I would like to introduce myself to you and let you get to know me. My name is Meredith Hartlage and I am a Holistic Nutritionist and Adjunct Professor of Nutrition at Washington and Jefferson College in Pittsburgh, PA. I came to know the value of holistic living through my love of food and cooking. Starting with simply eating “right”, I moved to not only preparing my own foods from scratch but also growing what I could in my own garden. I was amazed at the impact of simply reconnecting myself, and my needs to the earth.
