So, here it is! My first blog post! Over the years, I have written several articles for magazines, papers, websites, and my own Positive Nutrition site. But I have hesitated to start a blog because I felt it would be too much of a responsibility that I would not have time to uphold. I also wondered if I would really want my articles to be archived. Nutrition research is constantly changing, and do I want my current recommendations to be public when they may change in a few years? However, I have recently been forced to update my website through a change in my site services. When the blog page appeared as an option, I reconsidered. Now that I have been a dietitian for almost 15 years and have been in private practice for 12 years, I realize how much of what I do is timeless. There are certain principles of nutrition, attitudes toward eating, and lifestyle habits that will always be healthy and balanced approaches. These are what I plan to share in this space.
So welcome to the Eat Well and Prosper blog, sponsored by Positive Nutrition, and managed by Julie Brake!
You can expect:
- Timeless nutrition tips & advice
- Information on resources
- Both personal & professional perspectives
- Scriptural references
Topics will include:
- Biblical perspectives on nutrition & eating
- Family nutrition
- Sports nutrition
- Disordered eating
- Nutrition as we age
- Intuitive & mindful eating
My next blog post is already in the making as my husband ran a 100-mile trail race on April 1st of this year. I was his "personal nutrition coach," and will write about the experience.
Please bear with me as I learn the ropes of blogging and try to find the time to write these posts. But also please stay tuned as I look forward to providing a reliable source of nutrition information in the midst of a culture of dieting and fear-mongering.
Eat well and prosper!
