My name is Maria Tadic and I’m a nutrition expert, die-hard foodie and the author of the blog Bean A Foodie – A Culinary Quest for Nutrition. I’m 20-something living in Northern, VA with my husband Dario and our English bulldog, Medo. I love cooking/feeding my husband – he eats pretty much whatever I make and somehow seems impressed with even the simplest of my dishes. And since I’ve always been interested in health and nutrition, he’s enjoyed the occasional nutrition tip along with dinner (or so he says). But besides food, I enjoy spending time outdoors, reading and hanging out with family and friends.
