Celebrate Your Culture and Identity Through Food
Your Resource for Latina Wellness
Who We Are
Mariana Rodriguez and Briauna Ramirez
Viva la Comida was founded by Mariana Rodriguez and Briauna Ramirez (Bri), registered dietitian nutritionists who grew up in Phoenix, Arizona. Arizona is a diverse community with many Hispanic influences. Our Latina roots have brought us culture, tradition, and a love for food.
We are here to challenge and overcome the health equities faced in our Latine community. As your #1 Latine wellness resource, we promise to provide evidence-based, accessible and inclusive care to help you achieve your health goals. Most importantly, we are here to teach you how the foods you love and cherish can be a part of your health.
Viva la Comida's mission is to empower our community to celebrate their culture and identity through food by providing inclusive nutrition education.
