Who We Are

The Chef Marshall O’Brien Group is made up of chefs, dietitians, researchers, writers and videographers. The role of the researchers and dietitians is to understand current best nutrition practices and translate them into the right foods to produce the desired results. Since people will only eat the right foods if they taste good, our chefs use the recommended foods to create recipes that taste great. We call this “Putting Delicious in Nutritious.”
