The purpose of this blog is to help people learn more about nutrition. I am not to tell you to eat more veggies or stay away from sweets. Believe me, I am not one who lives by the motto
“Eat to Live”, I am definitely a “Live to Eat” type of woman. My goal is to help you learn how to make healthier decisions on your own by giving you useful changes that you can easily make to your daily life. These changes range from indulging in moderation to listening to your body. Whether you follow all of my suggestions or just a couple, each one is a step in the right direction to feeling better and living a healthier life. Everyday I receive an email from the Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics with tons of new research about nutrition. I go through each article and review the information provided and post it here. I also subscribe to many health & fitness magazines and read them cover to cover to keep with the newest diet trends so that I’m aware of what the general population is being told. Some of the articles are very informative & accurate while others are not. There’s information for everyone in this blog, people looking to eat healthfully, shop on a budget, learn about new food laws, or just get more information about a particular nutrient. Any pictures you see in this blog were taken by me personally. You will see real food that was prepared by me or can be purchased in a restaurant.

““All registered dietitians are nutritionists – but not all nutritionists are registered dietitians. The term Nutritionist is not protected by law in almost all countries so people with different levels of knowledge can call themselves a “Nutritionist”. A Registered Dietitian Nutritionist has completed an undergraduate program in nutrition and also a one year clinical internship program. Registered Dietitian Nutritionists must pass a national exam administered by the Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics. Registered Dietitians must also maintain their registered status through continuing education and advanced degrees/certifications for areas of specialization.”
