About & Policy

Eat Well and Guilt-Free


The Healthy Dish is a website about Healthy Living, Eating, and Recipes that won’t break your budget. It’s also about Margarita Persico’s daily life around food, ­wherever she is, usually in Massachusetts, Florida, Costa Rica, Puerto Rico, New York, and at times further away.

The website carries posts and feature articles about the countless people she encounters during her adventures with food and life. But of outmost importance, it’s about encouraging healthy eating, living and environmental causes. The recipes are International, Healthy, Simple, Green, Most Vegan and all Gluten-Free.

The life of Margarita Persico, The Healthy Dish founder, revolves around her work as a writer, food and volunteering. When Margarita, the Food and Health Content Director, is not interviewing, researching, editing, writing, snooping around, talking to politicos, business people, local citizens, farmers, grocers and chefs, she’s usually writing, volunteering or cooking. And sometimes even exercising–spinning, yoga, hiking. One thing is for sure — she has a lot to write about.

The Healthy Dish stories are not only from Margarita’s kitchen lab, but also from other writers. The blog carries food and product reviews, fun posts as well as tips on health, safety in the kitchen and how to cook wholesome meals on a budget.
