Today I had an excellent talk with a dietitian. Our conversation ranged from good vegetarian options for protein to tips and tricks to ensure a healthy diet. We were even able to talk about my marathon training.
No matter who you are or what your diet is like, I really recommend having at least one meeting with a registered dietitian. It’s a great way to keep your health in mind and find new ways to enjoy eating right. Did you know having healthy meal options prepared as much as possible, sitting on the counter ready has been proven to assist people in making better meal choices? My conversation today also inspired an incredibly healthy grocery trip and I spent almost two hours preparing fruit salads, trail mixes and lunches all pre-portioned.
Depending on where you live, you may be able to call a dietitian free of charge. For the province of B.C. the number is 8-1-1. If your province doesn’t offer a dial-a-dietitian service, your health care may cover the costs of an in-person visit. Put in a little effort and check it out! You’ll be glad you did.
