For most of my life, I have had a strong affinity for food. Food is an art, a medicine, a craft, and an integral necessity to everyone’s existence. It is something to be enjoyed by all people, to it’s fullest potential but within reasonable measure. Studying nutrition has motivated me to share my passion for food while promoting the role of healthy living and simple cooking to my peers and within the community.
In the past few years, I was fortunate to gain experience connecting with people of various ages and demographics. I have educated in clinical settings, at schools and with non-profit organizations. Recently, I piloted my own nutritional cooking course with an all-ages group of participants with the Bringing Up Down Syndrome organization. In this role, I thrived in creating successful agendas, shopping lists, and detailed lesson plans. In each lesson, I utilized my educational knowledge while bringing fun and simplicity back into the kitchen.
My ability to communicate exciting nutrition information clearly and accurately is best exemplified in my most recent writing samples. I have contributed works to various professional blogs, including the Food Network’s Healthy Eats blog and The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company’s Nutrition Tip Blogs. As a hobby, I began writing here at Appetite101.com.
I flourish in any setting where I can preach what I practice; therefore, I aspire to continue doing what I truly love- communicating about health, wellness and nutrition- in the professional realm, as well as in my personal life. After all, it takes full dedication and commitment to remain current on news, trends, and relevant health information.
My belief is if we can get more people to appreciate meal times again, we are inching closer toa future where food and nutrition matter. I hope to motivate readers to find their own joys in cooking and living healthy.
