Thanksgiving is just a few days away here in America and several other holidays are coming up in the next month. If we’re being honest, this time of year can be hard for people in recovery from anything, but especially in recovery from an eating disorder or chronic dieting.
I am so excited to announce that I now offer morning, daytime, evening, and select Saturday hours in my new office for nutrition counseling. I have moved to a space in Centerport, New York (just 10 minutes East of the old office in Huntington Village). I also continue to provide virtual coaching sessions for your convenience, when appropriate.
I’ve compiled a list of 17 super easy meal ideas for you to make when you need food fast and with minimal effort. Feel free to add your own meal ideas and keep referring back to this list as needed. It can be a real life saver to have a list of your go-to meals available.
Cauliflower, a vegetable I don’t remember eating until I was in my 20’s, can now be used as a substitute for just about anything. It can be used as pizza crust, gnocchi, rice, bread, mashed potato substitute, steak, and so much more. Cauliflower is popular as a substitute because it’s lower in carbohydrates than the original food items and contains additional vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals.
You see this term used all the time. All foods fit, but only in moderation. So does that mean 1 cookie is okay but 10 aren’t okay? Are 2 cookies okay? 3? Where do we draw the line on moderation?
“I don’t care about your diet”. I’ve made posts like this before, but I always want to add an asterisk. I don’t care about society’s newest diet for weight loss or to live longer. I don’t care about the fads and the gimmicks.
However, even as a non-diet dietitian who doesn’t care about these diets, I most certainly care about my clients’ diets. Your diet helps make up who you are.
