Hi there! My name is Liz Bissell and I am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist. By day, I work as an Oncology Dietitian at Mercy Health Saint Mary’s in Grand Rapids, Michigan. By night you can normally find me trying, experimenting with, cooking, or talking about food (and if not, you can bet I’m thinking about it). With that being said, I truly believe in a balance in all aspects of life and food and exercise are no exception.
Growing up, the kitchen was THE place to be. I am one of five children and all of the commotion always occurred in the kitchen…great meals (courtesy of my amazing mother), arguments, apologies, hugs, dancing, you name it. This included some of my fondest childhood memories, such as cleaning dishes after dinner with my sisters dancing to Michael Jackson, all while our three-year old brother stood on a stool and twirled us around the kitchen. I think it is for these reasons that the kitchen remains my happy place.
So the big question. Why did I start this blog?
Over the past few years as a dietitian, my love for trying new recipes and my new adventure as a media spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics has created a plethora of new information that I can’t wait to share with all of my followers. I have also noticed a surge from friends and family alike asking for help on how to cook healthy or to help demystify all the information out there about nutrition. And there is a lot!
Why choose my blog?
There are so many food blogs out there, and some truly excellent ones at that. However, as our society continues to depend more and more on social media platforms for news and information, it continues to be even more important to make sure your sources are reliable…which can be challenging. As a credentialed dietitian, the knowledge I share here is evidence-based and reliable.
Here’s what you can depend on my blog for:
- New recipes to try! (some for health and some just because)
- Evidence-based and reliable nutrition information
- Tips and tricks to improving your health
- Food reviews
- Freelance writing
- Demystifying complicated nutrition information
