Emily Cook, a Registered Dietitian, owns a private practice in Pearisburg, Virginia, that specializes in one-on-one nutritional counseling. In our discussion, Emily explains how the foods we eat impact our overall well-being and she also dispels some of the common myths about what it takes to eat healthy and maintain a well-balanced diet. (Sorry, but you really can do it without ‘breaking the bank.’)

A wife and mother of three, Emily also shares tips about how to do meal planning and grocery shopping during the COVID-19 pandemic.
