This episode of Vive Nutrition Radio was bananas! JD Muraida is a classically trained chef living in Austin, TX. During his time at Le Cordon Bleu, he was recruited to work at Walt Disney World upon finishing his degree. Working with local produce in the kitchen and having knowledge of nutrition, this ignited a fire within JD to educate cooks and chefs about the nutritional value of the food being made. He was then recruited to help open the kitchen of a new hotel in Austin. In 2017, JD returned to finish his degree in Nutrition & Dietetics where he has been working to curate a consulting firm to bring more dietitians into the culinary field. While working on his degree, JD works as a private chef with his company - Nutrinary.
