Meet Stephanie McKercher, MS, RDN
I’m the recipe developer and creator behind Grateful Grazer. When I first started this blog back in 2014, I was working as a clinical dietitian in oncology. Searching for a little creative release, I began photographing and sharing a few of my favorite plant-based recipes online.
I soon realized my blog reached more people than I could possibly help one-on-one in a clinical setting. I was also having a lot more fun cooking, teaching myself food photography, and learning the basics of how to run a website. So what started as a side project now gives me my greatest sense of purpose as a media dietitian.
My recipes and quotes are featured on NBC, Fox News, Food Network, Women’s Health, Shape, and many other outlets. (You can read a selection of my media contributions here.) I’ve also had the opportunity to partner with some of my favorite eco-conscious food brands and commodity boards, including Silk and North American Pulses. Grateful Grazer is recognized as a Top 40 Healthy Food Blog and my Garlic Tarragon Roasted Beet Sandwich was the grand prize winner in a recipe contest sponsored by Sabra.
If I can help someone cook one more veggie-forward meal at home, I consider it a successful day at the office. If they love that recipe so much they share it with a friend, even better. This way, we can all make a positive impact together.
About Grateful Grazer
Grateful Grazer is a healthy food blog for people who want to cook with lots of plants. My recipes are tailored for beginners but they’re flavorful enough to satisfy your inner foodie, too.
You can find all of my archived meal and snack ideas in the recipe index. While I don’t follow any specific “diet,” most of my recipes are vegetarian and many are also vegan and dairy-free. For convenience, there are also plenty of one-pot and one-pan dinners, 30-minute meals, and recipes that can easily be prepared in advance. (Feel free to play around with the filters on my recipe page to find what you’re looking for.)
