This Coming Wednesday Evening’s Radio Show – Bonnie R. Giller


Our guest on Blogtalkradio.com, this coming Wenesday at 8:00pm (Eastern Time) will be Nutritionist Bonnie R. Giller. What are her credentials? Bonnie R. GillerMS, RD, CDN, CDE, has published two cookbooks: Recipes to Remember – Heart Healthy Can Be Delicious and Passover the Healthy Way: Light, Tasty and Easy Recipes Your Whole Family Will Enjoy. She is now hard at work on a third cookbook which will contain over 300 recipes for healthy living.

She has been in private practice since 1987.  Her main message to people who are trying to lose weight is that Diets Don’t Work.  Bonnie would like to introduce the concept of Intuitive Eating which is eating mindfully and not mindlessly.

In her practice she also provides Medical Nutrition Therapy, which is treatment of various disease states through nutrition, as for example with diabetes.  Bonnie Giller is a certified diabetes educator and work extensively with people who have diabetes and pre-diabetes.  She provide nutrition services for those with gastrointestinal issues as well.

On these days when we hear so much about healthy eating habits, when the traditional Eastern European Jewish cuisine – while delicious – can actually be harmful, Mrs. Giller delivers the message that healthy eating need be neither boring nor unimaginative. As her books attest, you can eat healthy and still enjoy the wholesome flavor of myriads of dishes. The secret lies in the ingredients and the preparation.

Meanwhile, in case you missed it, why not listen to our conversation with Ladino‘s owner/Chef Alexandre Petard?

Don’t forget to tune us in this coming Wednesday at 8:00pm (Eastern Time), for a very interesting, informative, entertaining talk with Bonnie R. Giller.
