Why These 5 Dietitians Choose to Eat Healthy
In honor of National Nutrition Month, I asked dietitians across the country why it’s personally important for them to eat healthy. “Healthy” eating comes in many different forms and I can tell you FOR SURE that not every dietitian eats the same. That’s right! We don’t all eat kale salads and green smoothies. The reason why I personally choose to eat healthy is because I know that what I ask of my body each day would be nearly impossible if I didn’t nourish it with healthy goodness. It’s like making sure to put the right fuel in my gas tank. I feel good when I make healthy choices. I know what it’s like to be in this vicious cycle of eating unhealthy junk food and then feeling bad about myself. I just know I never want to go back to that place again. In the past two years, I have also gained a strong interest in eating for longevity. I want to be fit and feel youthful in my 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, and so on. And if I can eat to look youthful too, well, that’s a plus!
