Ashely Koff RD

Ashley Koff is an internationally renowned registered dietitian on a mission to improve the health of people across America and beyond through raising public awareness of the value of quality eating. A self-described “Qualitarian,” Koff advocates eating the better quality foods available—choosing whole foods over processed parts, natural over made in a chemistry lab and organic whenever possible to avoid hormones, synthetic fertilizers, GMOs and harmful pesticides—to optimally fuel the body. She created the Ashley Koff Approved (AKA) list as a tool to help healthcare practitioners and health-interested consumers choose groceries, dietary supplements, and prepared food options of better quality. Her selections are based on rigorous standards of nutrition, sourcing methods, and marketing integrity, backed by extensive research and globe-spanning travels to get the whole food story.

Widely sought for her knowledge and ability to translate nutrition science into practical and motivating messages, Koff regularly appears on national television programs, including The Dr. Oz Show, The Doctors, and national and local news programs. She is also frequently featured in and writes articles for national publications, including The New York Times, O!: The Oprah Magazine, Every Day with Rachael Ray, Redbook, and Women’s Health. She created and was the lead expert for Huffington Post Living’s “Total Energy Makeover with Ashley Koff RD” which aired monthly on Good Morning America Health, and is the featured dietitian for Deepak Chopra’s new YouTube Channel show, 30 Days of Intent.

Ashley Koff is the author of Mom Energy: A Simple Plan to Live Fully Charged (Hay House; 2011) as well as Recipes for IBS (Fair Winds Press; 2007) and contributed chapters to several medical textbooks.
