Orgain Healthcare Ambassador Spotlight: Ginger Hultin, MS, RDN, CSO

February 20, 2024

We sat down with Orgain’s new host for The Good Clean Nutrition Podcast, Ginger Hultin, to learn more about her background. Ginger Hultin is a nationally recognized registered dietitian and health writer. She is the founder and owner of Ginger Hultin Nutrition, a Seattle-based virtual nutrition practice, where she helps clients with complex health problems through nutrition. In addition to being the host of The Good Clean Nutrition Podcast, she is an author of two books, Anti-inflammatory Diet Meal Prep and the How to Eat to Beat Disease Cookbook. Ginger is also currently pursuing her doctorate in clinical nutrition.

Q. Please tell us a little bit about yourself personally and professionally so that our readers will be able to “get to know you.”
Nutrition is my passion! I’ve been a registered dietitian nutritionist for over 10 years now and have worked in a variety of settings from the cardiac floor of a big hospital in Chicago, to an integrative cancer treatment center, a vibrant start-up in Seattle focused on personalized wellness, and for the past 6 years, running my own virtual private practice, Ginger Hultin Nutrition. I’ve served as a long-time adjunct faculty member at Bastyr University/Bastyr Center for Natural Health in Seattle teaching clinical nutrition skills – and I also graduated from that university with my master’s in nutrition. Nutrition is a science that changes over time and so in 2022, I went back to school again (part time – so I can keep my patients the top priority!) and am pursuing my doctorate in clinical nutrition.

Personally, travel is one of my greatest joys. I get to add two new countries to my list this year when I go to Turkey and Greece. It’s also a goal of mine to go to all 50 states – only 13 more to go! I love animals and adopt senior cats; they’re such characters. You can find me in local Seattle cat cafes for fun on the weekends. I’m also very committed to fitness, and I walk in my neighborhood every day, lift weights several times per week, ride Peloton (I love the music aspect of it!), and get up skiing every chance I get in the winter. 

Q. As an Orgain Ambassador, why were you interested in being the next host for the Good Clean Nutrition Podcast?
I’m SO excited to be here! Nutrition communication is a passion of mine because more people need better access to evidence-based nutrition. It can absolutely improve your health and relieve stress when you learn balanced ways to eat better. As a long-time listener of the podcast, I love the messaging and often listen to an episode while I’m driving or doing work around my house. It’s just so accessible, actionable, and interesting – Orgain has the best guests on their show. Prior host dietitian Mary Purdy is a wealth of knowledge and I’m excited to keep building off of her work and also bring my own perspective and style to the show this year. It’s going to be really fun.

Q. Have you used Orgain in any novel or unique ways with patients or clients?
I work in cancer care and am a board specialist in oncology nutrition, so I use Orgain every day with my clients. I always suggest Orgain grab-and-go options for busy treatment or appointment days but my favorite thing to do is to help my clients make their own shakes so they can adjust the flavor to their preferences. If I want to increase calories, I have them add peanut butter, almond butter, and avocado. We also play around with adding in different fruits, veggies, and natural flavors with the Orgain protein powder as the base. It’s so versatile! And I hear over and over again that when people get more protein, they start to feel better.
