In this episode I’m chatting with Abbie Gellman, fellow Registered Dietitian and owner of Culinary Nutrition Cuisine, about being a nutritionist with culinary training, blending cuisine with nutrition expertise, and the fun she’s had starting and running her own successful business.


Some of my key takeaways from my chat with Abbie include:

  •    Recognizing when it’s the right time to take a chance of yourself and going for it;
  •    The quality of your work and kindness can get you far both professionally and personally;
  •    Flexibility in your professional life is incredibly valuable;
  •    Never underestimating the importance of being patient and willing to put in the work to be successful;
  •    Healthy living is feeling good in your own body.
