Shannon Sliter Satterwhite
A registered dietitian for Southern Living, Food Director Shannon Sliter Satterwhite hears angels sing (her favorite Widespread Panic tunes) whenever she tastes a rich Southern recipe that is naturally good-for-you AND delicious, free from the stereotypical stick of butter or pound of bacon. Sure she indulges in her favorite mac and cheese and Southern-fried anything (in moderation, of course!), but she also celebrates the bounty of fresh ingredients our region has to offer, hoping to make the South a healthier place...one vegetable at a time.
