A dietitian at heart

What can I say? I’m a dietitian at heart. But I’m human, too. I love crisp salads, great grains, low-fat yogurt... chocolate mousse, a slice of pizza and even a glass of fine wine. For most healthy individuals, indulging from time to time is just what the dietitian ordered. Well, this dietitian, anyhow. The secret is moderation.

I got hooked on dietetics in university. Today I’m doing what I’ve always dreamed of. Helping others like you nourish, flourish and energize.

Lemon Rosemary Chicken Ingredients: 1.5lbs Chicken breast, preferably with skin for browning but [...]
