As overweight teenager, I believed that I was destined to inherit the same western diseases (obesity, diabetes) that several in my family suffered from. I believed that I was a victim to my genes, until I discovered that genes may be the match, but lifestyle can either light/fuel the fire, fight, or extinguish it. I discovered that I could modify my health risk factors through my food choices. Because of this new-found knowledge, I was determined to become a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, and share this discovery with others.
As a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist for 4+ years, I have gained experience in both clinical (hospital based) and outpatient (clinic based) settings. I have worked with a variety of ages and backgrounds. Through this experience, two overarching themes are clear to me: 1.) in general, we need to consume more plant-based foods and 2.) just as each individual is unique, so are the reasons behind the food we consume. Our food choices go far beyond their nutritive value. Food is tied to family/friends, culture, memories, and pure preference. What I hope to communicate to you through my website, is that adopting a plant-based eating pattern will both physically and mentally nourish you.
