About me: ROcket City Dietitian

Hi Y'all!

My real name is Rachel Brown. I am a Registered Dietitian & Certified Diabetes Educator with over 10 years experience in the world of Dietetics in various specialities including Bariatrics, Diabetes, In-Patient/Outpatient as well as Pediatrics.

I have always been a Foodie! My mom swears my first word was 'HAMBURGER'.  I grew up as an Army Brat,  living in 6 different states over the years. I feel like this made me a more well rounded person and helped me open my tastebuds to a wider range of tastes and flavors.

I graduated high school in Marietta, GA and then moved to Nashville, TN to get my Bachelors in Nutrition and Dietetics from Lipscomb University.  I made the move to Huntsville, Alabama in 2016 with my husband, standard poodle and two young children.

Food is so exciting to me! It uses all your senses, its simple, yet so complicated and so destructive for some. I believe if YOU respect food, it will RESPECT you. It can be a beautiful symbiotic relationship.

This blog is here for fun, to inform, to start discussions and create excitement over something we live with everyday: FOOD!
