Viewers see these strategies in action as Ellie and her team visit individuals and families to solve specific food challenges - whether at home or in the workplace - and offering delicious recipes and practical tips along the way. Ellie also discusses the concept of volumetrics, the method of incorporating low calorie, high volume ingredients into recipes to make them more filling.

She has appeared as a guest expert on dozens of national television programs, including "The Today Show," "Good Morning America," "The CBS Early Show," CNN, "ABC News Now "and "Dr. Oz," as well as hosted The Food Network's hit series "Healthy Appetite."
