Recently I had the great opportunity to participate as consulting ecological nutritionist with:
QUE RICO ES – Que Rico ES is a national consumers´ food campaign. I designed and trained the facilitators for a hands-on participatory workshop - how to balance your plate - that is carried out in markets, food fairs and community groups throughout Ecuador. I also helped design a pamphlet with graphics to support the message shared in these participatory events.
Ecuador´s national planning board (SENPLADES) – Based on a national study, I provided a nutritional analysis of the Ecuadorian cultural eating habits and created diets for a national study to link the agricultural sector with the nutritional needs of the country.
Heifer Ecuador – Through hands-on cooking workshops, I developed a cooking and eating manuel to promote the consumption of healthy products by local, small-scale farmers and producers and to trained them to be facilitators of similar workshops in their communities. .
World Food Programme – In a partnership with various local communities, I researched traditional, healthy recipes. These recipes are now being published in the Ecuadorean press
OXFAM Italia -- Developed a cookbook from work with indigenous groups about the preparation and use of andean products.
EDUCA – I was contracted to develop the nutritional content for 40 radio programs. Educa develops educational radio programs sponsored by the Ecuadorian government. Because it is a public service, the content is featured on all radio stations throughout Ecuador. Thus my nutritional, delicious voice is heard all over the country.
