Hi, I’m Emily - thanks for visiting my page! I am a registered dietitian with an enthusiasm for good food! I created this site to serve as an inspiration for making healthy taste great. I take a positive approach to food and I think that eating well is one of the most important things we can do for ourselves.
I eat to live and I live to eat – in my free time I am likely to be found playing in the kitchen or with my nose stuck in a cookbook, lucky for me these things count as “work!” Otherwise, I am nature-loving, yoga-practicing, master-gardener-wannabe with a long list of favorite people, places, and things.
Visit the Recipes page for links to some of my favorites, or check out my blog for original creations. Enjoy!
