Nutrition is your
secret weapon to exceptional performance.

So there I was... the civilian contract Tactical Dietitian for the Army and Army National Guard. It was the dream job. Now I have taken everything I have learned from my Soldiers and built Asparagus & Gold Nutrition Consulting. I created this practice to be one of your sources for credible tactical nutrition information from a Registered Dietitian. I was surprised to learn that some branches do have Holistic Health and Fitness teams, or H2F teams, with Dietitians, but many still do not yet. There is a critical need for more nutrition care within the military.

Hi there, I'm Jenna

I am a Registered Dietitian who specializes in nutrition readiness for Soldiers.

I have helped hundreds of Soldiers reach their ACFT goals, achieve their desired body composition, and prepare to fuel for schools and field trainings.

My transformative Nutrition Readiness Program is designed for success. Each Soldier is responsible for their own outcomes. With my program, you can get there with greater ease.

The purpose of my practice is to translate the science and provide information for you to make the best decisions for your performance and readiness goals. Every private client consult and strategy clinic is offered virtually to accommodate your busy schedule.


My mission is two-fold. One - to prevent nutrition-related injuries and other conditions that would impact a Soldiers deployment ability. Two - to prepare Soldiers with healthful nutrition strategies for the field and at home.


My vision is a country where every Soldier can perform at their best, powered by good nutrition.
