I’m Talia Follador, a Philadelphia-based Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) and Health & Nutrition Writer.
Firm believer that all foods fit (but also that food restrictions and diets are sometimes indicated for medical, religious, ethical, or preferential reasons).
Lover of eating food, cooking food, talking about food, learning about food, and taking pictures of food.
Nutrition educator and myth-buster (both during my day job as a dietitian my side hustle as a health and nutrition writer).
