I know I know… you’re probably thinking to yourself,” shouldn’t it be a FILIPINA foodie since you’re female?” Yes, you and my parents are exactly right. I am totally and technically a Filipina (-American) foodie dietitian, but for all practical purposes, we’ll just call me a filipino foodie 🙂
Okay, now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let me formally welcome you to A Filipino Foodie blog! My name is Sheena Quizon Gregg, MS,RD,LD , and I currently work as a registered dietitian seeing all ranges of the age spectrum for one on one and group nutrition counseling. I received both my bachelors and masters in Human Nutrition and Hospitality Management from The University of Alabama (ROLL TIDE!). I’ve had the opportunity to complete the Commission on Dietetic Registration’s Certificates of Training in both Adult and Childhood/Adolescent Weight Management as well as participate in advanced training for body image and eating disorder issues. I have been a dietitian for over five years now but have loved food my whole life.
I’m new to the world as a wifey, getting married in 2012 to my handsome husband I met on match.com with our primary responsibility being our pup Lieutenant Dan Taylor Gregg (Lou for short). As a dietitian & food lover, I truly believe that you don’t have to be a registered dietitian to advocate and practice healthy eating habits. And though I believe that healthy food can be tasty too, I also know that we eat for two reasons: 1) to nourish our bodies AND 2) sometimes for just pure pleasure and enjoyment! I hope that through this blog I can share my every day thoughts on food and nutrition, and hopefully I’ll be able to share some yummy recipes along the way! 🙂
