A Word From Molly Cleary, MS, RD, CDN, CNSC

Although I do not label myself as vegetarian/pescetarian, I do limit meat consumption, mostly as a means to promote environmental sustainability. The recipes you'll see from me are mostly Mediterranean, as well as some that are chronic kidney disease friendly or plant-based. I have a passion for showing others how healthy eating can be both affordable, attainable, and delicious.
