PROBIOTICS * 🧫Probiotics are live bacteria that are produced by your gut and live there as well.Their role is to keep your gut healthy, which helps keep your immune system healthy. * 🔎Certain strains of bacteria have been clinically shown to help in the management of certain illnesses. In adults, there is evidence of benefits in supplementation for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), constipation, prevention of antibiotic associated diarrhea and infectious diarrhea, as well as bacterial vaginosis and vulvovaginal candidiasis specifically in women. In children, effectiveness of supplementation has been shown in cases of colic, constipation, antibiotic associated diarrhea, IBS, and regurgitation/gastrointestinal motility. * ⏰Generally speaking, probiotic supplements are safe for everyday health. If you begin experiencing chronic gastrointestinal distress, talk to a dietitian or physician about whether adding a probiotic would be appropriate as part of your treatment plan. * 👩🏻‍⚕️Since resolution of gut conditions are strain specific, it’s best to consult a dietitian before purchasing a probiotic supplement. * 🥛Currently, probiotics are not recommended for lactose intolerance as they do not demonstrate any effect on improving symptoms. * 🔬There is a great deal of research being conducted on probiotics and mental health, stress management, sleep and genetics. Exciting stuff!

In 2050 our population will reach 10 billion people. How will we feed everyone? This week @eatfoundation published an article written by thirty seven nutrition, agriculture, health and government experts. According to them, plants are the answer. To ensure more sustainable agriculture methods and the health of individuals, they suggest we increase consumption of fruits, vegetables, nuts and legumes, and decrease intake of red meat, dairy and fish. Nutritionally speaking, the article recognizes some obstacles, such as specific populations dependency on animal protein for energy, areas with increased rates of malnutrition, and ensuring micronutrient adequacy. That being said, if you are able to make a change, why not try? It’s not about replacing food groups, it’s about adding more plants to your plate! One step at a time🌱⁣ ⁣ The article: Willett W, Rockström J, Loken B, et al. Food in the Anthropocene: the EAT–Lancet Commission on healthy diets from sustainable food systems.

I had a pool swim this morning and a lift this afternoon and I’m convinced my body was craving something salty! Was feeling the ramen tonight, so here’s a pic in the process of it all going down! 🍜 ✖️ ✖️ Our bodies are smarter than we think they are. There is a reason we crave certain foods, feel hungry, and feel full. Our system knows what it wants and how to utilize carbs, fats, and proteins perfectly. So let’s try to let it do just that, and trust that this beautiful creation may know more than what society or the media tells us. . . . . . . #intuitiveeating #ramen #training #performancenutrition #listentoyourbody #dinnerrecipes #saltycravings #electrolytes #dieteticintern #rd2be #sportsnutrition #tips

10 years... . . . 10 years ago I should have been at the prime of my health. But I was on my 5th year of infertility and 11th year of hypothalamic amenorrhea. I had changed my diet. I ate gluten free. I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and began taking medicine. My chronic back pain had just started. I had psoriasis, IBS, elevated inflammatory markers, chronic infections, allergies, anemia, and more. . . . Images are deceiving. The photo on the left hides it all. Just because I was not in my best health and the years of infertility weighed on me emotionally, I was genuinely happy that day. I had the amazing privilege of modeling gowns I assisted in creating with @suzanneperronstpaul. I felt beautiful and was proud to show off the detailed and laborious work these gowns involve. (With many thanks to the photographer @jason_cohen and @katiemalonemakeup for making me look gorgeous!). . . . The woman on the left has grown a lot. I do think I look at least 10 years older, but that’s okay. I have two miraculous children. I no longer have hypothalamic amenorrhea. I still have psoriasis, SIBO, MCAS, back pain, allergies, and IBS, but these things don’t consume my life. I am genuinely happy, here on the right, because I was thrilled to spend the day with my husband and kids, sharing one of my favorite Christmas traditions with them. . . . Aging is a privilege. In many ways, I feel better now then I did 10 years ago, even if I do look 10 years older.

