It’s amazing how much the blogosphere has blown up in the past few years, namely the internet world of food and nutrition blogging. I am so excited to be a part of it and so thankful for all my readers, taste testers and supporters! Another thing I am grateful for is all the wonderful and talented people I know and the wealth of information that I have access to being in the nutrition and healthcare profession as well as a blogger. So I thought I’d share some of it with you, bit by bit, here and there through a new segment…. Shout-Outs. Here I will give “props” to other dietitians, chefs, foodies who blog, have written cool books, developed delicious recipes, etc.
My first Shout-out is to an awesome woman who has done all of the above, Cheryl Forberg. She happens to be my long time friend, but anyone who just meets her would be impressed by her accomplishments (so I am not biased, haha!). I think the BIO on her website sums her up the best “Cheryl Forberg, RD, is a James Beard award-winning chef, a New York Times bestselling author and the nutritionist for NBC's "The Biggest Loser." One of the few professional chefs in the country who is also a registered dietitian, Cheryl has shared her expertise in nutrition and healthy recipe development in a dozen books, the latest of which is "Flavor First: Cut Calories and Boost Flavor" “.
We met at UC Berkeley when we were both studying to get our nutrition degrees and I have had the opportunity to learn with and from Cheryl and even work with her too! I have to admit, one of the greatest perks of being her friend has been being a taster for all her delicious self-created recipes! You can learn more about all the awesome books she has out on her website and check out her blog there too.
It has been exciting to watch her take off, as a dietitian, Chef, now writer and media spokesperson. So a big Shout- Out to Cheryl and I invite you to check her fabulous site !
