As a registered dietitian and a master gardener, I know the healing power of food. Nothing has given me more satisfaction than growing my own food, especially here in Southern California.
I have experience working in the public health field, including school districts. I have worked with pregnant moms, children, diabetics, and bariatric patients. My thesis was on the effectiveness of garden-enhanced nutrition education on 4th grade students. Gardening offers a link to not only eating healthy, but an outlet to enjoy a new hobby for children and adults.
I emphasis a plant-based, whole food diet. Yet, I appreciate the movement of eating sustainably, while hoping folks appreciate the bean as a source of protein.
