你好,great to meet you

Hi, I’m Edith!

I’m a Registered Dietitian with over a decade of experience. I love to eat, cook, create recipes and share health and nutrition information with others. “Knowledge is power and I believe everyone should have access to evidence-based nutrition information”

 Specializations: Kidney Disease, High Blood Pressure, Diabetes, High Cholesterol, Pediatrics, Pre/Post Natal Nutrition, Weight Management, General Nutrition and Wellness, Chinese Cuisine/Culture, Asian foods

While working in healthcare at hospitals, skilled nursing facilities and dialysis centers, I realized that many people ended up with chronic health conditions without really knowing how they got there and what they could do to help manage it. Oftentimes, they were those that were at the end stages of the disease and all that they were given were medications to treat the illness but nothing to equip them to manage or delay the progression of their disease.

It was because of this that I became inspired to start a practice of my own – I want to help people BEFORE health conditions progress, I want to empower my clients with the knowledge to know how foods impact their body and their health and how they can make realistic and sustainable changes to live healthy lives and feel their very best.

I’m also a mom and love to find ways to make cooking and healthy eating, easy and fun!
