Christina Frangione, MS, RD, CDN is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist in Huntington, NY understanding that not everyone can follow the "all foods fit" model of recovery from disordered eating. I'm here to explore all things related to barriers to "all foods fit", including food allergies and intolerances, chronic illness, co-occuring disorders, veganism and vegetarianism, and more.

If You Don’t Like to Run, Then Don’t Run

It’s Monday which means you might be thinking about starting something new like a new fitness routine. Maybe you were inspired by other peoples’ 5K or marathon pictures from the weekend. You may reason that running is just what people do to get and stay in shape. Or that it’s the activity you should choose if you’re just starting to exercise before you get on to the other activities you want to try. Or you think running is the only activity available to you that’s free and fits into your schedule.
But not everyone likes to run. And there’s absolutely no reason to try to force any activity you don’t enjoy.

If You Don’t Like Kale, Try Another Vegetable

No one food holds all the nutritional power. No one food will prevent and cure disease. If you don’t like kale, eat another vegetable (my preference). If the superfood du jour doesn’t taste good to you, don’t force it. Sure, you can try it prepared different ways and maybe you’ll find a way that you like it, but if not, try something else. Enjoyment of food is an important part of health too.
