Several weeks ago one of our newsletter subscribers, Ellen Easley, won a webcam in one of our contests. At the time I thought she had an interesting story and I wanted to share it with our readers. As requested, she submitted a picture and some biographical information and I introduced her to our newsletter and blog readers.
But that was only part of the story. Ellen is the founder of CookingWithEllen.com. Her website and newsletter began during her senior year in college through a morning television show where she hosted a live 8-minute healthy cooking program called “Cooking with Ellen” for WCBI-TV in Columbus, Mississippi. Her emphasis was on establishing and maintaining healthy eating habits through nutritious cooking.
“My goal is to become a registered dietitian and use the skills I have learned to help people improve their lives by improving the way they eat,” Ellen said. “I believe that to be successful at weight management or disease prevention, you must make lifestyle changes for the better. It’s not what we eat at one meal that makes us healthy or not, it’s what we eat every day.”
I was impressed with what I saw and asked her if she had a corporate sponsor for her newsletter. She did not and so starting this month, we made arrangements for Shopping-Bargains.com to sponsor her newsletter.
Through Cooking With Ellen and her other projects, we are pleased to join with her efforts to encourage good nutrition and healthy eating habits in Mississippi and beyond. Ellen’s goal is to start her own business helping people manage their weight and improve the way they eat.
With that in mind I invite you to check out CookingWithEllen.com and subscribe to her newsletter. She also publishes some great recipes!
