About Me

I'm Desiree, registered dietitian, host of TV's The Urban Vegetarian and author of the plant-based anti-inflammatory cookbook, Eat More Plants.

I can help you eat more plants, fight inflammation and heal your gut.

I spend WAY too much time thinking about my next meal. I love rocking out in the kitchen and digging in my little garden. I travel for the purpose of eating. My pet peeves include shoddy nutrition information and chia seeds in my teeth – as a registered dietitian, it’s an occupational hazard. I hoard cookbooks but rarely stick to the recipe. And it took me 5 years to get my kid to like kale (persistence is my middle name).

Eating well isn’t just about nutrients…the foods we choose to eat can either break our bodies down over time or nourish our cells and restore our health and vitality. I take an integrative approach to nutrition and I can show you the power of plant foods to transform and re-energize your mind and body.

Praise for Eat More Plants

You are meant to feel amazing.

I believe that we are supposed to feel energized and vibrant, and that anti-inflammatory nutrition is the way to get there. That health begins in the gut. And that healthy plant-based eating should be delicious, simple and fun. No deprivation, no guilt, no dogma, no garbage. Eating this way is for everyone...whether you're vegan or bacon-obsessed.

Join me and discover what it means to be truly nourished.
