Helping you achieve optimal health and mind-body wellness, one bite at a time
Carrie Dennett | MPH, RDN, CD
I’m Carrie Dennett and I’m a Seattle-based registered dietitian nutritionist, freelance writer, intuitive eating counselor, vegetable gardener, and caretaker to two golden retrievers and four backyard hens.
I love to read, drink coffee (or wine or craft beer), watch movies, do yoga, meditate and go on long walks with my husband or dogs (all three, when schedules allow). I also 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.

Let’s work together
In my article this month for The Washington Post, “The totally unsexy path to healthy eating (and why we’re not following it),” I touch on an unfortunate fact about nutrition science. Namely, that more often than not it’s not exactly groundbreaking.
I was checking my email and raised an eyebrow at one of the subject lines: “This harmful ingredient lurking in everyday foods!” After, “How in the hell did I get on this woman’s email list?” My next thought was, “What is this alleged harmful ingredient, and how irritated will I be when I find out what it is?” Allow me to debunk this nutrition pseudoscience.
