Summer Suleiman is a health writer and blogger who began her journalism career with CNN. She returned home to New Orleans in 2013 to recover, after she was diagnosed with a rare genetic disease. Her doctor recommended that she eliminate fatty foods from her diet, and abstain from alcohol. So, what did she do? She moved to New Orleans. In Summer in the City, she writes about her experience living healthy (or trying to) in a city best known for its fabulous (unhealthy) food and debauchery. You can read about her journey saying no po'boys and Sazeracs, and yes to kale and juicing at www.HealthySummer.me or on Twitter @summersuleiman.
