I am passionate about nutrition and food, and I love to create easy, healthy recipes that families can enjoy together. I use this food and nutrition blog to share my creations, including new spins on beloved, old recipes, and options for people managing food allergy symptoms.

I also closely follow the latest nutrition guidelines, and I’m sometimes called on to comment at USDA and FDA meetings. So here you’ll find my perspectives on nutrition policy, too.

Easy, healthy recipes… No-nonsense tips… Dish about the latest nutrition guidelines…

That’s what this nutrition blog is all about. Let me know what grabs you!
