About

Hi there! I’m Nancy, a mom, registered dietitian, certified diabetes care and education specialist, health writer, and group exercise instructor—as you can see I’m not just a little passionate about health and healing!

I created Nutrition Prescriptions as an extra resource for people I see every week with health issues, often with multiple medical conditions, who have endless questions about what to eat and how to feel better. You’ll see a lot of plant foods on my blog because I strongly believe in their healing power, having witnessed it time and again through people battling cancer, heart disease, diabetes, digestive diseases, addictions and many other conditions. I hope to inspire everyone to consider more plant-based meals, not just for health and the environment but because they taste delicious and are completely satisfying. My approach in counseling is holistic, as I too often discover that medical conditions are closely interconnected with not only diet but uncontrolled stress, lack of exercise, poor sleep, heavy medication dependence, mental health issues, lack of family support, and many other factors that may be unaddressed. Yet these are all key players when creating a personalized nutrition prescription.

You can find me at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and The Nutrition Source where I work as a science writer for the Harvard School of Public Health, tackling in-depth pieces on food, exercise, nutrition research, and health.

Nowadays there are a million and one blogs to check out, so thanks for taking the time to visit mine!
