Edible Potential is *ABOUT: Making the Space Around the Plate Great. My blog is currently transitioning to more things related to the kitchen and less about recipes & nutrition advice.
FUN FACT: The cleanest kitchen I've ever been in (and it's been several years ago now) is the homeless shelter where these two met. True story.
I am Sandi G: Saved by Jesus Christ. Registered Dietitian. Happy wife and mom.
I've counseled many many sweet people during my career in the nutrition biz, not limited to - but mainly people with weight issues, heart problems and those who want to be bigger, faster, stronger. Maybe even a few celebs and/or their parents.
But at this time of my life, I'm enjoying more time in the kitchen with my sweet family. That's what this blog is about to be, all about. I'm sooo excited!
*Since my blog is currently in transition -please be patient with my progress and continue to visit. I'll update this page again soon to give more details. updated Fall 2013
I live in: Maui, I wish. I really live in Texas-a part of Tornado Alley. And yes both me and my husband have actually been in a tornado but not at the same time. Him: 2001 Me: 2012
1. I'm an extroverted introvert.
2. I'm a late bloomer. Slow to get there but once I've got it, I'm good.
3. I smile and say hi a lot.
4. I find humor in almost everything. And you will definitely see me trying to be funny in my blog posts.
5. I'm a more behind the scenes kind of gal. I'd rather be the one behind the camera - but with great hair, makeup and outfit. Especially the shoes.
6. I have a thing for palm trees.
