About Holly Michaels

Hi! I'm Blendtec's resident Registered Dietitian. I spend much of my time at work developing fun new recipes for our incredible blenders. I've built my career around clinical and community nutrition, as well as research and a love for making healthy and tasty foods!

Nutrition is a deep passion of mine; I love finding ways to improve health and wellness through the foods and quantities we consume. I learned at a young age the importance of a healthy diet and lifestyle. As a child, my oldest brother was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, which prompted my interest in nutrition. The subject fascinated me so much that I studied nutrition in both undergraduate and graduate schools. I grew up cooking with my mother and became very fond of creating foods that are healthy and delicious.

In my free time my husband and I enjoy rock climbing, canyoneering, fishing, camping and just about anything else you can do outdoors in Utah. I also love to quilt, crochet, and read when you can pry me away from my blender.

What Can I do with Almond Pulp?

Holly Michaels
06 December, 2013

Do you make your own almond milk in your Blendtec and wonder what to do with all the leftover pulp? Don’t toss it. It’s full of high protein and fiber. Put it in your smoothies, use it as a replacement for eggs in baked goods, make it into a dip, or use it as a base for a facial.
