Conversation 91: The Story, Journey and Passion of Chef Jen Plaggemars, RD
“I don’t ever want my job to feel like a chore. I want to actually enjoy it. I’ve finally gotten to the point where that is ok. You can make events on your calendar better because you’re not rushing.” - Chef Jen Plaggemars, RD
Today’s conversation is with Jen Plaggemars, a registered dietitian who fulfilled a dream to go back to culinary school and become a chef.
Do you ever scroll through social media to find a recipe for something but you’re not quite sure what that something is? Then you come across photos that start to make you hungry and you must know what the recipe is? Insert Chef Jen. Jen and I worked for the same company for few years, but we really didn’t know each other until I saw a photo of these gorgeous fried plantain chips with a chipotle pineapple guacamole dip and I wanted, no...needed, to be her friend. She is a dietitian and is now following a dream of being a personal chef and has created a pretty delicious life that I am excited to share with you.
Please enjoy my conversation with Jen.
