Amie Valpone

Bio: Amie Valpone, HHC, AADP, editor-in-chief of TheHealthyApple.com, is a Manhattan-based culinary nutritionist, personal chef, professional recipe developer and food writer specializing in simple, gluten-free "clean" recipes for the home cook. Amie works with individuals and groups to guide them through their transition into a healthier lifestyle. She shares her passion for and approach to clean eating by focusing on whole foods and ingredients that are nourishing for you and your body -- after suffering for many years in chronic pain she healed herself with food.

My philosophy: To Change the Way People Eat “Feeding People Food – The Way Food Was Meant To Be”

If I weren't doing what I do now, I'd probably be: Working for Whole Foods Market; I practically live there and I often wonder how I'd survive without their stores- plus I am always so happy when I am inside!

Favorite piece of advice: Eat one ingredient foods with no labels or UPC codes such as an avocado or an apple.