Hope your weekend is as bomb as these cookies 😍 Don’t forget to treat yo self 💗 . . It is my opinion that life is too short for “healthy” desserts. Some foods just aren’t meant to be healthy. Like cookies. And ice cream. Paleo, low-carb, etc. desserts are almost always disappointing and nowhere near as satisfying as the real, traditional version of the dessert. This is problematic because if it doesn’t satisfy you, it just makes you crave the real deal even more, and this can lead to a feeling of restriction because it doesn’t TRULY satisfy that craving. My advice: when you want dessert, eat the real deal, savor it, and move on. There is no need to overthink the situation, beat yourself up for indulging, or feel like you now need to go workout to “make up for it.” Are there more nutrient-dense foods out there? Yes. But treats serve a purpose beyond nourishment of our bodies - nourishment of our emotional and mental well-being. Because remember, there is so much more to health than just physical health ✨

💡 PROUD MOMENT 💡 - The other night I made a mental note in the change of conversation over dinners, I was asked “WHAT veggies are we having with dinner?” Instead of, “ARE we having veggieswith dinner?” - Little sustainable changes has made one stubborn grown-@$$ adult start to like veggies with his meals and appreciate all that they provide 😆😆 - Tonight he asked me “how many asparagus are in a serving?” I told him 5 because I didn’t want to burst his bubble that I had no idea and it’s pizza 🍕 Friday who cares anyways? {he took 6 in case you were counting 🙈} ++ yes, he snagged a piece before I could 📸

We made it to Friday! 🤘 - Bust out the chips and dip, have a few drinks and enjoy the freakin' weekend 🎉 - Easy Guac: Mash avocado, sprinkle with onion powder (or chop up red onion) and cayenne pepper. Squeeze lime over it. Add some chopped cilantro and tomatoes if you enjoy such things. Dip those chips and enjoy! - #tgif #freakinweekend #zealforzoodles #easyeats #healthyfats #rd2be #nutritionnerd #foodaholics #avocadoislife 🥑

TGIF! What better way to spend a chilly Friday evening at home than with a bowl of @jbkellyseafood seafood chowder and a few slices of @radishandrye McGrath Original bread to soak up those delicious juices! 🦐 🍞 . . Although we topped the chowder with our own striped bass filets from a fishing trip this past summer, it was not lacking in seafood- It has Scallops, Lobster, Crab, Monkfish, Clams, Shrimp, Organic Veggies and Herbs, Coconut Milk, and @zerodaybrewing Mango Hab 🍻 ❤️ . .

It's (finally!) the weekend! If you have digestive concerns, one thing that's sometimes forgotten is the impact of stress on our gut health. We tend to be so focussed on the food and what we're eating that the brain 🧠 -gut connection is put on the back burner. What could you do this weekend to give your brain and gut some rest? -Spending even 5 minutes in the day for just yourself! Breathing exercises, meditation, or even reading a quick chapter of that book you've wanted to read is a great start! -Take a walk around the block and get in some fresh air. -Do something you love and enjoy it guilt free! It's hard setting aside time in our busy schedules (or you're like me and thinking of all my to-dos while I'm doing it). Live in the moment just for the day! Are you making time for some self care? . . . . . . . #dietitian #nutrition #nutritionist #rd2be #gutbrainconnection #guthealth #gutnutrition #ibs #ibsdiet #ibd #ibddiet #ulcerativecolitis #crohnsdisease #mentalhealth #selfcare #weekendvibes #brunchgoals #onmyplate #mindbodyspirit #mindbodygram #vancouverdietitian #vancouvernutritionist #vancitybiz #iamwellandgood #tiuteam

This isn’t your typical #10yearchallenge For one, it’s a 23 year challenge - it hurts to write that 🤦🏼‍♀️ . 23 years ago I had a terrible relationship with my body, food, and exercise. . Between the periods of not eating much, bingeing, exercising for hours, and worse I was looking for “secret” of eating like a “normal” person and being at a magical weight. . I can’t pinpoint when it started but I can tell you it got a lot worse before it got better. . It wasn’t six years of college, two degrees in nutrition, or hours planning meals that got me to this point. Kind of a let down for my 18 year old self. . It was learning about what works for me. Acceptance. Intuitive eating. Forgiveness. Energy. Fuel. Unrestricted. Peace. . Today, I’m proud and thankful for the relationship I have with food, exercise, and my body. Don’t wait another 10 years (or 23) before you have a healthy relationship with food. Are you ready? #intuitiveeating

