Judy Barbe’s interest in food started early. She realized later that her enthusiasm was unique: most 10-year-olds don’t pore over the Betty Crocker Cookbook for a slumber party menu… she served ice cream-stuffed cantaloupe.
With a master’s degree in food science and human nutrition, she has been exploring food ever since. She is the author of two books: Your 6-Week Guide to LiveBest, Simple Solutions for Fresh Food & Well-Being and LiveBest Seasonally.
She delivers food, nutrition and health information through digital, television, radio, and print publications. Her recipes and recommendations have been featured on many sites including CookingLight.com, ReaderDigest.com, Prevention.com, and TheHealthy.
As a food creative, she shares information through her website, original recipes, speaking engagements, and online cooking classes.
She has been recognized as an outstanding dietitian and is a past chair of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Food and Culinary Professionals dietary practice group and current member of the House of Delegates.
