This year, Holley has a host of exciting projects in the works including increased speaking engagements, media spokesperson commitments, and more exciting recipe development, as well as a special feature in the 11th season of Martha Bakes on PBS Food. The season launched in January 2019 and Holley’s episode is slated to run this month March 2019).

The segment focuses on ‘pantry milks,’ specifically evaporated milk, sweetened condensed milk (Martha’s guilty pleasure), nonfat dried milk, and shelf stable milk. She and I take a look at the history of these pantry milks, their unique properties and nutrition, and, of course, how to use them when baking.” And with this, it’s no surprise, her advice to a young dietitian just starting out is simply, “don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and try something new.” Finding something that excites you even if it goes against the norm, and knowing that although there are boundaries within the profession, “the sky really is the limit, as food is and always will be, EVERYWHERE!” With such a big year in store, Holley laughs at the anxiety she felt when faced with her greatest challenge many years ago – walking away from her full-time job with Time Inc., where she loved being the Food and Nutrition Editor of and CookingLight. com. Yet today as her own entrepreneur, Holley relishes in the chaos and demands of having no two days (or clients) alike. “I love being kept on my toes trying to keep up with trends and finding new, clever ways to deliver important and relevant information to my audiences,” says Holley. © Dietitian Connection LEARN MORE: @HolleyGraingerNutrition @holleygrainger @holleygrainger 11 Infuse | March 2019
