About Michelle Dudash
Michelle Dudash, Registered, Certified Dietitian, is nationally recognized as an expert in teaching people how health and food can happily co-exist.
Happy, healthy family
Through her 18 years of food business experience as a Le Cordon Bleu certified chef having cooked at a five star restaurant and as a private chef for the rich and famous, Michelle knows good food. As a busy working mom with a family, she understands the reality of what millions of moms face every night: putting a healthy dinner on the table in minutes.
Her interest and dedication towards living an eco-friendly lifestyle started while living in Madison, Wisconsin, a city that has long been viewed as a national leader in sustainability. After graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a B.S. degree in dietetics, a few years later she earned her toque from the Scottsdale Culinary Institute.
Teahing healthy habits
Michelle enjoys teaching the public how to eat healthy in simple, yet deliciously entertaining terms. She appears regularly on major Phoenix television programs and has appeared nationally on shows like FOX and Friends. She is frequently quoted in publications like Prevention, Family Circle, SELF, and Woman’s Day, blogs on prenatal nutrition at www.drinkS7.com, and has written articles and recipes for Today’s Diet & Nutrition, ADA Times and Raising Arizona Kids.
Michelle has become a sought after chef nutritionist who continues to prove her skill and accessibility through public speaking to large groups, recipe development, and cooking demonstrations. She motivates employees to live a healthier lifestyle through her presentations at companies like Wells Fargo and consults on providing balanced and delicious food for institutions such as ARAMARK’s corporate dining programs. She received the Recognized Young Dietitian of the Year award from the American Dietetic Association and is a member of the International Association of Culinary Professionals and Les Dames d’ Escoffier.
