SARAH WAYBRIGHT, RDN – COACH

Sarah is a Registered Dietitian with a healthy passion for food who lives in Washington, DC. She believes that if people learn more about how food affects their bodies, they will make better choices and feel better, too! When she’s not cooking, thinking about food, or writing about food, she loves to hike, camp, and try new things that are scary (like hang gliding!). To relax and recharge, she does pottery and kickboxing. Her favorite kitchen appliance is her Ninja blender.
