Around the Plate was started by Kati Mora, MS, RD in December 2009. As a dietitian completing a MS in Dietetics & Nutrition, Kati began to notice that although nutrition advice is easy to find, very little of it is based on scientific research. Similar to other nutrition websites out there, Around the Plate was designed to connect the public with nutrition experts and other food and health experts with assurance the advice is both accurate  and provided in a way that makes sense and is easy to incorporate into one's own life.
