AOL Diet Coach
I’m an AOL Diet Coach on AOL BODY with online weight control workshops, podcasts, quizzes and tips. Join me there to learn about The Indulgence Diet and how remodel your kitchen pantry and fridge for healthy eating.
I’m “The Lady of the Refrigerator” on Alton Brown’s Food Network series, Good Eats. The LOTR is a recurring nutrition expert character who appears when Alton opens the fridge. She’s dressed in an ice blue gown and glittery jewels (Picture) and frosts up the screen in such beloved episodes as Olive Me, Feelin Peachy, Where’s the Corn Beef? and Behind the Eats. Yes, Alton is as smart and smart-alecky as he acts on the show!
