Beware of “Dr. Google” When Looking for Nutrition Help for Your Kidney Disease Diagnosis

In this digital age, our first instinct when looking for information is to turn to Google. Whether we are searching for the address of the nearest gas station, when the next season of our favorite show will drop, an image of a tardigrade, or the weekly flavors at Crumbl Cookie®, Google can provide a wealth of information. You probably just stopped reading to google an image of a tardigrade, didn’t you? While Google is an important tool for information access, relying on health information from the internet, especially regarding kidney disease, can be very confusing and, in some cases, do READ MORE

The FNCE Experience

I had the pleasure of attending the 2022 Food and Nutrition Conference and Expo (aka FNCE) in October. This is a national conference for registered dietitians and dietetic technicians, registered. So basically, thousands of nutrition professionals converge on an unsuspecting town to learn about emerging science, network with like-minded individuals, and partake in delicious food and beverages.   Britt and I decided to record a short podcast episode to talk about our experience at FNCE. We learned a lot of great information that we will share with you in upcoming episodes. We even do a live taste test of some READ MORE

Self-care begins with gratitude

When Annette brought up writing an article on self-care, my mind immediately went to the word gratitude. In my eyes, one of the best forms of self-love and care is to take a moment out of your day to give thanks for what you already have. It is a practice that reminds you to think about the positive things in your life. I find that it also helps to give me a sense of purpose. Having daily gratitude practices can significantly improve one’s mental health. And that is what self-care is all about!             I popped on to PubMed and READ MORE

C is for Cottage Cheese

Before I dive into cottage cheese, I want to give you a little background on why I chose cottage cheese for the letter ‘C’ above the plethora of other yummy ‘C’ foods. Growing up I would be classified as your typical “picky eater”. I survived on peanut butter sandwiches, chicken nuggets, mashed potatoes, corn and green beans. That was pretty much the extent of my culinary palette. While my palette grew some as I reached adulthood, it really exploded when I began studying nutrition and dietetics. I do not want to give the impression that this was simple. I didn’t READ MORE

What is Nutrition Anthropology?

Before we jump into Nutrition Anthropology specifically, I think it would be a good idea to define anthropology itself. According to Merriam-Webster, anthropology is “the science of human beings; especially: the study of human beings and their ancestors through time and space and in relation to physical character, environmental and social relations, and culture”. Nutritional anthropology narrows that focus to food and food systems. With that in mind, let’s talk about what I mean by Nutrition Anthropology and why it is the title of this blog and the future podcast. Registered dietitians are often touted as the food experts. I READ MORE
