    Here's what a real nutritionist eats

    I have to post this link:

    http://www.fitday.com/fitness-articl...-of-a-pro.html

    Somehow I ended up on FitDay's email list (I don't know how) and this was in my inbox. I am NOT posting this here to mock the nutritionist, because up until I was diagnosed with wheat and dairy allergies, her post would have been completely reasonable to me.

    Since going primal, I am so much healthier, but this was a good reminder to me of how far away from CW I needed to go to get healthy. Fiber One and skim milk anyone?

    "Food and eating are two of my favorite things. In fact, those are two of the reasons I became a registered dietitian."

    from the looks of her food journal, it seems like she hates food. is she punishing her diet for a reason? skim milk with her cereal? ground turkey in her stir-fry? gross! reading this made me hungry. even if i were still on the conventional diet i find her food journal seriously lacking in... well, food.
    to think that this is the example we're supposed to follow!

    Sorry, what were we talking about again - food? Right, uhm, when I came to that sentence my eyes glazed over and I started to snore and quickly scrolled down the page. Then closed the browser tab.

    Ah, well. I too thought that was the correct way of eating just a year ago, but I could never keep it up. Why? Because I was so dang hungry and tired all the time.
    Sometimes you need to be told the truth in order to be able to see it.

    I see grain people...

    Exist in shadow, drifting away.

    "I always use ground turkey instead of ground beef because it is lower in fat, and to me, tastes the same."

    Well no wonder she eats such boring food... she obviously has some seriously dysfunctional taste buds. =P

    I'm blogging again, at least a little bit.

    Lol. If she thinks they taste the same...then em, good for her? She can always pick the cheapest option with no downside. I have no idea how somebody would really think they taste the same though.

    Ok, I'm not going to knock ground turkey. I like it, but not for it's nutritional profile. It's a nice change in flavor from time to time.

    Today for breakfast I had nut "cereal." I'm visiting friends down in NYC, in a TINY studio apartment with practically zero fridge space, so I had to get creative with my personal meals. I combined sunflower seeds, slivered almonds, chopped walnuts, raw pumpkin seeds and raisins. Add a little heavy cream and it's like cereal.

    Anyways, long story short, I was eating my "cereal" and a thought came to me. "Wow, this is good! This is just like regular cereal without all of those annoying flakes!"

    That sounds delish Diana. Have you been to the Union Square Farmer's Market yet? Any primal plans for NYC?
