SAMSTARF

I am a nutritional scientist (M. Sc.) and food scientist (B. Sc.) who has a great interest in healthy ingredients and recipes. I love experimenting in the kitchen and making healthy dinners or sweets for myself, my family and my friends. Most of the things that I work with on regular basis are:
– Nutrition consultation: diabetes, allergies, overweight/obesity, gastrointestinal problems, eczema and various skin problems
– Assist with children and food and how to get children to like and eat healthier food
– Assist and teach anyone and everyone to get and eat nutritious food, everything from babies to athletes
– Calculate nutritional and energy values in recipes for restaurants and recipe books
– Recipe development, menu development and product development – using mainly healthy, fresh and preferably organic ingredients
