1. What topic, person or hashtag do you follow religiously?

“I love anything to do with simple, fresh ingredient cooking. For cooking skills in general I am a big fan of Mark Bittman. His “how to cook anything” & “how to cook anything FAST” are must have resources for any cook. I use ALL of his cookbooks and love the apps.

I also love ALL of Shelley Adams Whitewater cookbooks as the philosophy of fresh, colourful and creative is what she is all about! I am also looking forward to seeing what my colleagues at the recently launched Dietitians of Canada Member Blog @DCmemberblogs are cooking up!

2. Why do you follow those blogs?

“I follow the topic of cooking in general since I am a foodie and my husband is a wine importer so we love to pair beautiful meals with delicious wines. I also believe the single biggest issue facing my field as a dietitian is the lost art of cooking skills. Often my clients need culinary tips even more than nutritional guidance to achieve success.”

3. Why should others follow those blogs?

“My philosophy is about eating FULLY (healthfully and soulfully). Healthy eating can also taste delicious and include ALL foods (even chocolate!). You can achieve health without guilt or complexity. If you are looking to improve your health chances are enhancing your general skills as a cook is as important as learning about nutrition.”
