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.

Will I change my mind in light of the recent announcement by the cancer- research division of the World Health Organization (WHO) that eating red meat and processed meat increases the risk of developing colorectal cancer? In a word, no.
Is bone broth the new coffee? The new green juice? The new kale? In part due to interest in Paleo and ancestral styles of eating, bone broth has been gaining popularity for a while. But it was clear that this traditional food had become a bona fide food trend when it started showing up in fashion magazines, and people started standing in long lines in New York City to buy it in to-go cups, instead of coffee.
