Beyond Gumbo is a blog relating my culinary experiences since moving to Louisiana years ago.
Why another recipe blog, you might ask? Doesn’t the internet already contain lots of food blogs? Yes, but I have a unique perspective on the topic. As a nutritionist I’ve worked both in food service management and the clinical setting. I love to cook and that proved useful in the catering end of food service. This period of time was just when healthy eating was growing in popularity. So along the years, I’ve tried to adapt my favorite recipes to make them more healthy. I hope to share more than recipes; a goal is to discuss current trends in nutrition and health. And I grew up in a family that gardened, with grandparents as mid-western farmers. So, I’m doing my best to keep an urban garden growing and will share my experiences here. Welcome to my blog!
