So we all know I am not nutritionally perfect despite the letters after my name. Yup, that’s right, even RD’s especially MOM RD’s who work full time have the same struggles as other parents.

Food can be considered hidden when you find candy or wrappers under the bed, in the closet, in a shoebox or behind [...]
Like I’ve said before, I’m kind of sensitive to the idea of categorizing foods as either “good” or “bad,” not just because I specialize in eating disorders as a professional RD, but also because—on a personal level—I too once restricted myself from sweets and seemingly evil foods. (Really, who hasn’t at some point in their lives?) My approach may not be black or white, but it’s simple. Rather than distinguishing food as good or bad, I prefer to consider their [...]
