Carolyn O'Neil, M.S. R.D.

The more you know, the more you can eat!

I truly believe that the more you know about nutrition, the more delicious and varied your food choices can be. As a registered dietitian my professional specialty is food & nutrition communications and my personal passion is sharing the wonderful win-win of taste & health today via many media platforms.

As a blogger, cookbook author, journalist, speaker and broadcast professional I enjoy reporting on food, nutrition and cuisine for websites, television, radio, magazines, and newspapers. I seek out the best food facts by visiting farms and food producers while sampling some of the most fabulous restaurants and home cooked meals in the world.
My goal is to promote great health through good nutrition.
