I have been blessed to have had many amazing jobs as a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist. I’m also a Slow Food enthusiast, so I promote “good, clean and fair” food in all the work that do, including my job as a Wild Oats lifestyle blogger. I shop on a budget, and I personally really appreciate that Wild Oats offers nutritious food at an affordable price.
Registered Dietitian Nutritionists are credentialed medical nutrition therapy providers. They work in many different environments: hospitals, community health clinics, private practice, government, corporate, media, gyms, schools and even grocery stores.
All registered dietitians are nutritionists – but not all nutritionists are registered dietitians. It’s very important when you need diet and nutrition advice to seek the help of a medically trained professional who is credentialed, because there is assurance that you will receive information that is safe, trustworthy and research based.
I believe the best way to watch what you E.A.T.: Embrace life. Amaze yourself. Try everything! This is the health and wellness motto I live by. Please join me at the virtual table on WildOats.com/blog, and share with us your own healthy life motto.
