Welcome to my site-so glad you stopped by!
Jennifer Lee Coburn RD, LDN
I am a Registered Dietitian and a Licensed Dietitian/Nutritionist from a small town in Louisiana. I am addicted to chocolate, despise housework, and have an obsession with anything lime green! I became an RD because I love food of all kinds and I love to eat!
When I was 11 years old, my Mom was diagnosed with Lupus (and now Multiple Sclerosis). She spent many, many weeks and months in the hospital, and during one of these stays, she was scheduled to see a Registered Dietitian. Mom told me how a dietitian came in and discussed her disease with her and talked about how nutrition and her diet could help her in her fight against this disease. She really made an impact on my mom. So much so, that Mom told me she thought it would be a great career for me. Needless to say, at 11 years old, that went in one ear, but didn't go out the other!
Fast forward about 7 years and I was a Junior at Louisiana State University. I really didn't know what I wanted to do with my life. I knew I didn't want to be in college forever and I was tired of eating peanut butter sandwiches and ramen noodles! And then, that little tidbit of information my mom had told me years before crept back into the forefront of my mind! The rest is history, as they say. I am so happy that I followed her advice and looked into this career.
I love food! I love to eat food and talk about food! I love to shop for food (I know I'm crazy) and I love to cook food! Most of all I love to help people and talk to people. I want to help people be at peace with the food they eat and not always feel guilty about eating things that "aren't healthy". Healthy is whatever you make it, and healthy is when you feel the best that you can. I want to teach people easy ways to prepare meals that are quick, nutritious and inexpensive. And to do all of this WITHOUT falling over at the end of the day!
I would love to help you invest in your health and provide personal nutritional consulations! All you have to do is click the green button below!
