Welcome to Hummusapien! I'm Alexis Joseph, a food writer, blogger, Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN), toddler mama, and Co-Founder of the restaurant group Alchemy Brands. This is my happy place!
Hummusapien is a multifaceted food, wellness, and lifestyle brand created in 2011 in order to inspire others to eat happy and live fully balanced.
I use my passion for cooking and wellness as fuel to help others ignite a more freeing relationship with food. Through years of experience coaching individual clients, consulting with food brands, and conceptualizing restaurants, I combine approachable recipes with nutrition education to bring peace and joy back to the table.
I like to eat plants and I love to eat chocolate croissants. I’m a fierce believer in making healthy absolutely delish. Check out This Is My Story, How I Became the Eater I Want to Be, and my FAQ page for more about my journey!
I have over eight years of experience working as a media spokesperson and expert nutrition consultant for countless popular food, wellness, and lifestyle brands such as ALDI, Barilla, General Mills, Kroger and beyond.
Hummusapien is one of the most heavily trafficked dietitian-authored blogs on the web today. My nutrition advice and approachable recipes are regularly featured in national online and print publications, including CNN, Food Network, Forbes, Women’s Health, and Cosmopolitan.
