Serving the Broccoli Gods: A Reading with Mary Purdy
Despite having a deep affection for food throughout her childhood, Mary Purdy’s definitive choice to become a dietitian came in her early thirties as her father recovered from a serious illness. When the hospital nutritionist recommended her father grab a Big Mac to regain weight, Purdy knew she’d found a field in which she could make a difference. Serving the Broccoli Gods is packed with nutritional tips wrapped around the lighthearted and humorous tale of Purdy’s journey of transitioning from a gritty New York City actor to a registered dietitian. There's humor, a few life lessons and even a love story to keep you entertained.
Mary Purdy, Integrative Registered Dietitian was in private practice for 8 years & now works at Arivale in Seattle, WA as a Coach and Clinical Education Lead providing nutrition and lifestyle counseling to clients using personalized genetic data and functional labs. She is also Chair of Dietitians in Integrative and Functional Medicine and host of the web series & podcast “Mary’s Nutrition Show.” She loves all vegetables except zucchini.
