Happy Tuesday, and better late than never! I had a test and case study for Medical Nutrition Therapy II today, as well as a fruit cup sale for my school’s nutrition organization. All in all, it was a very dietetics-centered day! That’s pretty appropriate since by the time you read this, it’ll be National American Dietitian Day! In honor of that, I wanted to share six dietitians on social media that I’m thankful for. These dietitians have different audiences and are on different platforms, but they all are interested in educating others in their specific expertise. Be sure to check out their social media and give them a follow!
If You Want to Learn More About Nutrition
Abbey Sharp (Abbey’s Kitchen, YouTube, @abbeyskitchen)
I know Abbey through her YouTube channel. She posts reviews of other YouTubers “What I Eat in a Day” videos, tests trendy lifestyle products, and explains more about an Intuitive Eating mindset. Her tagline is “Science and Sass,” and she lives up to it in every way.
Anne Mauney (FannetasticFood, @fannetasticfood)
I found Anne’s blog back in high school and loved following her adventures in nutrition, running, and raising a family. Her blog is actually what helped me learn pursue dietetics and start this blog! Anne, if you’re reading this, thanks for inspiring me to become an RD!
Lindsay Livingston (The Lean Green Bean, @theleangreenbean)
Lindsay was another blogger I found back in high school. If you’re looking for a great source of healthy, filling recipes, I’d highly recommend giving her blog a visit!
If You’re Serious About Dietetics
Roberto Couto (@rcnutritionconsulting209)
Roberto is not quite a dietitian, but I enjoy his content, so I thought I’d make an exception for him. Currently, he’s an RD2Be finishing up his dietetic internship. His Instagram does a great job of showing what it’s like to be an intern. He also posts challenging nutrition quizzes each week to help you test your undergrad or internship knowledge.
Heather Caplan (RD Real Talk)
I love Heather’s podcast because she talks with other experts in our field and in healthcare about current issues. Her interviews are varied and insightful for understanding what’s going on in dietetics. You can listen on Apple Podcast, Soundcloud, and Spotify.
If You Need to Laugh
Dietetics Anonymous (@dietetics_anonymous)
God bless whoever’s behind this Instagram! This account mostly posts relatable dietetics memes, but also goes after misinformation on the platform (and isn’t afraid to share their escapades). We love an advocate for our profession ;).
That’s it for this week! If you happen to know a dietetics student or someone who’s interested in nutrition, feel free to share these six dietitians I’m thankful for with them. Happy RD Day!
Until next time,
