I am a Registered Nurse with a background in nutrition. I have been a vegetarian most of my life and a vegan when I need to be 🙂 My passions are my herb garden & this website.
Before the San Diego Cancer Research Institute, SDCRI, became web based, I facilitated a weekly nutrition group. We called ourselves the NUTs. I presented the best nutritional choices for someone with cancer as well as for their family & friends. As an RN and the facilitator, I was there to impart nutrition facts, discuss the myths, unravel the research and encourage the clients to make informed decisions regarding their diets. Each person had a chance to ask questions about their personal struggles with cancer & nutrition. We learned from each other’s experiences, shared nutritional successes (and oops!), shared recipes and laughed often.
My goal with this website is to continue to provide practical, science based information regarding nutrition. I am always available by email if you have any questions or comments.
