Contributions from a Dietitian

Hello All! I’d like to take a moment to introduce myself. My name’s Sara Lahti, I am a Registered Dietitian who will be contributing to the Brown Family Farm blog this season. I’m looking forward to a great growing season and sharing some great information with you in regard to the produce you receive this year from both a nutrition perspective and the kitchen. A little about me. As I said, I’m a Registered and Licensed Dietitian. I obtained my bachelor’s degree from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (Go Big Red!) and my Master’s in Nutrition from the University of Minnesota. I currently work as a Clinical Dietitian with Allina Health at both Buffalo and Cambridge Hospitals and with CentraCare Health at St. Cloud Hospital providing nutrition support and diet education to the patients. I also run my own part-time consulting business (Sisu Nutrition Consulting), focusing on sports and nutrition counseling. I transitioned back into clinical nutrition after spending several years in food service as a Food Service Director for senior living facilities. I love to cook and bake and only wish I had an industrial kitchen of my own.

I was excited when Jodi reached out for additional help in writing the blog this summer as I have a strong interest in fresh, local foods. In addition to my nutrition degree, I studied agronomy and horticulture in Nebraska and worked with the UofM Extension as a Master Gardener in the Twin Cities for three years. When I’m not working I love to spend time with my husband and our two young children, Noah (18 months) and Ruth (3 months). I love to cook, bake and work in my garden. I also enjoy running and hiking and my kids have taken on the role of training buddies, riding along with me as I work towards finishing my 7th marathon this fall.

I look forward to sharing delicious recipes with everyone, and a little bit of nutrition information too, this summer!

-Sara Lahti MS, RD, LD

My daughter and granddaughter are sharing a share with me. We are looking forward to getting fresh produce, finding great recipes to use, and how to store our goodies. We are very excited as this is the first time we have participated. Thanks for sharing your knowledge.
