Welcome to our blog! I wanted to use this initial post to introduce our blog, tell you a little bit about myself, and conquer one of the most outlandish myths out there.
I’ve been a Registered Dietitian (RD) for over 5 years and get questions every day about food, nutrition, and exercise. Navigating the big food and nutrition world can get pretty confusing...even for us dietitians. We’re excited to make the this world a little less confusing for you and share our journey of educating and learning! We’ll be blogging to clear up misconceptions, educate those interested, and get more high-quality nutrition and exercise information out on the web.
Fueled. Fit. Balanced.
