Glad you want to learn more about WhyFoodWorks.
WFW was founded by Sarah Waybright, a nutrition enthusiast with a (healthy) obsession for food. She’s also a “why” person – if she doesn’t know why she’s doing something, she finds it hard to stick to. So for people like her, she wants to explain not just WHAT to eat, by WHY it’s important. That approach also subtly slides you into a positive frame of mind – if you’re focusing on the benefits of food, you’re more likely to seek healthy options, value them, and eat more of the good stuff.
WFW food beliefs:
- Everyone can eat for performance, from athletes to office workers – anyone can choose foods that will improve focus, energy, and make you feel good.
- The same diet is not best for everyone – it depends on lifestyle, personal choice, health conditions, and access to food. Whether it’s lower carb, higher protein, Paleo, DASH, or gluten-free, there IS a best eating pattern for you!
- Food should taste good.
- Food should feel good.
- Food should be valued and shared. WFW donates a Dinner Party to charity or provides one for a group that can’t afford it for every 10 Dinner Parties held!
Sarah did her Master of Science (MS) in Human Nutrition at Drexel University, and a dietetic internship through Utah State University’s distance program to become a Registered Dietitian (RD). She grew up on a dairy farm in Pennsylvania, does pottery as a hobby, and loves to do yoga and kickboxing to stay active…if you want to know anything else, don’t be shy!
