Award-winning Nutrition Author
Dr. Karen Eich Drummond, EdD, RDN, LDN
I specialize in writing about foods and nutrition for anyone from 8 years old to over 80. I enjoy making nutrition accessible and practical for a variety of audiences, and maintaining a voice that is independent of the food industry. My publications range from a top culinary nutrition college textbook to a trade book on healthy cooking, educational cookbooks for children, and short articles for websites. In addition to writing, I teach nutrition to nursing students at Gwynedd Mercy University in Gwynedd Valley, Pennsylvania.
Engaging students to apply knowledge.
My college textbooks include the top-selling Nutrition for Foodservice and Culinary Professionals (9th edition), co-authored with a chef Lisa and published by John Wiley & Sons, Inc., and Nutrition Research: Concepts and Applications, co-authored with other Registered Dietitians and published by Jones & Bartlett Learning.
Accessible and practical for a variety of audiences.
In addition to writing on healthy cooking, I have co-authored a series of fun cookbooks for children in which they learn about science, health, math, and history through foods and cooking.
An independent, experienced perspective on nutrition writing.
After writing books for college students, nutrition professionals, and children, I am switching gears to author short pieces on food and nutrition for the general public. I am writing on a variety of food and nutrition topics for consumer magazines.
