Forkful is a weekly nutrition newsletter inspiring you to break up with dieting—and pick up a fork.

We tear away from toxic diet culture and approach health from a welcoming, holistic perspective. One that promotes living a long, happy life—not one focused on the scale.

Free subscribers will receive the weekly Saturday email including the latest essay, a recipe, and a roundup of recommendations from yours truly.

Paid subscribers ($5/month, $50/year) will receive audio readings of the weekly essays (for those who would rather listen!). They also have exclusive access to Bite Sized, a podcast of “bite sized” discussions on the latest nutrition news. Plus, any other behind-the-scenes content with my research, expert interviews, and more.
