About Me

Welcome! I’m so glad you’re here!

Hi there, and thanks for stopping by!  I’m Anne Danahy. I’m a registered dietitian nutritionist specializing in healthy aging, menopause, and chronic disease prevention and management. I also get strangely excited about teaching people how to take the science of nutrition and get it onto their plates. I love helping people lower their cholesterol, improve their blood sugar, sleep better, and feel better using the power of food.

I live by the motto “You Are What You Eat” (with a little bit of “Everything in Moderation” sprinkled in). As a registered dietitian nutritionist, I love to inspire individuals to eat more healthfully, even if it’s one meal or one recipe at a time. I believe the Mediterranean diet and other plant-forward eating patterns have superpowers (ask me about the research!). Most of my recipes and healthy eating tips are Mediterranean diet-inspired.

I’m fascinated by the relationship between health and food, and love to share what I learn about the ever-evolving research in my field. I never get tired of talking or writing about food. I have been and always will be a cookbook collector, food blog-reader, recipe-clipper, and cooking class-taker. One of my favorite things about working as a nutritionist is sharing the recipes, cooking, and healthy eating tips I use in my own kitchen with my clients and readers.

I live…

In beautiful, sunny Scottsdale, AZ where I’m grateful to enjoy 330 days of sunshine along with some VERY hot summers, but I’ll take that over shoveling snow any day.

I work…

as a juggler, mostly. In addition to writing articles and creating and photographing my own recipes for this website, I work as a health and nutrition content writer; I also provide recipe development, writing, and marketing services to food brands and restaurants; AND I work with the media to educate and inspire consumers about how to make healthy eating easier. I started my own business several years ago, and although I’m in constant motion, I truly love what I do. Read more about my services here.

I love…

when I find the latest issue of Food & Wine in the mailbox (yes, I still love to flip real pages); scoring a bargain on a great pair of shoes; working in my gardens; being able to exercise outside in warm weather (I used to live in New England where it hardly ever gets warm enough; and planning vacations (sometimes more than taking them).  I also have a fetish for paint and home improvement stores, which leads to endless redecorating projects around my house.

I eat…

almost anything, but my favorite foods are wild mushroom risotto, any kind of soup, and dark chocolate.

Thanks for visiting!  I hope you find some helpful information and healthy eating inspiration on this website.  If you would like to share your nutrition tips, successes, challenges, and adventures in healthy eating, or if you have a nutrition question, please don’t hesitate to contact me at [email protected] Something Healthy dot com.
