I’m Tamara. And I happen to know a thing or two about a thing or two when it comes to food and nutrition, cooking and eating, recipes and healthy living. I’m a Registered Dietitian (RD) with a master’s degree in Clinical Nutrition; a cake lover challenged with gluten intolerance; and a firm believer that there’s too much incredible real food out there for us to be wasting our precious eating opportunities on things like processed soyburgers, Tasti-D-Lite and other such food-like substances that could remain shelf stable until the next millennium.

I’m on a quest to liberate myself (and those of you who would join me) from the monotony of our current diets…and to help heal the world’s most vexing problems from the comfort of my own kitchen. By buying healthy, minimally-processed, sustainably-produced foods and using them to cook delicious, homemade meals for ourselves and the people we love, we can truly make the world a healthier place.

To heck with those women’s magazine diet plans that would have us all eating chicken caesar salads and counting out our almonds every day for the rest of our lives!  Begone, you ubiquitous, shiny “Red Delicious” apples that are bland, mealy, and anything but delicious!   I’m going back to the basics, and I invite you to do so, too: cooking real food at home, expanding my foodscape, and trying to eat in a way that respects the environment.

I’m on a mission to get you to join me in the kitchen!
