Amanda Trevelino is a writer and nutritionista certified in plant-based nutrition and passionate about living well. Having spent years in the public relations and magazine writing businesses, she’s seen more spin than a disco ball. Along the way, she’s dined in secret Havana paladares, on private Caribbean islands, at New York’s James Beard House (bone marrow flan, anyone?), and with critic John Mariani; not to mention experiencing the thrill of interviewing fitness diva Jane Fonda, or the joy of shoveling compost for her favorite organic farmer.
She now prefers the simple power of just-picked produce, mornings on a yoga mat, and the prospect of unlimited dark chocolate. As the parent of a VeggieKid , she experiences the importance of encouraging the next generation to be more responsible than the last, and to question everything they’re taught. As a sister of a cancer survivor, she longs to advocate for greater awareness of self-health, and again to question everything taught.
Amanda is a Yoga Alliance RYT 200 yoga teacher, has been a featured BlogHer and worked as contributing editor for The Atlantan, Modern Luxury Publishing; feature writer for Veranda; contributor to Southern Living, Atlanta Magazine Home, Atlanta Business Chronicle, Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles. She’s been a PR consultant, public relations director for Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts and public relations director for Atlanta Ballet. She studied at University of Georgia, and with eCornell.
Built in 2005 after a previous mid-century modern house failed to survive the impact of Hurricane Ivan, Amanda Trevelino and husband Dean, rebuilt this contemporary modern live/work in one of Atlanta’s oldest neighborhoods. Today it serves as the offices of Full DISHclosure, several experimental gardens, a colony of bees, a VeggieKid and one carnivorous canine.
