Knorr Selects White Cheddar Broccoli with Cavatappi Pasta because I love curly pastas and, even better, it’s whole wheat!

I love to add as many veggies as possible in the dishes I create. Not only do veggies provide positive nutrition, but they can add volume to your meal and help you feel fuller for longer.

My purpose is to help people improve their health and wellbeing one meal at a time. I love having an impact on the products that end up on grocery store shelves and educating consumers on how to use those items in delicious and nutritious recipes.

Three Cheese Risotto – Selects. It's the perfect example of the direction Knorr is moving in and why I'm involved with the company. Simple and domestically sourced ingredients, free of MSG and chemicals, and delicious.

Less is more. Focus on what you're using, not what you're going to do to it. Look for products in their growing season and let them shine!

Purpose is the reason for everything. Finding yours will drive you beyond the possible and keep you centered in the most difficult times. We all need a purpose, when we can align ours with passion and community we're unstoppable.

I have been a dietitian for over 20 years.

One of my favorite Knorr products is the Knorr® Selects Granulated Vegetable Bouillon. I also enjoy the Knorr® Selects Rice variants because they are so quick and easy to prepare for dinner. One of my favorite recipes I’ve created using the Knorr® Selects Rustic Mexican Rice & Beans is my Cinco de Mayo Salad. Once the rice was cooked, I added kale, roasted garbanzos, tomatoes, jicama (which is a crunchy fruit), walnuts and minced jalapeños. It is so delicious!

You only need just a spoonful of bouillon to make your meals pop!

I run a nutrition business where I help people eat healthy to improve their overall health. My clients are mostly Hispanic, and I enjoy teaching them about our Latin foods and how it is possible to preserve our cultural foods while benefitting their health. My purpose is to teach my clients that healthy eating shouldn’t be complicated!
