Valley Nutritionist Named Finalist To Become Next Eat Like Me Blogger For Condé Nast’s SELF
Preparing healthful meals every day can be time consuming and frustrating. That is why Michelle Dudash, a registered dietitian in Phoenix and seasoned chef, is competing in a blog-off for SELF magazine to contribute positive ideas for dealing with this ongoing struggle. The blog targets readers who are looking for new, healthy meal and snack ideas that work in the real world, not just in test kitchens.
Dudash was selected by SELF editors as one of only four finalists nationwide to have the chance to become their next nutrition blogger. “We’re excited to have Michelle as one of our expert candidates to become the next Eat Like Me blogger, bringing her culinary knowledge and nutrition expertise to SELF.com’s 3 million monthly visitors,” said Kristen Dollard, SELF’s Digital Director. “Our readers have made this SELF’s most popular blog, and it’s the fans who will determine their next blogger.” The four dietitians will participate in a blog-off May 16 through June 10, 2011. The winner will win a yearlong contract to write for Eat Like Me, a nutrition blog devoted to the foods a registered dietitian eats each day. Michelle will be blogging on May 18, 19, 30, 31, and June 8. Arizonans can help this valley dietitian earn a star on the national map, since the winner will be chosen 100% by which nutrition blogger receives the most reader votes.
“I’m passionate about making nutritious food taste fantastic and I understand how challenging this can be day in, day out,” said Dudash. “I’m excited to share an inside look into how I maintain healthy eating in a delicious and enjoyable way.”
As a writer, recipe developer and local television personality, Dudash has been committed to teaching and inspiring people for more than 10 years about how to eat well. She is as comfortable in a studio kitchen as she is in her home kitchen where she continually creates and shares simple, practical recipes that contribute to the health and well-being of people across the country.
Readers can vote online starting May 16 through June 10, 2011 at www.surveymonkey.com/s/SELFEatLikeMeVote. Readers may vote as many times as they like.
