A registered, certified dietitian has come to Clinton.

Marcy Gaston, owner of Whidbey Island Nutrition, is bringing her long career in culinary arts to the island. The business offers chronic disease management for such illnesses as diabetes, heart disease, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, celiac disease, and weight loss, through nutrition. She will also teach personalized, individual and small group cooking lessons. Personal chef services are available from Gaston as well, coming to a client’s home once a week and cooking a few meals at a time.

She relocated to Whidbey from Cincinnati, Ohio, where she conducted her dietetic internship after receiving a master’s degree in sustainable food systems from Montana State University.

“Through teaching and writing, Gaston is committed to bridging the gap between nutrition and sustainability,” according to a news release announcing Gaston’s service in Clinton. “She understands the importance of nutrition as well as issues of sustainability in the food system. She looks forward to working on Whidbey Island in making a difference in people’s lives.”

Gaston has articles and recipes published in Food and Nutrition Magazine and the Stone Soup Blog, as well as her personal blog, Cooking Sustainably. She co-wrote “Lentils: Gems in the Treasure State” with fellow Montana State University graduate students and a professor.

Gaston can be reached at Cookingsustainably@gmail.com or 513-814-7828.
