Registered Dietitian, Culinary Nutritionist and Nutrition Educator
I believe that food should taste good and be good for you, and that with a little bit of knowledge anyone can make delicious, nutritious meals and healthier food choices for their families or themselves. My passion is working with people who are learning how to cook, helping them to understand the foods they eat and where they come from, and helping them to to make informed nutritional decisions. I counsel individuals and families on making healthy lifestyle changes and learning how to plan, cook and eat healthy, delicious meals that support their nutrition and medical needs. Most of all, I love food and cooking and enjoy sharing meals, recipes, and information with others.
“Encourage and subsidize home cooking. When people cook their own food, they make better choices. When families eat together, they’re more stable. We should provide food education for children (a new form of home ec, anyone?), cooking classes for anyone who wants them and even cooking assistance for those unable to cook for themselves.” – Mark Bittman, The New York Times, Feb 1, 2011.
