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.

Is your diet calorie-dense, or nutrient-dense? As a society, the answer is definitely calorie-dense. Overall, we eat few nutrient-dense vegetables and fruits but a lot of calorie-dense refined grains, fats and sweets — in other words, foods that have more calories per bite. And most people don’t need more calories.
You’ve probably heard it so many times that you take it as gospel: for better nutrition, shop the perimeter of the grocery store. Unfortunately, the idea that healthful and less-healthful food is segregated by geography is a fallacy on a few levels.
Some food for thought: We have the ability, through food choices we make today, to reverse the currently increasing rates of chronic disease and ensure the health of future generations. What will it take? A revolution in how we eat — with girls and women as the focus.
