The Candid RD is back! After a brief blogging hiatus my mind is refreshed and my blogger “pallet” is clean. I’m ready for a new start. Are you ready to join me?!

Yes, we are HUGE Ohio State Buckeye Fans!
With wedding planning no longer taking up all of my time, I’m ready to get back into the world of blogging, but I’m starting with a (somewhat) new format.
My focus with this blog has always been to make nutrition simple, understandable, and unambiguous. The article abstract below, which can only be read in full by Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics members, reiterates the fact that dietitians have an important responsibility to assist in clearing up the false food/nutrition/health information that is so easy to get a hold of in today’s crazy world.

There is inaccurate information about nutrition, food, and health everywhere, and dietitians are constantly looking for ways to convince people that not everything they hear is true (even if their doctor, or Dr. Oz says it is). I do not believe that I know everything about nutrition, but my goal still remains the same; I will strive each and every day to clear up the confusion that surrounds the topic of nutrition and health, and to make a healthy diet and lifestyle more achievable for anyone who is interested (hopefully, you!).
The following is my plan for this blog;
|This is a Tempeh Salad Sandwich. See my vegetarian recipes on the sidebar of this blog!|
|So much information…..what should we believe?!|
Whatever Wednesday: On Wednesday I will post … whatever I feel like posting! It may be a new favorite recipe (I like quick and easy recipes) or a blurb about a recent nutrition-related article. Who knows!?
|Money is certainly not everything, but if you can find ways to live healthy without spending all of your money on food, why not do it?!|
Please feel free to e-mail me your questions and I can add them to my weekly postings.
|Question: What can I do about my picky eater?!|
|Question: What do I eat if I have IBS? Do you have recipes for the Low Fodmap Diet?!|
|Question: I used MyFitness Pal. Should I really eat those extra calories I burn during my workout?|
Saturday Swap: On some Saturdays I will post recipes that you can swap for your favorite weekend treat. An example might be a new healthier dip for your chips, or a healthier holiday dessert for your weekend holiday party. This is just another way to help you dodge the sabotage!
