Sonali Ruder is a board certified emergency medicine physician, recipe developer, blogger and bona fide foodie. Her passion for food began several years ago during her residency training. She found herself spending her free time exploring the culinary scene in New York City and experimenting in the kitchen. In 2007, she entered a recipe contest on a whim and ended up being selected from thousands of entrants to compete on a cooking competition on the Food Network. Since then, she hasn’t stopped cooking, and has gone on to win several national contests. In 2009, Sonali decided to take her passion for cooking one step further by enrolling in culinary school at the Institute of Culinary Education. While she was a student, she started her popular food blog The Foodie Physician where she uses her medical and culinary backgrounds to help readers create meals that are nutritious and full of flavor. She enjoys discussing the health benefits of foods, and encourages people to know what they're eating so that they can make smart food choices all day long. She also enjoys the occasional splurge -- after all, eating is one of life’s greatest pleasures. In addition to practicing medicine, Sonali also develops recipes and is a contributing writer for several national magazines, cookbooks and websites. She recently moved to sunny Fort Lauderdale where she and her husband are expecting their first child and future foodie.
