About Libby MillsDietician Nutritionist, National Speaker and Health Coach
Libby Mills, MS, RDN, LDN, FAND
Culinary Registered Dietitian Nutritionist
I’m a registered dietitian, now. But first, you have to know that I grew up in the southern Midwest where virtually all recipes started with a dollop of bacon grease and a big steak, slice of meat loaf or rack of ribs fill the plate. But as I grew up and began wanting to look and feel my best, I soon realized this wasn’t working.
I searched and read anything that could help and got a lot of conflicting advice. It seemed no matter what I heard or read, I wasted a lot of time and energy trying to separate fad from fiction. I didn’t know who to trust.
It was during this time, that I wanted to REALLY learn about nutrition and I went to University of Missouri, where I earned a degree in Nutrition and Food Science, and later Saint Louis University, where I earned a Masters in Medical Nutrition Therapy and become a Registered Dietitian. In my studies, I read the research. I learn life-changing power of evidence-based nutrition. At last, I discovered health recommendations I could trust.
But not everyone becomes a registered dietitian just because they want nutrition recommendations they can trust. Yet, millions search the Internet every day, like I did. With a foundation in science, I started my private practice to be your registered dietitian, so that you can quit struggling with conflicting information and wasting time.
Most important, I learned how to read the research and translate the science into choices everyday people can make in their everyday lives.
In my search for foods that are good for me, it only took one bite to know that good for me had to taste good—real good. Starting with quality ingredients, whole foods and a zealous quest for really flavorfully delicious food, I have discovered a world of cooking beyond my Midwest roots.
“Whether you meet with Libby personally, in a group or virtually in the kitchen, your experience with Libby will be one you won’t soon forget.”
