I’m Tyffanie, a bilingual Registered Dietitian Nutritionist based in New York City. I love chocolate, dachshunds, plants and speaking Spanish. I love food too – talking about it, cooking it, and especially eating it.
I began studying nutrition because of my love for food and my desire to work in a capacity that helps others. Nutrition seemed like it could bridge the two, and it has. My studies helped me fall in love with food and cooking in a whole new way.
My mission is to empower individuals to achieve digestive wellness. I know all too well how much gastrointestinal troubles can take away from the enjoyment of food and life. I’ve felt the anxiety and fear about not knowing what to eat or how you will feel after eating. Thanks to my studies, that fear is gone and my relationship with food has improved. I now have the knowledge to manage my symptoms and get back to living life. And now it’s time to share that with others.
It can be tough to find balance in our busy lives. We all have a lot on our plates – work, family, social lives, travel, and fitness to name a few. I support you in finding balance so you can live the life you want. You deserve to live without digestive discomfort. I believe that it’s possible for everyone to enjoy nourishing foods that lead to health and make us feel great.
P.D. De verdad, me encanta hablar en español. Encuentro que es tan hermoso y expresivo.
