I love food. I own more than 200 cookbooks and enjoy preparing meals that are both nutritious and delicious. However, I know that a healthy relationship with food doesn’t always come easily.
I believe that healthy eating doesn’t need to be time-consuming or complicated, and that health is not dependent on body weight.
No matter what your food and weight history, I can help you restore or discover a healthy, vibrant, peaceful relationship with food and guide you to find your best ways to nourish yourself. The results? More energy, better health and improved body image.

My latest On Nutrition column in The Seattle Times, “Coconut oil: It’s really not that good for you,” is my attempt to set the record straight on whether we should be eating coconut oil with abandon (hint: we shouldn’t). As a result, I received a number of questions via email regarding my suggestion in that column to use olive oil as a primary cooking fat.
I blogged about my recipe for rustic gazpacho when I first adopted it into my repertoire back in 2014. Much like ratatouille (more on this soon), it inexplicably fell out of favor after a few intense years. How fortuitous that I was re-inspired to make this fresh, lovely, easy soup as I was flipping through Nancy Harmon Jenkins “Virgin Territory: Exploring the World of Olive Oil” before giving a talk on the Mediterranean diet.
I have a handful of regular breakfast options in my rotation, but one of my favorites is what I call “Turkish Breakfast,” which is inspired by the hotel breakfast we had during our stay last year in Istanbul. It’s not only flavorful and satisfying, but quite nutritious!
