    Original Message From June 2012 below:

    Hi Friends,

    When I started this blog five years ago (1,998 posts ago!), I never imagined it would be so fulfilling and nourishing.

    Small Bites not only gave me a platform to share my views and upset the nutrition world’s apple cart, but also connected me with people in 105 countries. This blog opened doors for me I didn’t even think I could knock on.

    I have always valued speaking one’s truth. And, right now, my truth is that my time and mental energy need to be focused in a slightly different direction.

    I am not disappearing. I will continue to write and regularly contribute to this country’s discussion on issues of food, nutrition, and food policy. And, of course, my Twitter account will remain highly active. I have not lost my passion or drive; it’s simply become clear to me that it is time to close this particular chapter.

    To all you Registered Dietitians in training: please remember that you  have a voice. We are nutrition professionals, not food industry public relations experts. Don’t allow yourselves to be bullied into silence by industry shills, and don’t ever allow “the science” (often paid for by those with deep pockets) to trump common sense.  Our profession’s reputation is hanging by a thread, and we desperately need people to show the world Registered Dietitians are not Big Food’s and Big Ag’s puppets.

    To everyone else: thank you for your support of Small Bites over the past five years. Onward and upward! There is more to come.

    PS: This blog is one of my  proudest accomplishments, and I will leave it up so it can continue to be a one-of-a-kind resource for anyone who wants nutrition information with a unique voice and an approach that takes into account the politics that shape our food system.