Can’t believe this week is already over, my favorite part was working in the Infant Feeding Nutrition Clinic! This is where, as an interdisciplinary team, we work together to help those who have difficulty getting the proper nutrition and get them on the right track to grow! That being said, I’ve been pretty busy but one thing I absolutely love and look forward to each day being at Cleveland Clinic is the focus on art! Especially here, working in pediatrics, the colorful fun images and art that surrounds the building help to uplift spirits even when it gets dark so early this time of year! For those of you in Ohio, be careful this weekend and enjoy the snow❄️ . #dieteticintern #nutrition #thisiscle #dieteticinternship #rd2be

Alright guys. I had ZERO intent on doing the #10yearchallenge, but once I looked though some old photos I couldn’t NOT share. So, here goes. . 10 years ago I was a Junior in high school. I was super athletic, not the most studious (total understatement), and cared more about being “popular” than anything else. I had horrible self-esteem but was not overly critical of by body or food choices. . Fast forward to today, I’m still super athletic, have successfully achieved my dream career of becoming a Registered Dietitian, and give zero effs 🙅‍♀️about popularity- I am who I am.  I am the happiest I have ever been in my life (I have tears in my eyes typing that🥰). I have fabulous self-esteem and am not overly critical of by body or food choices. . So, some things changed and some are the same. But guys- a LOT has happened in those 10 years. As I was looking back through pictures I saw my eating disorder and exercise addiction develop, progress, and take over my life. I also saw them get fought, kicked to the curb, and repurposed in order to help others avoid my same struggles. . I have mixed emotions about those 10 years. I feel sad about how much life I missed out on. I feel angry for not getting help earlier. But, most of all I feel STRONG for making it through everything that has happened. . I guess my point in sharing this novel of a post is to give you hope. If you’re struggling with food, body image, or whatever it may be, you CAN fight the fight- and WIN. I did! 🙋‍♀️And you can too. I want to be your personal cheerleader every step of the way! 👯‍♀️ . Give me a 🙌🏻 in the comments if you’re ready to STOP wasting time in this precious life and start living your best one! I’ll give three! 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 . Ps. Apparently I like to wear white dresses. 😂 Fun fact: it is actually my favorite color. Yes it IS a color!!!

Shrimps, scallops, mussels, & couscous. Not big into meat so I often eat seafood to get dat protein in. . Seafood is super fun bc it’s a good source if zinc, high in protein & low in sat fat. . . . #dieteticintern #vsco #food #rd2be #pescatarian #seafood #foodgram #friyay #columbusohio

🌶🥦 It’s a pickle making party over here today! I whipped up these sweet and spicy radish and broccoli stem pickles to use as a garnish in salads, tacos, or as a tangy addition to any other meal! . The radishes provide a great bite against the crunchy broccoli stems, a part of the plant that is (in my opinion) highly underutilized! As part of my 2019 resolutions, I am trying to reduce my waste output. Part of that is finding ways to use food remnants that may otherwise be tossed, much like broccoli stems! They are delicious pickled or in a stir fry, for example. To make your own pickles, follow the recipe below: . Spicy Radish and Broccoli Stem Pickles • 1 bunch radishes (~7-10 radishes) • 2 broccoli stems • 3 garlic cloves, crushed • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes • 1/2 teaspoon whole mustard seed • 1/2 teaspoon whole coriander seed • 1 cup apple cider vinegar • 1 cup water • 1/4 cup honey • 2 1/2 teaspoons salt . Directions: • Thinly slice the radishes and broccoli stems into rounds (I use my mandoline for this to speed up the process). • Pack the rounds into a quart size mason jar along with the garlic cloves, red pepper flakes, mustard seeds, and coriander seeds. • Combine the apple cider vinegar, water, honey, and salt in a small pot and bring to a boil, stirring frequently. • Remove from heat and pour into jar to cover contents. • Let cool and enjoy right away or store for up to two weeks and enjoy as you please! . (Note: In this photo I made a double batch, I just love them so much!) . What are your favorite ways to use “food scraps?” 🌶🥦 . . . . . . . . . . #pickles #pickledveggies #broccolistems #radish #applecidervinegar #acv #reducewaste #reducefoodwaste #healthyrecipes #healthyfood #healthy #health #nutrition #dieteticintern #rd2be #happyhealthyhayley #happyhealthy #holistichealth #holisticnutrition #ayurveda #ayurvedalife #seattlefoodie #seattlefoodblog #foodasmedicine #healthyfoodblog #nutritionmatters #vegetarian #vegetarianrecipes #healthyeating #cleaneating

