Hello, and welcome to Nick Digs Food! I work as a Community Nutrition Educator, so I spend most of my time talking about food, farming, cooking and health. I enjoy digging into the interconnections between food, culture, health, and the environment. I hope to use this blog as a place to share my knowledge and experiences, and to share my enthusiasm for explaining the science and research behind common nutrition questions.
I earned my Masters Degree in Nutrition from Virginia Tech in 2005, and my research has been published in the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior, the Journal of Food Technology, the Journal of Hunger and Environmental Nutrition, and the Journal of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Community Development. I have also written over 60 consumer-friendly nutrition articles as a Nutrition Educator for PCC Markets, most of which are archived on the PCC website.
I enjoy helping other people make conscious food choices for improved personal and planetary health.
