Registered Dietitian Day Mar 10

While I was customizing my blog, I found out that today is Registered Dietitian Day! This is a big thing for me, as I would like to go back to school to become an RD. My work in pharmacy over the last 5-ish years, my love of food and mine and my husband’s weight loss plan has really got me interested in WHY we eat the things we do and why we shouldn’t eat some of them as well. Vitamins and minerals are so important to how our bodies function and most people don’t get enough of them. Americans also tend to eat way too many processed foods that don’t actually contain the vitamins and minerals that the same food made from scratch at home might have. I also used to always wonder at the supplement choices that pharmacy customers made. Why extra CoQ-10 for heart health? When do you NEED B-complex as opposed to thinking it will help cheer you up?

I’m glad there’s a day to celebrate the nutritionists of the world striving to make us healthy.