I love Friday mornings!!! No internship, no early morning school classes... just me time😍 This is usually when I take the time to meal prep, exercise, get organized for the following week, etc. Today I decided to prep breakfast for next week because cereal just isn’t cutting it anymore. I made a bunch of these breakfast burritos to stick in the freezer and heat up whenever I need a quick, on the go meal! 🌯🍳 I got this meal prep idea from @itsrisss, and it definitely does not disappoint! Here’s the d(eat)s: -Diced mushrooms, red bell pepper, red onion, and spinach seasoned with salt & pepper (sauté on stove top in olive oil for about 5 min) -scrambled eggs (I used about 8 to make 5 burritos) -pepper jack cheese -whole wheat tortilla Directions: fill tortilla with egg and desired veggies, wrap in foil, and freeze! When ready to eat, heat for 2 minutes or until hot. I love adding salsa on mine 😛

Working in School Nutrition Service is such a Pear 🍐 y Good Time!!

It’s often the little things in life that matter the most - I can see the same being true for Health & Nutrition! It’s the little Vitamins & Minerals, Phytochemicals and other beneficial details from Healthy Fruits & Vegetables that can make all the difference. Did you know that Pears 🍐 pack a lot of fiber to keep you satisfied as well?? They’re seriously one of my favorite fruits because they’re not overly sweet, yet they’re still delicious, succulent, and hydrating as well!

Don’t you love when you’re M O T I V A T E D 💪🏻 It’s easy to get up and work out or finish that assignment when motivation is high 💯 What about when it’s not? Do you quit? Do you stop and say well at least I tried? Or do you push passed it and remain DEDICATED to your goal? I’m not always motivated 🙅🏼‍♀️ these past few months I have struggled with depression or being overly anxious, letting my emotions take control at times 😬 because L I F E happens 🚙 What helps me is remembering the woman I want to be despite the setbacks. I may not be motivated but I am determined. I go despite how I’m feeling. It may not be all in but it’s enough to put one foot in front of the other.. I write down my goals 📝 I reach out to friends who are supportive 👯 I pray 🙏🏼 And I refuse to stop 🛑 Don’t let lack of motivation be an excuse.

Never enough selfies in the white coat 😂👩‍⚕️ Week 3 of acute care was spent with the ICU- Incredible experience, dealing with such critical patients. I was able to participate in rounds, make recommendations (under my preceptor, of course) and provide diet education. Seeing how TPN, CRRT, and enteral nutrition is used in a fast past setting was very interesting to me. Couldn’t be more grateful for this opportunity and being a dietetic intern 💕🍎🏥

Food peace brings so much joy to your life that may not be in your life right now. Every person will need to make peace with food in their own way. But for a lot of people, that means eating foods that can be “binge foods”, “cheat foods”, “treats”, “off-limits”, whatever you call it! Eating these foods in a way that works for you can be feel very different than bingeing on these foods– even though it’s the same food. Think about these 2 different situations: 1. After dinner compulsively standing in front of your pantry cabinet eating chips out of the bag, moving onto some handfuls of cereal, and then ending with the pint of ice cream in the freezer. Afterwards you say to yourself "Ugg that wasn't a good idea." #eatwithknowledge #eatingdisorderdietitian 2. You decide to have chips with lunch that day because it's one of your favorite foods. You add in cereal to your yogurt in the morning and love the extra crunch and flavor it provides. And finally, you end your day with a bowl of ice cream, making sure to get your favorite kind. One of the main differences is the connection and relationship with these 3 foods. That's why I never blame the food for the way you feel about the food, it's about the relationship you have with food. This is why it's so important to "make peace with food". #eatwithknowledge #pursuingprivatepractice #eatingdisorders #ended #eatingdisorderdietitian #dietitian #healthateverysize #haes #haesdietitian #healthyliving #soulfie #dietitian #rd2be #antidiet #allfoodsfit #bodypositivity #edrecovery #eatingdisorderdietitian #selfcare #bodykindness #bodypositivity #foodisfuel #eatrightpro #rdchat #fnce #recoverywarrior

