Nutrition and Health Philosophy

As a Registered Dietitian, I think a lot about nutrition and health.  My health and nutrition philosophy is constantly evolving and changing.  I am an advocate of preventative healthcare.  It is so imporant to take the steps to avoid any preventable illnesses and diseases.  As the name of my blog implies, I firmly believe that life is all aboutbalance!

Nutrition is simply the process of being nourished.  Food is a necessary component of life.  My personal food philosophy focuses on eating whole, fresh food as much possible while incorporating plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, healthy fats and protein.  I try to avoid processed food for the most part…the less un-natural ingredients on a label the better!  As much as I love healthy eating, I think that in order to maintain quality of life you have to indulge every now and then!

Exercise is also an important part of living a balanced, healthy life.  I love to exercise and enjoy trying new exercises!  My exercise motto is “I never regret it when I do it, but I ALWAYS regret it when I don’t”!  Even the smallest amount of exercise is better than nothing.

I am still striving to reach my ideal health balance!  As a recent graduate, I am embarking on a new journey in my life and hope to continue focusing on my own health and well-being while helping others improve their health in my career as a registered dietitian.
