14 Jul Feeding the Appetites of the Culinary, Epicurious and Nutrition Worlds-One Bite at a Time
It’s what I’m all about as a person and as a dietitian. Many dietitians are not food people….I am not one of them. Believe me, there are many dietitians who are not clinically focused. I am one of those for certain! I leave the science of dietetics and therapy of nutrition up to my esteemed colleagues. There are so many all over the country that I admire. Soon, you’ll get to see some of their work-stay tuned to this blog post! If you need to find one in your area, go to www.eatright.org and select “Find a Nutrition Professional“.
Regardless if you consider seeing a registered dietitian about sorting out the latest in fad diets, learning about safe and effective weight loss, managing Celiac disease, dealing with your picky eaters, finding out the best fuel for the marathon you are going to run, maneuvering through the grocery aisles for food allergies, eating organically, preventing heart disease or getting your diabetes under control, know that all of these issues start with actual food.
My current mission is to teach people about food. Actual tastes, senses, flavors, ingredients, cooking, recipes, food memories and the like. When talking about nutrition, food is the basis-the essence-of it all. We can all relate to food in some fashion-positive or negative-its something we all have in common. Some people forget to eat during the day. Some people are so passionate about food that all they can think of is what to create for dinner that night–and happily do so-without dread. We all have a relationship with food. Let’s start with that. How is your relationship with food today?
I’m taking part in the Women’s Health Blogfest today. This is a national initiative that a couple of really savvy dietitians created earlier in 2009. Check back here soon for links to posts from other Women’s Health bloggers.
