Hi there. My name is Kimberly Suddeath and I’m the registered dietitian, author, photographer, and recipe developer behind Unrefined RD. This space is my journal of unrefined, nourishing recipes and inspiration for natural living. My work has been featured in Brit+Co, Men’s Fitness, and Food and Nutrition Magazine, among others. My nutrition experience includes health coaching and clinical nutrition. Welcome!
Unrefined RD began as an endeavor to merge my artistic and scientific loves of photography, writing, food and nutrition. It’s an account of the wholesome, natural recipes I create from my kitchen (which is currently in Oxford, Mississippi) that bring these passions to life.
The essence of my nutrition philosophy is to eat from the earth in the most natural and sustainable way possible. After transitioning to a mostly plant-based diet and avoiding products made with artificial ingredients, I discovered a new level of nourishment in life.
As a nutrition expert, my aim at Unrefined RD is to inspire others to enjoy the pleasure of eating from the earth, whether it’s making a recipe or reading the blog or connecting with each other. My recipes are mostly plant-based, made of natural foods, always flavorful, and easy to make. Although I do not adhere to any diets, there are plenty of vegetarian/vegan, no added sugar, anti-inflammatory, and gluten-free options here.
If you have any questions for me or just want to connect, feel free to email me at kim[at]unrefinedrd[dot]com, or you can use my contact page.
You can also find me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or Pinterest (I’m all over the place these days!). And if you want my weekly recipes sent straight to your e-mail, you can subscribe here. Any way you choose, I would love to connect!
