One of the most important things my clients work on when we begin our coaching relationship is to honor hunger and fullness. It’s one of the best ways to break away from the diet mentality. There are many examples of how this propels my clients forward in establishing a healthy relationship with food.

Nutrition is science. Get advice from professionals that studied the science—Registered Dietitian Nutritionists

March is National Nutrition Month

National Nutrition Month 2015 bite into a healthy lifestyle

Wednesday, March 11, 2015 is National Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Day.
Yes—we have our own day! I love being an RDN.

In 1998 I obtained the credential registered dietitian (RD). In 2013 the addition of nutritionist was formally added to it—registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN). Our profession has the choice to use RD or RDN and I quickly adopted RDN because:

  1. Few people know what an RD is, unfortunately.
  2. People seem to have a better understanding of the word nutritionist. But do people realize in most states anyone can call themselves a nutritionist? No certification or credentialing required. None. Zero. Zip.
  3. All registered dietitians are nutritionists but not all nutritionists are registered dietitians. Continue reading

Beware Chipotle’s Burrito Bowl!

I enjoy Chipotle. They have good fresh food. I learned long ago however that good fresh food does not always mean good for the waist line. Most everyone http://www.dreamstime.com/royalty-free-stock-photography-chipotle-restaurant-chelsea-new-york-mexican-grill-chain-more-than-restaurants-around-world-image39039407watching their weight knows to avoid the burrito at Chipotle and opt for the burrito bowl instead. The burrito is more like a body pillow—the tortilla alone adding an additional 300 calories.

So indeed the burrito bowl is better. Nonetheless the calories can really add up if you’re not careful. Lesson learned from my client. “I should have looked up the information before I went. But I honestly had no idea. I thought I was eating so healthy.” Yes, she was but as I’ve written before it’s easy to overeat even healthy food. Continue reading

What’s in Neily’s Slow Cooker? Chicken with Pasta Sauce served over Angel Hair

There are staples I always have in my kitchen. I wanted to make something really simple with my slow cooker so this is what I added to it:

  • Frozen What's in Neily's Slow Cooker?chicken thighs, boneless, skinless (4)
  • Can of pasta sauce (24oz)
  • Can of diced tomatoes (14.5oz)
  • Can of tomato paste (6oz)

That was it. Hours later I had the makings of a perfect meal (4 servings). Cooked up some angel hair pasta (my favorite!) and good to go. All it needed was a nice green salad. (Click to see video) Continue reading

Homemade 4-Bean Soup – in honor of National Homemade Soup Day!

I love Mondays! Really I do—especially because I work for myself. My boss is the best!

One of the reasons for my love of Mondays is Meatless Mondays! After enjoying a beautifully cooked steak and piece of salmon Sunday during my friend Walker’s Super Bowl party, it was time to lay low on the animal protein. (Love that about being a flexitarian—I don’t deny myself red meat, it’s my occasional treat.)

Walker super bowl party

I volunteered to bring soup to Walker’s party—perfect time of year for that. AND this week there is a special day for homemade soup. Join me in celebrating National Homemade Soup Day today won’t you? Continue reading
