A little bit about me and what I do

Today, The Wall Street Journal, The Huffington Post, Epicurious.com, BabyCenter.com, Glamour Magazine, Parents Magazine, O Magazine and Today’s Dietitian Magazine.

In addition, I was the voice of the “Eating Right” minute, publicizing key nutrition messages on WBBM Newsradio 780 AM and 105.9 FM.
