Hi, I’m Charlotte—Mosaic’s new dietitian! I’m a Baltimore-based Registered Dietitian with a Master’s in Nutrition, author of The Plant Forward Solution: Reboot Your Diet, Lose Weight & Build Lifelong Health by Eating More Plants & Less Meat, and owner of Shaped by Charlotte. I run a website and social media accounts on which I cover a wide variety of nutrition topics, including common nutrition and wellness myths, and share nutritious, plant-forward recipes. I also work with clients one-on-one and in a virtual group program to help empower them to make healthful eating choices.
As a Registered Dietitian, I’ve made it my mission to educate, inspire, and empower others to shape their eating habits and relationship with food. My approach focuses on silencing the noise and teaching flexible, sustainable eating habits that emphasize incorporating more, healthful plant-based foods into the diet—or what I like to call a “plant forward” approach. As a former paleo dieter turned carbophobe turned vegetarian and everything in-between—I’ve both seen and lived it all. My nutrition philosophy as it currently stands has greatly evolved from what it was as a fresh-out-of-school and naive dietitian, who was easily influenced by whoever was shelling out the latest and greatest nutrition nonsense. I now champion fact over fad and take an evidence-based approach to nutrition. And the evidence is clear—there’s one basic nutrition concept that a wealth of evidence supports and that most experts and leading authorities in the controversial and increasingly confusing world of nutrition and health now agree on, which is to eat more plants. Not necessarily plants only, just more of them.
And that is why I’m so excited to be working with Mosaic, who has made getting more healthful plant foods into your diet their mission as well! As Mosaic’s dietitian, I’ll be bringing my plant-forward approach to nutrition to their lineup. I’ll address any dietary questions from the team and you, the customer, and will provide insight on nutritionals for Mosaic’s new and existing meals. My goal is to help them help you eat more plants—whether you’re vegetarian, vegan, flexitarian, pescatarian, or none of the above! It’s our shared belief that everyone can enjoy nutritious, plant-centric meals. And I’m a huge fan of the Mosaic meals myself—the Pozole Verde Soup, Peanut Tofu Bowl, and Tangy Thai Stir Fry are a few of my favorites.
