What They're Saying

Sandy has brought a completely new perspective on food to our family. I started consulting with her when my 3-year old refused anything other than pasta and bread. Now I frequently get puzzled looks from parents when they notice him eating herring and olive tapenade (big favorites!). Sandy's behavioral recommendations in addition to nutritional science resonated particularly well with me. Her advice was practical and simple to follow; I was surprised to learn how easy and satisfying it can be to eat healthy."Patrizia M./Financial Industry Entrepreneur, Parent

I came into your talk feeling like I knew a great deal about "real food" and was blown away by how much I learned in just one evening.  Your presentation was concise, informative and entertaining. I never felt like you were denigrating the food choices parents sometimes have sometimes make "on the fly" and provided your audience with workable solutions to everyday food issues.

Sandy did a great job of assessing my current level of health, then encouraging me to improve my nutrition in a reasonable way. She set the perfect pace for me. I became much more conscious of my eating choices. I loved being introduced to new recipes and new cooking methods. I never would have guessed that my whole family (kids included) would embrace so many new (and delicious) foods.Margi P./Founder and President Pulseback Marketing, Parent

Ms. Papanek has both a scientific and intuitive knowledge of nutrition. Her solid grasp of the scientific facts of nutrition and sympathetic understanding of human tastes make her an empathetic clinician. Her counsel of changes in food choices span the needs of managing lifestyle disorders to improving fitness in healthy persons. Her suggestions are in line with the eating habits of her clients, hence facilitating their acceptance. As a 66 year old south Indian vegetarian grandmother from Bangalore, I was delighted to learn from her the nutritional value of south Indian vegetarian cooking.Shobini R/Psychology Ph.D. and former Department Head of Clinical Psychology,

Sandy's approach is pragmatic. She doesn't just give out diet lists, but really works on understanding the client's particular situation and developing an approach that works within those boundaries. She teaches tools and approach, rather than just lecturing what to eat. She is thoroughly inspiringRachel T.

I want to tell you what an excellent speaker you are. I was thinking that during your whole presentation. I can remember your entire talk because you speak so clearly, and your material was so well organized and made such sense.Jennifer C./Parent

I just wanted to drop you a quick line and let you know you your talk truly inspired me yesterday. Last night for dinner I made Chicken breasts pan seared with just a little lemon, white wine and olive oil, broccoli roasted in the oven (which was so easy) with butter, garlic, salt & pepper and mashed potato. My family LOVED it, everyone said I hit the ball out of the park and there was not a morsel of food left. I cook a lot and am constantly struggling trying to find things and different things everyone will eat. I feel like the kids eat 3 things, despite my efforts. Everything you all suggested yesterday was spot on and I am going to try to implement it more, even if only a few nights a week. Tracy H./Media Senior Project Manager, Parent

Since I began working with Sandy 4 months ago, I am thrilled to say I have more energy, happier and brighter moods, I don't get sick and my sleep is more restful. Truly a win-win for me!Ashlee M/Musician

I spoke to my mother, who said that she is following all your recommendations for healthy eating in Bombay where she is staying with my sister. My sister and brother-in-law join her in thanking you! My mother made me promise that I would convey their thanks to you - my mother is feeling well and full of energy, and she is sure the diet you recommended is helping my sister recover from the C-section, and helping the baby as well.Kamakshi R./Parent

I wanted to thank you for pulling me into this direction.  I feel so much better I can't even describe it.

I wanted to reach out to you -- just to share a book that supports
EVERYTHING you told me.  The author is an MD/Phd at Harvard Med school, so I hope she is
bringing some real legitimacy to the diet/environmental links in
autism (that this area needs!).
