Quick Healthy Meals Dietitians Make Every Day


Think dietitians eat nothing but salad? I love the satisfying crunch of fresh greens, but noshing on raw veggies isn't the only way to stay healthy! I also like to put whole grains and protein-packed eggs on my plate. Want to hear more about the recipes I rely on most when I need something quick and easy?


Are you eliminating snacks and filling up on "calorie-free" foods to be healthier? As a dietitian, I'm always busting popular diet myths to help my clients reach their goals. Fad diets may be popular in the media.


But if you're trying to lose weight, you can't beat loading up on fiber-rich fruits and vegetables. Want more foolproof tips for slimming down this spring? In honor of National Nutrition Month, here are a few of my favorites. I'm so glad I went back to school way back when to become a dietitian so that I can share this advice with you! While I'll occasionally make a complicated recipe, I typically live for healthy-cooking shortcuts.
