I have been a nutritionist by profession since 1990. I have worked in the clinical area such as hospitals, centers for patients of dialysis, weight control clinics, cancer hospitals and private practices to provide counseling and nutritional guidance to patients. The private practice area has given me the opportunity to develop skills in the business area such as managing the rates of medical plans, office rent payments and budget management. As part of my work, I have done consulting wellness programs to pharmacies as well as conferences to professional groups and the general population. Some of the interests that have occupied my professional performance are: education in nutrition, physical wellness and the prevention of harmful clinical conditions since these relate to the eating habits of puerto ricans. The greatest causes of death in Puerto Rico are cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, cerebrovascular accidents and cancer. My motivation is this: to be part of the solution in the area of wellbeing and give people access to the knowledge needed in the process of selecting healthier food choices. With this reasoning, it seemed logical to create a seasoning that will contribute to the health ofthe consumer, without sacrificing its flavor. From this, “Adobo Mi Sabor” was born.
