 Liza Aschettino, MS, RD, LDN


Hi, I'm Liza Aschettino, MS, RD, LDN. I am a non-diet, weight-inclusive Registered Dietitian based in New Jersey. I am passionate about helping my clients improve their relationship with food for both mental and physical health. 


I chose to pursue a career in nutrition to help others better manage their health, inspired by my grandmother with diabetes and cardiac disease. As an overweight child and teen, I too struggled with diet culture and disordered eating patterns. As I got older, I grew more interested in whole foods and the way food impacts our body, mind and prevents disease. I began solidifying my scientific and psychological background from Rutgers University, where I obtained my Bachelor’s Degree in Nutritional Science and a Minor Degree in Psychology. I went off to get my Master’s Degree in Nutritional Science at the University of North Florida. 

Since becoming a clinical dietitian, I have experience working with a variety of different conditions amongst many different cultures. My goal for my clients is to transform the way you think about food, in order to help you reach your personal goals. I emphasize macronutrient balance, mindfulness at meal times as well as having nutritious, wholesome foods incorporated into your daily routine. In my spare time, you will see me snowboarding, lounging at the beach, enjoying nature, traveling, cooking or spending time with my dog.


 I hope to get the opportunity to provide you with the knowledge and tools to live a less restrictive, more balanced and healthful lifestyle!


My scope of practice includes: Gastrointestinal diseases, Weight Inclusive (WI), Cardiometabolic Disorders (cardiovascular disease, diabetes), Mindful eating, Weight Management, Plant-based lifestyles

Ariel Easton, RDN


Hello! My name is Ariel Easton, RDN. I am a registered dietitian with a passion for helping people optimize their overall health via food and nutrition. I do this with a weight inclusive, non-diet approach, that is client centered to empower each patient to meet their individual needs on their health journey! 

   I received my Bachelors Degree in Nutrition and Dietetics from Rutgers University in NJ and then went on to complete my dietetic internship with Sodexo in Pensacola, FL. My interest in nutrition began as a teenager working in the kitchen of a nursing home. It was then that I learned about the connection between nutrition and health and chronic disease, and the therapeutic diets that come along with that. During this time I also learned how to cook which has contributed to a life long passion for all things food and nutrition! 

   Since becoming a Registered Dietitian I have worked with a variety of patients in the inpatient and outpatient setting gaining experience with oncology, pre-diabetes, diabetes, chronic kidney disease, end stage renal disease on dialysis, GI disorders, tube feeding, celiac disease, weight management, recipe development, mindful eating techniques, and meal planning. One thing I’ve learned while gaining experiences with these various nutrition related topics is that there is no one size fits all nutrition plan. Therefore every person I counsel will receive individualized care that fits their specific needs or nutrition goals

   A nutrition quote by Michael Pollan that I keep in mind when counseling patients is “What would happen if we were to start thinking about food as less of a thing and more of a relationship?” I encourage my patients to re-evaluate their relationships with food. I want to help you be able to enjoy the foods you love and learn how to nurture your body in a way that aligns with your ethics, culture and values, while also providing evidence based practices to help optimize your health. We will do this together through creating and building upon sustainable changes that will last a life time! When I’m not counseling patients you will find me in the kitchen experimenting with new recipes with my boyfriend, on the beach with my dog, kayaking or hiking.
