The holidays are a busy and celebration-filled time of year! We begin to anticipate the joys (and the MANY enticing dishes) of the season. It’s important that we prepare ourselves for these inevitable temptations, but still honor our favorite traditions and stay present with those we love. In this program we will go over ways to make smart choices as we celebrate the season. Let’s enjoy the holidays while keeping the momentum of our health goals through the new year and beyond!
About the Presenter
Taryn Krietzman completed her Bachelor’s degree and Dietetic Internship with the University of Massachusetts. After working as manager of the ‘Healthy & Sustainable Option’ dining facility at her alma mater, Taryn returned home to NJ to manage a plant-forward café at Rutgers. When the pandemic upended her career in food service, Taryn shifted gears from serving food to growing it. At the end of the growing season, she became the coordinator and driver of a Mobile Food Pantry. These two positions were incredibly transformative in igniting her passion for learning about agricultural food systems, public health and the links where the two meet. Taryn now works as a Community Nutrition Educator with RWJBarnabas Hamilton. She gets the most joy from seeing her pupils light up when learning where real food comes from and how transformative food can be.
