Naturally a food lover and a die-hard fan of creative chefs. I had to bring a chef as a guest on the show, not only because of her amazing food but about her creativity. Let's throw the magic confetti and have us an amazing show.
WNG: Let’s get to know you?
DIETCHEF: My name is Damilola Orija. I am a Certified Nutritionist from Babcock University with culinary training.
WNG: What inspires the content you put out?
DIETCHEF: 3. I see a lot of misinformation out there and a lot of fear surrounding food and being fat and I want to educate people in way that doesn’t promote fear.
WNG: What is it like being a creative chef? Is it tasking?
DIETCHEF: A creative chef? Yes, it is tasking trying to combine Nutrition and Culinary art in a creative way. Every food I put out took a lot of thinking and planning because it must teach my followers something about nutrition.
