My name is Alexandra Rothwell, and I’m a nutritionist specializing in breast cancer survivorship and general wellness. Cooking is a hobby for me – likely the reason I found myself as a student of nutrition, and I enjoy preparing the foods you’ll find on this site as a way to decompress from a busy NYC life. The purpose of this blog is to serve as a creative outlet and a place to collect and share good food ideas.
I do not strictly prescribe to any specific diet dogma on the site, so you will see a range of food types. Some are vegan, some are dairy free or gluten free, and some are full of sugar, cream, and wheat. I’m a big believer in the concept of “everything in moderation” and that an individually “perfect” diet is where optimal health and quality of life overlap. That said, I personally feel my best with some combination of Mediterranean and plant-based diet styles, so many of the recipes you’ll see here will fit into those categories. It’s all about nourishment – for the body and soul.
Thank you so much for visiting Feast of Green. I hope you enjoy what you find here, and I would love to hear your thoughts, suggestions, and questions!
