a GREAT source for publishing jobs πŸ™‚ GOOD LUCK and thanks for reading!!

    Hey Cait!

    What do you do at Health? I’m a media planner in the city and meet with ad sales reps from Health. I was an avid follower of the same blogs as you, and also just recently started my own blog! I was excited to see another NY blogger (doesn’t it seem like everyone is in the South??). I’ll be reading! Check mine out if you get a chance!


    Good luck with the blog!

    (I’m a newbie!)



  12. Hi! Just found your blog – love it! And I LOVE Health magazine! What exactly do you do there? I was a journalism major in college but unfortunately never pursued it.

  13. Yeah a New Jerseyan! I just found your site today and it is great! I am from NJ but have been away these past two years since I graduated from college. I always feel like I instantly bond with people when I hear that they are living in NJ haha.

  14. Wow, what a great blog!
    I’ll be back for more!

  15. What do you do at Health Magazine?!?

  16. Hey! Just stopped by and wanted to say that your blog is awesome! I will definitely be a frequent visitor in the future.

    PS. I can’t imagine what it would be like to work at Health. (dream job of mine) That must be so exciting for someone as health conscious as you are πŸ™‚

  17. Cait, I am very happy to have found your blog. I love writing and would love some advice. Perhaps advice on freelance and magazine writing, etc. I may continue to follow your blog πŸ™‚

  18. Nice blog…I definitely am adding you into my rotation!! πŸ™‚

  19. Love your blog Cait! You’re making me miss home. I’m from NJ and have friends and fam who live in Hoboken. How awesome you work for Health. Can’t wait to read more πŸ™‚

  20. Wow super jealous of your fun job! And I have a lot of friends who live in Hoboken. Go Giants!

  21. You have a great blog Cait! I just came across it this week and have been an avid reader. I’ve bookmarked it and will be stopping by regularly.

    You have a great attitude to food and life!


  22. Hi Cait, love the site! I’m looking forward to reading more! Your job at Health sounds really awesome. πŸ™‚ Are you looking into becoming an RD or DTR?

  23. Cait,

    Got your blog info from my brother (Greg E.) – it’s awesome, and I love your take on things. I’ve been working as a health & fitness specialist with my company (started our health & wellness programs about 6 years ago), training clients and coaching them to a healthier lifestyle, and it’s refreshing to see a handful of others (on your blog) that just seem to “get it”. I couldn’t agree more, life isn’t about “diets”…the word itself is short-term in nature…it’s about putting the best fuel in your system, consistently, if you want the best performance from your “machine”. And if you put some low-octane in once and again…no big deal, sometimes it just tastes good…but if it’s always…your “machine” will fail. So happy you’ve joined our Wellness Challenge on team “Greg E”. Looking forward to reading your blog.

    • Eric – Oh yay! I’m so glad you like it!! And thanks for stopping by! πŸ™‚ I’m definitely excited to partake in the Wellness Challenge! Greg has always filled me in on what you guys do and I’m always so jealous. Seems like such an awesome job!

  24. hey girl!
    i love your blog! i’ve always wondered – how did you land a job at health? i’d give my firstborn to be there!

  25. Hey Cait! great blog! glad you are back! missed reading your blog! thanks for sharing! looking forward to reading more :)))

  26. btw, congrats on your new job! hope you’ll find joy in doing what you do! πŸ™‚ i definitely look forward to reading your insights on things and be inspired, like i was inspired by all that yummy egg wraps! :).

  27. love your blog like a lot!…its very cool how people have such amazing food and they are healthy!…your so pretty!!!

  28. So glad you found me, love your blog too:-)
