Eating your best isn’t always easy. In fact, it can be down right difficult; not to mention confusing, frustrating, and lonely. That’s why we think its essential to have a nutrition expert in your corner. Someone you can answer those tough nutrition questions you have, keep you accountable, and inspire you to have a little fun with your food. After all, eating well isn’t just about the nutrients. Its about the experience too.
At Around the Plate, we have an amazing team of dietitians who are ready to help you out. From answering your toughest food and nutrition related questions here on Around the Plate to meeting up with you one-on-one, our team of nutrition experts are here to make a difference for you and your family.
A few months ago, Sarah Schuetz, RDN joined our team. Sarah is not only our West Michigan Nutrition Expert, but the Store Director at thePlate Boutique in Grand Rapids, MI. Sarah wears many hats, but you’ll often find her sharing nutrition wisdom at in-store demos and cooking classes held at thePlate Boutique in Grand Rapids once month.
Today we’re excited to welcome another amazing dietitian to our team. Meet Michelle Voss, RDN, our new Central Michigan Nutrition Expert!

What 3 foods can always be found in your pantry?

What’s your favorite foodie locale?
“Fresh, local food is something I am passionate about, so my favorite foodie place would have to be the farmer’s market.”

“Definitely a sharp chef’s knife for chopping veggies!”
When you have the day off, how do you enjoy your time?
“I try to keep active in my spare time by going to group exercise classes, running races with friends and going for walks. I also spend a lot of time looking for and trying new recipes found on Pinterest!”
