I consider this blog a mechanism to channel food and cooking anecdotes while sharing nutritional knowledge accumulated as a Registered Dietitian. It’s a personal attempt to recapture my creativity and summon my love for food, nutrition and health. Unfortunately, my day job doesn’t allow such delights; but it does pay the bills.
While I no longer counsel patients in a hospital or directly fight childhood obesity, I am committed to a field that is powerful enough to prevent disease and illness, while captivating senses and provoking memories. I’m also cultivating an appreciation for locally produced foods and sustainable agriculture – taking a more systems approach to food; searching beyond the plate, asking questions, and learning where my food comes from.
I live in the food-phile city of Philadelphia in a suburb of Philadelphia after spending 5 years roaming the restaurants in the City of Brotherly Love… and, most recently, exploring the fabulous array of farmers’ markets the city has to offer. This blog has helped me to realize that the most enjoyable type of food is the kind created in one’s very own kitchen using fresh, seasonal offerings that provide optimal nutrition and help protect our land and our environment.
