PermanenteDocs Chat on nutrition and cooking as a route to wellness


Good food can be a tool toward a healthy lifestyle and good health. That’s the theory advocated by Linda Shiue, MD, an internist with The Permanente Medical Group who underwent professional training in cooking so she could use cooking and nutrition as a way to help her patients improve their health and well-being. On this PermanenteDocs Chat, Dr. Shiue talked with Alex McDonald, MD, about how physicians can guide patients on nutrition as well as pursue their passions to help with their own wellness.


  • Linda Shiue, MD, internal medicine physician, The Permanente Medical Group, and director of Culinary Medicine at Kaiser Permanente in San Francisco. Dr. Shiue offers hands-on culinary and nutrition education to patients and staff, and recently published her first cookbook, “Spicebox Kitchen.”
