About Me

Posted on January 8, 2017

Hi there!  My name is Alex and I’m a registered dietitian/nutritionist (RDN) from sunny Florida.  I strive to live a healthy lifestyle and believe in whole, nutritious foods that nourish our bodies.  I’m also a board certified specialist in oncology nutrition (CSO) and believe food can be one of our biggest allies in the prevention of disease.  My philosophy surrounding food is all about balance- you won’t find me turning down a slice of birthday cake!  Working as an oncology dietitian, I’ve had countless patients come to me with misconceptions regarding food and nutrition science and utterly confused with all the conflicting information that’s out there.  I started this blog to be a source of evidence based nutrition information and to take the fear and confusion out of healthy eating.  Here you’ll find simple, science-backed nutrition info as well as healthy (and tasty!) recipes.  Thanks for stopping by!