I’m sure at some point you or someone you know has received a comment about someone’s weight that was said out of ‘concern for their health’. These comments are not coming from a place of concern or care, they’re coming from a part of them that is fatphobic and has been conditioned to associated fat bodies with bad health. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But for arguments sake, let’s just say that having extra fat on the body did cause chronic illness. Would shaming someone be the best way to encourage change? We certainly know now that shaming someone’s choices does not promote behaviour change. So why do we continue to do it? Why do we continue to interject our opinion when it’s not asked for?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Because someone’s else’s health is no-one’s businesses expect for there’s and maybe health is not something they prioritise or something they may never be able to achieve. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If we were so concerned with promoting health, we would encourage healthy behaviour change, help people heal their relationship with food, eliminate the stigma attached to certain bodies and create space for all marginalised bodies to create change if they choose too.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #haes #healthateverysize #nondiet #bopo #bodypositive #wellness #liveinspired #wellnessjourney #nourishyourself #cleaneating #fit #fitness #dietculture #keto #vegan #paleo #cleanliving #nutrition #dietitian #foodfacts #science #food #foodie #foodporn #fightfatphobia #fitness #antidiet #whole30 #rd2be #mentalhealth

Stocking up for the weekend! It’s a pain to grocery shop every few days but it saves money! Tonight I’m making tomato basil meatloaf with broccoli, roasted Brussel sprouts, and potatoes. I’m also prepping a lemon garlic spaghetti squash 👩‍🍳 so excited about it! . . . healthylifestyle #inspiration #instafit #rd2be #mealprep #fitmom #runningmom #cleaneating #strongnotskinny #unitedmotherhood #exercise #nutrition #selflove #honestlymothering #strongmom #bbg #womenshealth #bodypositive #grainfree #fitwomen #healthymom #cook #instafood #foodstagram #eat #foodlover #homemade #tasty #organic #healthy

It’s no secret to anyone who knows me that I love a good play on words (the cheesier, the better)🧀 So when it came down to naming my business, I tried to make it fun and functional. I went through a whole slew of horrible ideas before finally deciding to go with the brilliant suggestion of “Sward and Shield.” A quick explination: by now, “Sward” should be pretty obvious. 🗡 It’s my last name, and sounds remarkably similar to “sword”, so the next part fit pretty naturally into the name - but what does “shield” stand for? 🛡 It is a reference to the protective properties I believe a healthy, balanced lifestyle can provide. 🍎I believe that a balanced diet and active lifestyle can help prevent and treat many of the chronic diseases that currently plague the Western world. For many people, this lifestyle might be an adjustment, but that’s what people like me are here for. I’m here to help focus on whole foods and to find physical activity that works with each body. 🏃🏻‍♀️🤸🏽‍♂️🏋🏽‍♂️🤼‍♂️🏊🏻‍♀️🧘🏽‍♀️I’m here for inspiration, accountability, and most importantly, helping everyone I work with live a lifestyle they can maintain while having FUN! 🎉🎉🎉 #personaltrainer #rd2be #bodypositive #confidence #health #wholefoods #trainer

When they catch you stealing a bite 🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️ Brownies. Real, choclately, buttery, milk filled brownies. No trying to substitue grain free flours, dairy free chocolate or coconut oil for butter. This is right FOR ME, today. This is intuitive eating. And surprise -- when your brownies taste real, you can enjoy one or two without continuing to look for satisfaction bc your grain free dairy free joy free brownies just can't cut it 🤷🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️🍫 • • • • • • #bodypositive #anorexiarecovery #bulimiarecovery #diet #enddietculture #newyearnewme #eatingdisorderrecovery #nodietsforus #edrecovery #edwarrior #healthyfoodshare #rd2be #bopo #eeeeeats #goodeats #foodie #foodforthought #feedfeed #foodfreedom #allfoodfits #foodisfuel #intuitiveeating #haes #mindbodygram #instahealth #iifewthliv

Lunch today was mighty tasty!!!😊 I made some crispy Italian coated tofu ( 2 tbsp of @nutcrumbs + 1 tbsp of @bobsredmill arrowroot flour ) some balsamic roasted carrots and a zucchini!! One pan and just 30 minutes and lunch was made!! • Also wanted to say something that’s kinda been hanging on my mind lately... I got a comment the other day about how what I eat isn’t enough or isn’t “real” ( like eat real wraps instead of grain free or Paleo) and I just wanted to say that what I eat works for me and makes me feel good and that’s what should matter. I feel like everyone has their own version of healthy and that’s perfectly fine because everyone is different and what some people can tolerate and like is going to be different than what others are eating. So I respect everyone’s choices when it comes to food because I know it affects people differently. Another thing is that I don’t post everything I eat... like this lunch for example, yes I ate all of this plus more carrots while cutting them up and while I was waiting for it to cook I was eating some @squareorganics popcorn and @seapointfarms edamame 😂😂 so this was more like my second round for lunch! • Just thought I share that because it has been on my mind now and wanted to get it out!!

