Marissa Meshulam is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist currently living and working in NYC. Born and raised in Chicago, IL, Marissa moved to NYC in 2018 to finish school to become an RD. She has a BS in Nutrition and Dietetics from the University of Wisconsin and a Masters of Science in Clinical Nutrition from New York University.
While completing her dietetic internship at the Bronx VA Hospital, Marissa saw firsthand how a lack of proper nutrition can lead to chronic disease. During her year at the VA, her interest in using food as prevention grew. Marissa’s true passion lies in incorporating healthy foods earlier on as a means of avoiding certain diseases.
Her food philosophy is simple and inclusive.
Instead of categorizing foods as “good” or “bad” and spending time talking about foods we shouldn’t eat, she works with clients to help them eat more real, whole foods that fit their preferences. She avoids “miracle foods”, and emphasizes eating more real foods that are nourishing and enjoyable. “After all, life is complicated, but food does not have to be.”
