Thanks to my RD peers for the inspiration!
I have finally entered the 21st century with the rest of the progressive registered dietitians I know. Forgive me as I attempt to get up to speed. Welcome to Neily on Nutrition!
What can you expect? Likely whatever is on my mind. Which often may be prompted by things I see, hear, or read and feel the need to react to. It might be silly. It might be serious. I do expect a lot of what I will be writing about will be nutrition and health in the media. There is so much information on the internet who knows what to believe. I will try to keep you abreast of what’s hot in the nutrition news. Although I make no promises because I’ve no idea where this blog is headed!
Being a registered dietitian, I do have a passion for food – eating it, making it, talking about it. So expect me to muse on various culinary inspirations. I grew up in the kitchen at my mother’s side. She’s a fabulous cook and taught me everything I know. I remember her telling me to “go in the garden and get our salad.” Ah, to pick fresh lettuce, beefsteak tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers and enjoy the freshness of it all. Although I really took it all for granted back then. When I was out on my own, buying tomatoes for the first time and expecting the deliciousness of what I grew up with. Reality set in. What a disappointment!
I long for the days to pick my salad from my own garden. But I live in Texas now, not the Midwest. I know it’s possible but you do need sun which I have none. A wonderfully shaded backyard but not conducive to growing things. Unfortunately too I was not blessed with a green thumb. And then I have Great Danes that I’m sure would have a field day playing. Hmmm, but I can always dream and what’s that saying? In dreams become realities.
Thanks for reading and I do hope you stick around and read more! Cheers!
