Think dietitians don't eat fast food? Well, this one does! While takeout isn't a part of my daily routine, I have been known to hit up my local mall food court, my neighborhood sandwich shop, and the drive thru. While I'm often busy, I don't make that my reason for heading out for fast food. Sometimes I just really enjoy having someone else cook for me and having the food be prepared quickly—and not spending a lot. Yup, I said healthy fast food! Just use this advice from my dietitian colleagues.
It's no secret that I love to travel. I've just returned from Paris and Frankfurt, and I'll be traveling to Washington D.C. later this week for a nutrition conference. So you can say I've been constantly packing and unpacking for weeks. And of course, the process includes replenishing my stash of healthy on-the-road snacks. Luckily, I've created a system that I use to stay fit and healthy while I explore the globe. I've collected top tips from other nutritionists to give you a variety of tips.
Heart Health Month is here! Hooray. This cause is near to my heart, since both sides of my family have a history of heart disease. As a registered dietitian nutritionist, I like to create yummy recipes that also happen to be heart healthy. (What kind of RD would I be if I didn’t?)
Wondering what nutritionists do every weekend? Here are my registered dietitian secrets! For one, I love to experiment in the kitchen. I'll pick up whatever catches my eye at the grocery store, and this week it was cantaloupe, a childhood favorite fruit.
