757: Connecting The Dots With Aimée Suen

Aimée Suen is certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, author, recipe developer, designer, photographer and podcaster.  Her Connecting The Dots With Aimée Suenblog, Small Eats, started in 2013 as a way to share her mostly plant-based recipes and show her friends and family that healthy eating could be tasty after she gained weight in college.
