My Latest Writing Project

Over the past few months I have been contributing monthly articles to the website The Good Calorie.  It’s a great nutrition website that features articles written by Registered Dietitians, such as myself.  The focus of my articles are mainly on lactation and nutrition for pregnancy.  My articles so far include:
