Egg Whites Only? Think Again! | A Dietitian Explains

Hey all! I'm so excited to bring you this AMAZING guest post by Caroline Susie, a registered dietitian from Dallas, Texas, y'all! I met her on social media - and flipping immediately loved her message and all she talks about on her blog! When I read that she loved research, and that her mission was to do her best to tell you 'why you should give a shit about food' - I knew she was my soul-sister! Raise your hand if you give a shit about what you eat! I get the question about egg whites a TON in my practice. I thought the myth was left in the '90's - where it belonged! However - it still comes up. Fear over egg yolks. Gah! Eat...

Should I Drink Charcoal Water?

Should I drink charcoal water? | A Dietitian Perspective

I don’t know what it is about summer, but I just can’t seem to get my creative butt in gear to blog post for y’all! I’ve been painting with water colors, taking photography, and other creative things, but my drive to write has hit an all-time low. However, a discussion I had the other day with a girlfriend sparked the curiosity in me when she asked me about charcoal water, and if she should be drinking it. She had seen on Pinterest (read: the place where bad nutrition information goes to thrive) and was wondering if it had any benefits whatsoever. What is charcoal water? First off. What is charcoal water? It tends to be water, with activated charcoal dissolved into it, however there seems to be a...

Are Carbs Bad? A Dietitian Explains.

Are Carbs Bad? A Dietitian Explains

Are Carbs Bad?  A Dietitian Explains. Are carbs bad? This is a question I get on a regular basis. Or rather, an opinion I get on a regular basis. Served up right alongside guilt - a feeling ALL my readers know should NEVER be associated with food. Ever, ever. I was SO excited when Andrea D'Ambrosio of Dietetic Directions so kindly offered to guest blog for me - because she had written a super sassy, evidence-based piece of literary genius on the matter. Andrea is a dietitian from Ontario, who I happened to connect with over social media. We share a ton of similar interests, including encouraging people to LOVE and appreciate food. Seeing as she is Italian, carbs are a main-staple of her upbringing, and well, so...

How To Eat Healthy While Travelling

How to Eat Healthy While Travelling

I’ll admit. I’ve been putting off blogging for a while. And the longer I put it off, the more pressure I felt to produce something wonderful for you. Today marks 1 month from my last blog post – a far departure of my goal to blog every two weeks. So, to get myself out of a rut, I’m going to blog about something comfortable to me. Feeling a bit of writer’s block, a lack of inspiration, I asked my husband what he wanted to know about. And you know what? He had a great answer. How do I eat healthy while travelling? Such a great question, one I frequently get with my low-fodmappers, and those working towards weight management. In this post, I’m going to address the...

Avocado Pesto Pasta

Avocado Pesto Pasta

Avocado Pesto Pasta I like avocados. But I can't say I'm avocado-crazy. I see all these people on social media who I'm quite certain, exclusively live off of the things. While I appreciate them, I find I prefer when they're served TO me, rather than me having to figure out how I'm going to use them, and how to time it just so, so I enjoy the avocado on a day where its perfectly ripe. Cause we all know if I wait one more day, it will be mushy and full of brown spots. Last week, I was inspired to do something fantastic with an avocado. So. I bought basil, I bought an avocado, and I used all that social media inspiration to create avocado pesto pasta. And...