If you’re a dietetic major, you know the dietetic pathway career is very, very, very, detailed and it’s hard to explain to someone who isn’t in the dietetic field. At first, I found the internship process and DICAS application very confusing, and since I wanted a distance one, I had to market myself in finding my own preceptors before submitting my DICAS application. From the many facilities I called, walked into, and emailed just to hear many “NOs,” I turned all my “no’s” into “try agains” until I finally found places to accept me as their intern. Once I submitted my application (which I perfected to the best of my ability numerous of times), I waited a month to see if I got matched with any of the internships I applied too. I was then accepted into my first choice, from which they only accept 30 interns per semester from around the US. From here you would think it got easier, but I was between finishing my last semester of undergrad and completing additional modules, case studies, and projects assigned from my internship in less than a month. The most nerve-racking part was going to Houston and thinking it would be a condensed version of everything I learned in undergrad in 3 days. I got there, and met many other interns who expected the worse (but our prior group chat relieved our stress). As it turns out, my program directors were super helpful and super amazing believing in us. I also met women who are just as awkward, perfectionists, bubbly, supportive, and most importantly, determined. I’m very happy to be an intern of U of H and to start my intern journey. I don’t expect it to be rainbows and sunshine, but a learning experience that I can use to my advantage towards my career. To all the undergrad dietetic majors, don’t give up, put in work, and don’t be afraid to ask for help! #dietetics #dieteticintern #rd2be

Here’s your quick reminder before the weekend 🧐 / / ‘Eat to live, don’t live to eat’ or ‘food is fuel’ are some of the classic phrases used to make you feel bad about eating for any reason other than physical hunger. The truth is, we eat for SO MANY reasons, and they’re all valid ✅ / / Family traditions, outings with friends, celebrations, etc etc etc. are (more often than not) rooted in food, and that’s okay!! Food lights up the pleasure centers in your brain the same way that hugs, kittens, and babies do 🧠 so it’s only natural that we associate food with these happy experiences and the comfort surrounding them. / / You are allowed to eat food just because they taste good, or because they make you happy. You are allowed to choose foods without thinking about how it fits into your macros or calories for the day. I promise, the world we keep on spinning 🌎 / / All that being said, if you’re an athlete who trains or competes regularly, food will absolutely just be fuel sometimes!! But all the time? Das boring 🙄

Sometimes it’s been a really long, emotional week & you just need to eat a cookie. 🍪 . There is so much stigma around emotional eating, but emotional eating is actually part of a normal, healthy relationship with food. . Diet culture will tell you that food is merely fuel, but it is SO MUCH MORE than that. Food is highly connected to our emotions. . It’s okay to choose certain foods for satisfaction. It’s okay to choose foods that aren’t nutrient-packed if they sound yummy to you. It’s okay to choose foods that bring you joy!

If you can't tell from my recent stories, I'm seriously obsessed with this curtido right now 💕 the fiesta roja from @sobremesavt is amazing on salads, sandwiches, or straight from the jar 😁 I added it to this kale salad with jerk tempeh, sweet potato, sunflower seeds, and vegan parm 🌿 Fermented foods also contain probiotics that temporarily chill in your gut and can help with digestion!👩‍⚕️ #vegan #veganeats #rd2be #nutrition #veganstudent #dairyfree #crueltyfree #probiotics #fermentation

One fruit that I almost always buy frozen are raspberries. Unless picked close to time of harvest they mold and spoil very easily. Frozen raspberries last for months and are still high quality nutrition. • In my food service dietetic internship rotation so many raspberries had to be thrown out to prevent patients from getting sick because of this & it hurt my heart to see so much food waste 💔that I started a waste project on it. • My favorite way to prepare them are as a pancake 🥞 syrup or in smoothies 😋What’s your favorite food to freeze and how do you use them? • • 📸: @collegenutritionist #health #wellnessblogger #nutritionista #foodblogger #foodie #rd2be #nutrition #fitfam #healthtip #fruit #raspberry #tsw #eczemawarrior #bliss #blissnutrition #happyfriday

