As a registered dietitian, it is my professional duty to inform the public of sound nutrition information. I take a critical eye at research and try to provide the best recommendations for the general public.
I believe that vegetables and fruit should be eaten in abundance, whole grains and legumes should be dietary staples, and dairy, meat and healthy fats can all be added into your diet and it still be considered “healthy.”
I believe in moderation. I believe that (almost) all foods can fit into a healthy diet.
I believe in listening to your body’s satiety and hunger cues and intuitive eating.
I believe that you shouldn’t feel guilty or shameful for eating certain foods.
I believe that the only “bad” foods are ones that have spoiled (that includes gluten, carbs, meat, fat, etc.).
I believe that you should eat whole foods and avoid artificial foods when you can.
I believe that you don’t have to break the bank to provide nutritious meals for your family.
I believe that you don’t have to sacrifice the foods you love to be in good health.
