The Foodland Chronicles – Doctor Grandma’s Blog

The Foodland Chronicles is a weekly blog focused on topics related to good health and yummy foods. Doctor Grandma and her team are strong proponents of the Mediterranean Style of Eating - advocating a shift from animal-based foods to plant-based foods and a shift from processed foods to whole, real foods.

The evidence is strong that the overly processed, nutritionally impoverished foods are contributing to health problems including obesity, heart disease and cardiovascular disease. Dr. Grandma’s is dedicated to informing our readers so that they can make choices that position themselves for optimal health.

Yummyness is central to the mission of Dr. Grandma’s. We believe if food does not taste delicious, it will not be eaten frequently and consistently. Dr. Grandma frequently shares recipes to give reader ideas for moving their eating-style toward the Mediterranean-style of eating with whole delicious food prepared to be exceptionally tasty.

The author, Joyce Bunderson (aka: Doctor Grandma), is a registered dietitian with a Masters in Public Health Nutrition and a Doctorate in Public Administration.
She is passionate about health and wellness and believes that with nutritious foods and exercise, people can decrease their risks of common diseases like diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular heart disease and other health problems.
