Words to Eat By…
Was founded in 2007 by registered dietitian Cara Rosenbloom. With a solid academic background in writing and nutrition, plus a flair for communicating, Cara and her team can help you maximize the impact of your important nutrition messages.
Cara Rosenbloom RD – president
With over 500 published nutrition-related articles to-date, Cara is a cross between a journalist and a dietitian. She has a literature degree from the University of Western Ontario and a Bachelor of Applied Science in Food & Nutrition from Ryerson University. As the president of Words to Eat By, she merges her two passions — writing and nutrition — to educate and excite the public about healthy living.
Cara watches nutrition and food trends and follows the science, then consolidates the most important nutrition information into articles, lectures, recipes, soundbites and blogs that the public can understand. Her goal is to translate the complex world of nutrition into clear, concise and useful information for you and your family.
Cara is a writer at the Washington Post and Today’s Parent magazine; a blogger for Heart & Stroke; and the award-winning co-author of the cookbook Nourish: Whole Food Recipes Featuring Seeds, Nuts and Beans. She’s currently working on her next book - it will be all about feeding kids. Her love of pediatric nutrition grew from her earlier career as a dietitian at The Hospital for Sick Children (before starting Words to Eat By), and from feeding her two kids, Kasey and Aubrey.
As a seasoned presenter, Cara also brings her nutrition messages to schools, corporate lunch ‘n’ learns, cooking classes, conferences and TV programs across North America.
Cara is a member of Dietitians of Canada, the College of Dietitians of Ontario and the US-based Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. She also holds the position of Chair for Dietitians of Canada’s Business and Industry Network.
