Monica Reinagel MS LDN

aka Monica Reinagel

I’m a licensed nutritionist with a Master’s of Science in Human Nutrition.  I also went to culinary school.  But long before all of that, I went to music school and studied to be an opera singer–which is what I spent the first half of my professional life doing.  (Hence my alter-ego, The Nutrition Diva over there ==>)

These days, I spend most of my time writing and speaking about food and nutrition. More information about my keynote speeches is available through the Macmillan Speakers Bureau.  In addition to this blog, I have a weekly nutrition podcast, a blog on The Huffington Post, a handful of books, and am lucky enough to be a regular guest on shows like the TODAY show, Doctor Oz show, and NPR’s Morning Edition. I even still manage to squeeze in the occasional singing gig.   On days off,  you’re likely to find me cooking, gardening, playing tennis, or reading on the porch.  I live in Baltimore, MD.
