Hi, I’m Darcie!

For me, food is both art and science. It represents beauty, nature, deliciousness, joy, love, energy, growth and healing. Food is also communication. Between people, food may be a way of expressing love, values, celebration or culture. Between cells, food and its powerful nutrients (or toxins) may turn on or turn off genes and deliver chemicals that have a profound impact on our health. I think food – its aesthetic and functional nature – is amazing, and I seek to enroll others in its pleasure and power.

This is why my nutrition career path has stemmed in two seemingly different directions. As a GI nutritionist, registered dietitian nutritionist, and food industry consultant, I know that food matters.
