Welcome to my blog! My name is Sangeeta Pradhan. I am a Registered Dietitian and Certified Diabetes Educator. I work as the Diabetes Program Coordinator of a large physician practice group in the Metro-West Boston area. I am also a professional speaker with over 19 years of speaking on the (very broad and yes, confusing!!…), topic of nutrition at non -profit and corporate accounts. I had the distinct honor of being a speaker at the Mass Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics’ state level annual conference in 2015, 2016, 2018 and 2019. In Feb 2017, I was invited to, and presented a talk on the “Gut microbiome” at Simmon’s college, MA. In the fall of 2018, I presented a talk on “Nutrition and Cognitive function” at Framingham State University. I was also interviewed on the “Nutrition experts” podcast in January 2019 on the link between nutrition and the brain. In September 2019, I presented a webinar on the impact of nutrition on cognition, including the risk of dementia and depression for “Today’s Dietitian”, the nation’s premier resource on nutrition for health professionals.
I am a guest blogger for Food and Nutrition magazine’s Stone Soup Blog, and I am also currently the Chair of the Central Mass Dietetic Association.
Knowledge in and of itself is of no value unless shared with others. By sharing my professional knowledge that is based upon scientific evidence and current research with you, the reader, I hope to inspire you to accomplish your health and nutrition related goals.
Having said that, understanding nutrition will only take you so far. At the end of the day, you need to translate these sound nutritional concepts into real foods that you can actually enjoy. To this end, I have created a repertoire of delicious recipes using whole and wholesome ingredients. I was blessed to be raised in a traditional Indian household in an era when everything was prepared from scratch, (not to mention with a dash of love and a pinch of passion)! By osmosis, I must have imbibed this I suppose, because cooking soon became my passion and an integral part of my life. As an RD, somewhere along the way, I learned to tweak traditional, calorie dense recipes to make them healthier, without sacrificing flavor! ( I also learned to not reveal to my family that it was a “tweaked” recipe)!!
So in addition to my articles, I invite you to check out my recipe index, dig in and enjoy!
