She then started writing about a healthier approach to eating for magazines and radio, eventually becoming editor-in-chief of Natural Solutions, a magazine dedicated to the healing benefits of whole foods and green living. She now writes the Conscious Kitchen column for Yoga International magazine, contributes to Natural Health magazine, and blogs at Door to Door Organics’ The Good Food Blog.
