Lunchtime Tuna Salad Sandwich!!

Q&A about Omega 3’s:

Q: What are omega 3’s?
A: Omega 3’s are a type of unsaturated fatty acid. It is different from a saturated fatty acid, by its unique chemical structure.
Q: How were omega 3’s included into this sandwich?
A: Fatty fish, like tuna, are a great source of omega 3’s.
Q: What are the healthy benefits of implementing omega 3’s into the diet?
A: Omega 3’s are used by the body to help control inflammation, in heart health and also in other inflammatory conditions.
Q: How did you make it?
A: Combine canned tuna, light mayonnaise, chopped celery, and spices to taste (pepper or dill are fan favorites) in a bowl. Cut up your favorite veggies (here I had fresh spinach and fresh tomatoes) and toast your favorite bread (shown is my favorite oat nut bread). Spread your tuna on the bottom of the bread and place the veggies on top!
Enjoy :))

Because nutrient-rich foods are familiar, easy to find and represent the five basic food groups, achieving balance and building a healthier diet can be simple and stress-free.

Registered Dietitian Intro - Get to Know Me!


Looking forward to a 2021 filled with hope, happiness and good health.

If you are considering resolutions, be kind to yourself and make sure they are achievable!

May self-care be a priority!


Are Your 2021 Resolutions Realistic?

* Spend some time thinking about what you really want to achieve this year and allow yourself ample time to complete your 2021 resolutions.

* Think of what "shifts" you can make this year, rather than a drastic change. An example would be to plan to take a walk for 30 minutes four times a week as opposed to completing an intense work out at the gym for three hours every single night. These shifts must be attainable and complement your current lifestyle.

* You are still you. Throw that "New Year, New Me" mindset out of the window. You will still have a sweet tooth, cravings, preferences, habits and patterns. If you know you have a hard time sticking to a strict diet or intense work-out regimen, do you think the beginning of a new year will change anything? Make realistic resolutions and be kind to yourself.

* YOU are doing the best YOU can! Have patience and grace!

Perfectly said! Thanks Heather!

🎤 My work here is done! Today, I’m in the Washington DC area speaking to over 200 school nurses at their professional development training day. While I was asked to speak about childhood obesity, that was not the focus of my presentation. Instead, I shared why focusing on bodyweight is not the answer.

School administrators, nurses, teachers, parents — we all can play a role! It’s time to change the topic & title from “Childhood Obesity” to “How Schools Can Help Grow Happy, Healthy, Fit Kids by Bringing Wellness into Schools. Underweight & healthy weight kids can be under-nourished too. It’s not about weight!

It’s going to take a team to tackle this topic but for this dietitian, that fight starts with getting schools to realize it has nothing to do with bodyweight and everything to do with prioritizing health, nutrition & overall wellness. Parents need tips, not a sheet that reports their child’s BMI. I’m sharing these tips and strategies on my blog today. {Link below}

Why not try Runners World's 'One-Pot Wonder'?

This was published years ago and I often return to this easy, tasteful and nutrient dense Vegetable Stew for a satisfying meal on a cold, blustery day!

Simmer 2 teaspoons canola oil in a large pot. Cook 1 diced onion and 1 sliced carrot for 5 minutes. Add 2 15-ounce cans rinsed and drained black beans, (1) 28-ounce can diced tomatoes, 1.5 cups vegetable broth, 1 cup sliced roasted red pepper, 1 tbsp. Chipotle pepper, 1 tsp. Cumin, salt and pepper to taste. Simmer 20 minutes - or all day in the crock pot - like I do! :)

Stir in zest of 1 orange, fresh thyme just before serving.

It is an excess in an age where almost a billion people go hungry, and represents a waste of the labour, water, energy, land and other inputs that went into producing that food. Food loss and food waste refer to th...

Thanks to all of our School Nutrition Dietitians, for the work you do every day for the children you serve!

By Brianna Dumas I’m not sure about you, but as a child growing up in public school, the last thing I would have ever seen on our lunch line was chili lime hummus. But that’s what PreK-2nd grade students at Waynesboro Primary School unanimously chose to add to our cafeteria menu next year, following...
