Hi there! My name is Gretchen, a registered dietitian married to a third-generation farmer and rancher in central Kansas. He’s over the pastures, and I care for the plates!
As a practicing dietitian, I was shocked by the amount fear of food that exists in the community. I began Pastures and Plates in an effort to challenge common food myths and build confidence in foods being enjoyed by families all around.
I believe in building a balanced plate, even in a meat-and-potatoes world. On this site, I feature photographs of meals I feed my hungry family (and a few recipes!). It is my hope that a better understanding of our food will eliminate some unnecessary fears.
