Dietitians Eat Junk Too
Dietitians snack and eat junk food too. Yes, I am a registered dietitian. That does not mean that I do not eat chips, candy, fries, pizza, etc. I do not eat them every day but I do eat them. I focus on a balanced diet that is high in whole grains, fruit, vegetables, low fat dairy, beans, etc. In fact, my sister jokes to me that I eat kale every single day and my family jokes about how healthy I eat. I hope that by the product reviews that I post about snack foods that you understand that I do not eat 5 of these per day. Also, I am not recommending that anybody eat tons of snacks per day. Everything in moderation (except fruits and veggies) are the way to go.
If I told a client never to eat chips, candy or whatever junk that they like, they would laugh in my face. Life is about balance. If you know that you are going to go out to eat for dinner, eat a lighter lunch packed with vegetables. Drink lots of water, eat less heavy foods, etc. Just because I am a RD does not mean that I am going to eat a 100% clean and perfect diet.
Also, as stated in my "Meet the RD" section, the main point of my blog is product reviews and giveaways. I do share healthy recipes, "Ask the RD" posts and family related posts as well but that is not my main focus. I love to try all different kinds of products and just because I am a dietitian does not mean that I cannot review a pair of shoes or whatever I like.
I thank all of you who have been faithful readers. If you have any questions about the way that I eat, what I review or how I live my life, please feel free to email me. I would love to clarify it further.
