about zariel

Hola! I am Zariel Grullón, RDN, CDN

Non-Diet Dietitian. Wellness Educator. Endo Warrior. Nutrition Communicator. Content Creator. First Generation Latina. Millennial Wife. Your Comadre in Healing.

As your dedicated guide and dietitian on this wellness journey. I believe in the power of nutrition to spark conversations and ignite the path to healing. However, I’m also acutely aware that there’s much more to your story and your heritage than what’s on your plate.

Growing up I was taught that my body was not good enough. 

“If I just lost a few more pounds then I would love myself enough” was always the rhetoric. That all changed when I stopped listening to others and started listening to me.

For many Latinas like us, wellness isn’t just about counting calories; it’s about reconnecting with our cultural roots, embracing our traditions, and cherishing our unique identities. It’s about ditching la dieta for good and rewriting the narrative around health and happiness.

As a non diet dietitian

My journey in understanding health has been quite an adventure. I’ve worn different hats, from working on farms to clinics, and I’ve seen how life throws so much at us. That’s why I decided to dive into nutrition. I’ve earned Bachelors in Sciences in Biology and Nutrition and finished my DI at CUNY SPH. But it’s not just about my love for food; it’s about my belief that everyone’s wellness journey is as unique as they are. No one-size-fits-all here!

Your journey is uniquely yours, and I’m here to provide the guidance, support, and cultural connection you need to make it a successful and fulfilling one.

Nutrition is a tool that I use to start the conversation and get the healing ball rolling, but it’s not the only piece of the puzzle necessary to ditch la dieta for good.

Rediscovering your heritage, embracing wellness.
