    Speaker Bio: Ellie Krieger, MS, RD

    Host and executive producer of the cooking series “Ellie’s Real Good Food” on Public Television, and well known from her hit Food Network show “Healthy Appetite,” Ellie Krieger is a leading go-to nutritionist in the media today, helping people find the sweet spot where “delicious” and “healthy” meet. Krieger’s success can be attributed to her accessible way of offering tools for nurturing a richly satisfying, sumptuous lifestyle while cutting through the gimmicks, hype and extreme eating that permeate our world.

    She is a New York Times bestselling, IACP and two-time James Beard Foundation award winning author of six cookbooks, and her next book Whole in One: Complete, Healthy Meals in a Single Pot, Skillet or Sheet Pan will be released in October 2019. Ellie is also a weekly columnist for The Washington Post and has been a columnist for Fine Cooking, Food Network magazine and USA Today.

    A registered dietitian who earned her bachelors in clinical nutrition from Cornell and her masters in nutrition education from Teacher’s College, Columbia University, Ellie has been at the forefront of First Lady Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign from the beginning when Mrs. Obama’s team invited her to head up a nutrition education initiative at a Healthy Kids Fair on the Whitehouse lawn.