So last week @simplifiesit and I went to @cava, which is basically like Chipotle but for Mediterranean food. I know right? 😍 Game changer. Have any of you ever tried it!? It was so good I recreated it at home 🤤 . 🥬 base: Brown rice, lentils, spinach, baby kale 🥄 dips: kalamata + roasted red pepper hummus 🍴 protein: falafel 🥒 toppings: diced cucumbers, banana peppers, olives, + pickled onions

Happy Friday!! I know my plate looks like a disaster but this is one of the best tofu scrambles I’ve made 🤤 That’s not the focus of this post though, it’s about a specific ingredient- KIDNEY BEANS!🥰 . Yep! These babies are soo good for you. They’re mainly composed of carbs and fiber, but also rich in protein! (1cup boiled=15g) In fact, these beans are one the richest plant-based sources of protein, sometimes referred to as "poor man's meat" . They’re also a good source of several vitamins and minerals, such as molybdenum, folate, iron, copper, manganese, potassium, vitamin K1 and phosphorus! . One more important note about these “magical fruits”, they contain proteins that actually reduce the digestion of carbohydrates, so they may be considered a weight loss food 🤭😃 . . . #eatwellbewell #dietetics #nutrition #nutritiontips #rd2be #foodie #beans #dieticianintraining #veglife #vegan #nutritionfacts #myplate #healthymeals

Shout out to @daveskillerbread. Oh my yum!

Easy weeknight dinner alert!! If you missed my stories the other night, this sweet potato noodle skillet with broccoli, kale, chicken sausage, capers and tomato sauce only takes about 15-20 minutes to make from start to finish. More’s SO good. Full of flavor & nutrient dense foods, this is a great one to have in your back pocket for weeknight dinners. Now this is my kinda fast food 😎. Check out the step by step details for how to make it in my story highlights! #preventionpantry

Chickpea soup for the soul 🌱 // Year after year, the nutrition industry has had so many faulty trends, from “fat is bad” (sorry 🥑!! We love you) to “carbs are bad” to “eat more cereal” and anything else you can think of. 🤔 However, the one concept that has remained • • constant • • is to eat your damn veggies. Breakfast, lunch, snack, dinner, drinks- it doesn’t matter where you eat them, as long as you get them in your body! 🥦 // This was my spin on chicken noodle soup, one of my favorite comfort foods. Packed with lots of fiber, antioxidants & protein through the chickpeas, this is a great #vegan lunch option. I am NOT vegan nor have any interest in being vegan, but any opportunity that I can get more veggies in, is an opportunity I’ll take as an omnivore 🐽 Lunch tastes better when you eat with others, so thanks @sarahjgaines for coming over and catching up, friend 💙 // R E C I P E 🌱 1. Sauté onion, garlic, carrots, celery, and mushrooms with @traderjoes 21 seasoning (or whatever herbs/spices you deem fit) & parsley 2. Add frozen peas, chickpeas, bay leaf, and water to cover. Let boil and add 1.5 veggie bouillon, or to taste. 3. Let stew, as the @eatbanza chickpea pasta cooks separately. 4. When the pasta is done, rinse in cold water, and serve with the soup. 😋 // #resolvetoeatmorepasta @eatbanza

Taking a break from my little #intuitiveeating series today to bring you my first ever homemade brownies! With a secret ingredient?? ⬅️⬅️ • Black beans! I’ve tried black bean brownies that others have made but I’ve never attempted them myself. I used a recipe I found online from @chocolatecoveredkatie and they turned out AMAZINGGG 👌🏻 I wanted to try this simply for fun, and because I actually had all of the ingredients in my pantry already! 🍫 I would give them a 10/10 because they were SUPER easy to make and I love the fudgey, moist texture 🤗 . . . . . . . #rdtobe #rd2be #dietitiansofinstagram #dietitianeats #rdeats #rdchat #nondietdietitian #dessert #blackbeanbrownies #chocolate #yum #foodie #foodiegr

