Two things I love about the nutrition/dietetics profession is we have a whole month dedicated to food & a day to celebrate Registered Dietitians :)
Yesterday, March 12th, was National Registered Dietitian Day!
I can’t even begin to tell you all how appreciative I am for every dietitian I have interacted with – they are all so full of passion, joy and overall just really nice people. It seems like every dietitian really wants to help out the #rd2bes, which I could not be more thankful for!
It makes sense that National Registered Dietitian Day falls in March because March is National Nutrition Month!
“Enjoy the Taste of Eating Right” is the theme for this year and I think it is a wonderful theme! Healthy foods isn’t synonymous with boring and flavorless food – it is about eating what is healthy and delicious based on your preferences! When I work with clients who struggle to enjoy fruits and vegetables, it is about finding a seasoning or preparation technique that suits them.
Another aspect I adore about the dietetics community – we all have different opinions, taste preferences and beliefs about food & health. No one person has the same thought because there is “perfect” way. Although, I think we can all agree that health is one of the greatest gifts we are given :)
