Chelsea Torres, RD, MS

Alternative Text

Chelsea Torres is a Registered Dietitian with a love for teaching. She believes that proper nutrition is essential for optimal health and allows people to do the things they love that make life meaningful. Her favorite part of being a Dietitian is sharing the good news that eating a healthy diet does not have to difficult. Her mission is to help others live a full life by showing them that they can overcome their personal barriers to healthy eating.

As a Military spouse, Chelsea has the unique opportunity to travel and learn about nutrition and food from the perspective of people from diverse backgrounds, cultures, and regions. She currently works as a traveling Dietitian, taking assignments at hospitals around the United States. She not only helps patients with their immediate needs but prepares them to make healthy choices specific to their medical conditions once they leave her care.

Chelsea’s next destination is Okinawa, Japan, where the diet of the natives is famously touted for supporting the world’s greatest number of Centurions. She is excited about this new adventure overseas and hopes to learn from the culture and diet of the locals.

In her free time, Chelsea loves to cook, crochet, be outdoors, and spend time with her husband and puppy.