Happy Friday!!! 💃🏽🙌🏼 We've had more visitors than usual with a baby at home. As the host, I control what will be served. I do my best to offer different options that include healthy and not that healthy items. . . Include fresh fruits or vegetables as appetizer or snack 🍊🥒🥕Adopt eating habits where fruits and veggies are part of your routine. Stop limiting fruits and vegetables to strict diets behaviors. . . Next time you are the host, I challenge you to include at least one fruit or vegetable at the table. Here some options to consider:. -berries and yogurt. -apples dipped in peanut butter -peppers and hummus -baby carrots dipped in light salad dressing -grapes and cheese . . #healthyfood #healthyrecipes #healthylifestyle #healthypregnancy #healthypostpartum #balance #resolutions #goals #healthymind #healthymody #healthybody #healthymindset #resolutions #rd2be #nutrition #dietetics #rdapproved #postpartum #salud #bienestar #saludynutricion #saludybienestar #comersaludable #vivirsaludable #boston #eatboston #bostoneats

Does anyone else out there eat the same thing for breakfast 🍳 everyday? 🙋🏻‍♀️For me breakfast has to be easy and quick so I can get out the door to meet clients. . . . My husband and I typically #mealprep our breakfast on Sunday for the whole week, and this week it was the BLT Egg Muffins from the Winter Recipe eBook 🥓What’s your go to breakfast? . . . Check out this recipe and more by clicking the link in my bio!

Hey, how many of you like avocado toast + an egg? Let me know who my egg lovers are in the comments 👇🏻 - For me, this is a staple I can always turn to when I need something quick, easy & filling. This picture by @confessionofadietitian is awesome because it demonstrates the importance of having a balanced breakfast to increase satiety! Have you ever noticed when you eat only one food group in the morning or at any meal really, you’re hungry soon after? This is WHY! 🤭 - Our body needs all different food groups so we can provide the proper ingredients to make our body function properly & feel satisfied. For me personally this is why I’ve never like oatmeal, donuts or any high carb breakfasts because I get full so easily without eating enough protein and then I’m hungry an hour later. - How many of you know what I’m talking about or have experienced this? Let me know 🤗

question: what are your favorite forms of boring self care? what sort of self care can you carve out time for this weekend? i’m not sure where the idea that self care has to be complicated or fancy came from, but let’s reject that. i like a manicure as much as anyone, but i think the suggestion that pampering is the extent of self care is doing a disservice to an incredibly important practice. i think it’s also worth considering that self care can be a privilege. time is a privilege. • • i love a good bath, but also (in no order) clean sheets, crying when i feel like it, putting away piles of laundry (ok i like the aftermath of this one), watching tv, reading books, not second guessing my hunger cues or cravings, wiping down my kitchen counters, gentle walks, strenuous movement when i feel like it, getting 9 hours of 💤, calling my parents, texting with siblings and friends, setting boundaries, asking my husband for a hug. • • please share your ideas here. and then if you can, practice it. you deserve it. as part of my self care, i’m going to spend the weekend offline. not gonna lie, pretty excited about it. i have some books to read, friends to visit with and football to watch. hope you have a fab weekend 💙

A few days ago, I got to visit the Barbara Davis Center for Childhood Diabetes! The care team at this center primarily sees kiddos with T1DM (type 1 diabetes). The RDs here play an important role in providing education about diet, blood glucose, pumps/monitors, and more. Seeing all the roles RDs cab assume has been one of my favorite parts of the internship thus far. 👩‍⚕️🥕💪

Sweet Jesus.. my loaded oat bowl framily →+ in BLUEBERRY COMPOTE. 💙 The texture and flavor is SO INSANE. 🙌🏼 I thought my daily bowl was already perfect fuel for starting out every morning, this addition puts that to S H A M E. 🥣 The “compote” in my oats is so easy. Put (56g) blueberries in a pan, sauté slightly to arose the flavors then add a quick pour (40-50g) of almond milk. Lower the heat and slightly cover till the blubs soften into a compote-like paste. Then top with a heavy tbsp of the most natural (1g sugar WHAT) super creamy PB ever. 🥜 . Loaded Bowl: 42g old fashion oats + 112g egg whites mixed with a heavy amount of cinnamon powder. 😛 . SO AMAZING. Don’t hesitate, just go for it.

Be patient and have faith 📷: @affirmationaddict
