Your Healthy Kitchen

Hello! I’m Rita Carey Rubin, your host for Your Healthy Kitchen!  

Healthy eating and living has always been a passion of mine, and I enjoy using my culinary experience and nutrition education to help others learn to eat well. Over the last 25 years, I’ve had the opportunity to receive professional chef training, open my own restaurant, and work as a personal chef and caterer, in addition to my work as a Registered Dietician and Certified Diabetes Educator at the Pendleton Centers at YRMC.  I am also a freelance writer and have written dozens of articles on health and nutrition for a variety of publications, including Diabetes Self-Management and Today’s Dietician, as well as for the Community Outreach Department at YRMC.

My experience in the kitchen and classroom has taught me that a diet filled with foods which support good health and help us live a vital, active life, doesn’t have to be bland, boring, or expensive. On the contrary, healthy meals can and should be affordable and packed with flavors that leave you feeling truly satisfied – which is what I strive to teach.

So, creating and hosting a cooking show dedicated to healthy eating is a perfect fit, and a wonderful way for me to share easy and delicious recipes for nutrient and flavor-packed meals with more people!

Each Your Healthy Kitchen video will explore how to use a variety of nutritious ingredients in everyday meals and will also demonstrate how affordable healthy meals can be. I’ll include cooking and shopping tips, and will help you learn some simple skills that will get you cooking and enjoying time in the kitchen immediately. All of our recipes, nutrition information, and cost per serving will be posted online, for your use and convenience.

If you want to learn more about the community health and wellness resources available through YRMC's Pendleton Centers, we would be happy to talk with you. Just call one of our numbers below to speak with our staff.      

We are having a great time putting these shows together for you and hope you enjoy them too! We’ll see you soon, in Your Healthy Kitchen!
