Hey Friends! I am excited to share with you that I have officially joined the team at Epicured, a healthcare company that harnesses the natural restorative power of food to help people eat better, feel better and live better. As the first low FODMAP and gluten-free meal delivery service, Epicured makes handcrafted meals to provide its customers with IBS, Crohn’s, Colitis, SIBO, and Celiac Disease an easy (and delicious) way to achieve better digestive health.
As Epicured’s Vice President of Nutrition and Translational Science, I will work with the culinary team to translate cutting-edge science into evidenced-based menus of fresh, delicious, and well-balanced food. I will also continue to build clinical partnerships across the country, helping the meal service to launch new research programs and promote access to registered dietitians for its subscribers. My initial major contribution to Epicured has been to facilitate partnerships with 2 major US research centers. How cool is that? Currently, Epicured’s food is being utilized in clinical research trials to ensure diet compliance and to advance the research to better understand the effects of FODMAPs in the gut.
Here I am with the world renowned chef, Dani Chavez-Bello. Chef Dani leads the Epicured kitchen, infusing his fine-dining expertise and belief in the healing power of food. Chef Chavez-Bello has cooked in some of the best kitchens in the world, most recently at Bouley, where he also served as executive R&D chef and created the Michelin-starred restaurant’s unique teaching program. Inspired by the mission to make truly healthy food more accessible to everyone, Chef Chavez-Bello joined Epicured in January 2019.
Epicured is partnered and works closely with many of the best doctors and dietitians. Epicured offers a Partners in Health program that provides clinicians educational tools, a complementary sampler box of Epicured food, clinical webinars and much more. Learn more here. They also have a one-of-a-kind partnership with Mount Sinai Health System.
It has always been extremely important to me to work with people that have strong moral principles, share my passion for food and science, as well as know how to have fun! 🙂
Epicured feels like home to me and I can’t wait to see the great things we will do together.
Here are some of my favorites from Epicured!
If you know me, you know I love a good smoothie or smoothie bowl. I just love the flavor and fun pink color of these nourishing dragon fruit smoothies.
Seriously, how gorgeous is this Warm Autumn Salad ? This hearty salad is made with just the right amount of low FODMAP ingredients and complimented with a delicious mint vinaigrette.
I am also a lover of lettuce wraps. The chicken in these wraps is so flavorful and this entree makes for a light and delicious lunch. Add the fresh lime juice for the extra citrus flavor. Find the Epicured’s Hawker Lettuce wraps here.
And you know, I am a fan of a good energy bite. Epicured’s energy bites are made with uncooked oats, a great source of prebiotics (food for our healthy gut microbes). Enjoy these energy bites for the flavor and good nutrition while giving your healthy gut microbes some food too!
