Maxine Yeung is a nutrition writer who is passionate about eating to nourish the mind, body and soul. As a former pastry cook turned registered dietitian and health and wellness coach, she truly believes all foods fit. Her recommendations are evidence-based and focus on providing both taste and nutrition.

She started her food career working in restaurants and was invited to train under a pastry chef when he noticed she was hanging out in his area of the kitchen and asking questions. After working as a pastry cook for a few years, Maxine realized she wanted to learn even more about food and the science behind it and went on to become a registered dietitian. She has worked at major hospitals in both New York and California, outpatient clinics and in corporate wellness.
