Follower Sunday: “Thank You Readership!” Accomplished Author, Editor and Pastry Chef–Tracy Stopler—Passes Torch to Mentor, Dietetic Internship Preceptor & Professor Dr. Jennifer Bueche

By Anthony Sepe

Each Sunday, I thank my readership for their loyalty and dedication to my blog, by providing a healthy recipe.  For those that know, this is a healthy repeat, but for those that are unaware and are new to the blog, this is my way of “giving back.”  It is also a way to “Pay it Forward.”  Each Sunday, not only will you have a healthy recipe, but you will have an expert in the field of dietetics, food and nutrition, provide the healthy recipe to you.  It is my pleasure to introduce to you this week, not only my friend and my colleague, but my mentor and dietetic internship preceptor and professor too, Dr. Jennifer L. Bueche, RD, CDN  and her recipe:  Healthful Holiday Eating: Snack Mix.”
