Liz is a registered dietitian nutritionist who has been passionate about healthy food, family nutrition, and vibrant living for over 30 years. Her mission is to help individuals, families, and communities discover the joy of wholesome and delicious food. Liz’s journey has been fun and fulfilling, and her boys grew up to be adventurous eaters. She has written five family cookbooks, developed free recipes and online resources, and created hundreds of podcast episodes. Currently, Liz’s culinary and nutrition focus is on a topic that is near and dear to her heart: longevity.
Liz’s passion is to live an anti-aging lifestyle. She believes that it is all about moving the body more and choosing foods that fight conditions like heart disease and cancer, bolster brain health, and sharpen vision. Liz practices what she preaches by walking (almost) every day, doing yoga, and riding a stationary bike. She has a real food philosophy, which is all about adding food groups to the diet, not taking them away. Her goal is to provide simple, colorful fruits and vegetables, and easy-to-find everyday ingredients that make mealtime a breeze.
In addition, Liz received her undergraduate degree in Nutrition and Dietetics from the University of Rhode Island and her Master of Science degree in Nutrition Communications from Boston University. She completed the professional Chef’s Program at the Cambridge School of Culinary Arts in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Liz is a member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND) and two of their practice groups: Food & Culinary Professionals and Nutrition Entrepreneurs.
