Peggy Korody, RD, CLT: I am a registered dietitian in private practice in Rancho Santa Fe, California. I completed my Bachelor of Science in Applied Arts and Sciences, Foods and Nutrition Degree from San Diego State University. This was followed by a 900+ hour dietetic internship through Utah State University. I am a member of the American Dietetic Association, American Diabetes Association, the California and San Diego Dietetic Associations, and the San Diego Nutrition Network.
I have a private practice, RD4Health® Nutrition Counseling, LLC and I am a part-time Clinical Dietitian at a local hospital and work with a variety of patients. I also handle the nutritional needs for a variety of outpatients at Behavioral Health in San Marcos. I utilize current scientific nutrition information to provide personalized counseling and group education in an effort to create overall optimal health.
I am a certified LEAP (Lifestyle Eating And Performance) Therapist, helping patients overcome health problems associated with adverse food reactions. I use a variety of methods to help patients identify their trigger foods, including patient history, Mediator Release Testing (MRT), and elimination diets, which can have a tremendous positive impact in my patient’s lives.
In addition, I have a passion for healthy cooking and in 2003 started a local Gourmet Cooking club. I have designed menus, planned, and prepared the food for local events, such as a Cinco de Mayo dinner for 80 guests. I also have considerable experience in recipe analysis and recipe conversion.

Professional Membership & Affiliations
Past Volunteer Work
Family Recovery Center (FRC), Oceanside. FRC is a facility for women with children who have a drug and/or alcohol addiction. I taught cooking/nutrition classes to the women, which included preparing menus consisting of a salad/appetizer, entrée, and dessert. I then analyzed the menu for cost and nutritional content. These were two-hour classes starting with the cooking and picking a nutritional topic to discuss as the women ate the newly prepared meal.
