About Us

Sexy, craveable healthier food. Simple. Wholesome. Delicious. Recipe inspiration from my kitchen to yours! With adorable recipe videos. 

My name is Julie, and I am the The Gourmet RD.  I am here to share some food love with you through simple, delicious and wholesome recipes.  I do all of the recipe creating, food styling, photography, tasting and writing in my kitchen, add my quirky thoughts to it, and put it out there for you to enjoy {and I hope you do}!

Simply put, I love food, and all aspects of it.  I’ve spent the better part of my life helping people improve their lifestyle as a Registered Dietitian (hence the “RD” in The Gourmet RD).  To learn more about cooking, I put on a Chef’s hat and flame-retardant pants and attended culinary school.  With that, my love for food and confidence in the kitchen sky-rocketed, allowing me to do what I love to do – Help people learn to cook fresh, wholesome meals.  And nothing makes me feel better than sharing a home-cooked meal with the people I love {a.k.a you}!   In addition to blogging, I am an all-around food content creator.  I am a food stylist, food photographer and videographer, recipe developer, food writer and media chef (love being on TV!).  I work with brands and companies to create delicious food content and cook on TV to (hopefully) inspire others to get in the kitchen and cook simple, wholesome and delicious meals.

Oh, and just a little bit about the rest of my life:  I have a hubby named Ben whom I’ve spent 16 glorious years with, and we live in the chilly, but beautiful, state of Wisconsin with our 2 kittens, Kobe and Felix.  We love to bike, camp and watch movies together, and I love to shop and DIY all sorts of fun crafts.

And just in case you were wondering… my favorite foods are pasta, popcorn & olives!  Take a look around – I hope you find something you love!

Again, WELCOME!!
