So glad you are here! Pull up a chair, and chat with me while I cook. Do you want a cup of tea?
Tell me about your family’s food story. Every food journey is unique. And it is always changing.
- Ours began 20 years ago when my husband discovered repeatable symptoms when he ate certain foods.
- Just this summer my daughter came home from college and she has a special diet that her doctor has prescribed to go along with her treatment regimen. Sigh. I think this is our seventh.
- Then my son added three new foods to his allergy list and is able to eat clams again!
- Tell me your story . . . .

A dietitian’s eating philosophy
I believe that there are many ways to eat a healthy diet. I focus on eating more whole foods including: fruit, vegetables, lean protein, whole grains, and dairy. I believe most people can fit their favorite foods into a healthy diet. Eating is about pleasure and community as well as providing the nutrients our bodies need.
I encourage families to enjoy healthy food together. Special emphasis here is to give food-sensitive families the tools and skills to ensure every member feels good after eating.
Why do my pictures look different?
A couple of words about the food and pictures you will find here. The pictures on my website are pictures I have taken of real food that my family has eaten. I do not style food and throw it away just to make it look pretty. I also do not develop from scratch most of the the recipes you will find here. I usually begin with a recipe and modify it. Sometimes it is modified so much that it becomes my own. Sometimes I do not modify it at all – well hardly at all. Then you will find the source and perhaps a link.
What her students have to say . . .
Cindy really knows her stuff and kept the lectures interesting. I think all the topics were introduced so we could relate it on a personal, practical level. Great energy every class!
Now when I go to the grocery store I tend to be more careful and make sure that I read any and all labels before purchasing. I liked how interactive you were with the class! You were very hands on and always eager to answer any questions. You are very patient. I appreciate that you take the time to make each student feel welcome.
Offered endless advice and assistance to anyone who needed it. Helping students understand the subject matter in simple and concise ways. Being able to take large, multifaceted ideas and beak it down to just meat and potatoes (sometimes literally). Genuinely works with students respectfully and earnestly. Organized.
