Wow. What a month.
Currently, I'm in the second portion of my dietetic internship. This rotation is the food service rotation and I'm working in a public school system. It's very interesting to be here and see what goes on in our school cafeterias. Most of it is good, but some of the political stuff (like lack of funding for good food) is a bit harsh. The director I work with tried very hard to change the minds of students and teachers that school lunch is not unhealthy, but years of talk about "unhealthy cafeteria food" is hard to change over night. So, I'm here helping with this process, and let me tell you.... middle school kids are the hardest to convince. I swear, last week when I visited a few of the middle school classes to talk about what they thought of school lunch, I left feeling extremely stressed out. I almost felt like I needed to smoke a cigarette or something (but, of course, I don't smoke....). Those kids are demanding. I really have respect for teachers and the lunch ladies that work with them every day.
The title of this post is to let you all know that today, I'm featured in an article on the site, Precision Nutrition, for an "expert profile". The article outlines what I eat and do for exercise each day. Now, when this article was written, I hadn't started my dietetic internship, so things were a bit different, but the food choices are really about the same.
Click here to check out the article, and to see some super cute pics of my "canis lupus familiaris" (aka, my doggie friends that I walk everyday :) )
Note: if you can't access the article for any reason, let me know and I'll post the whole thing here.
Oh, and just for the heck of it, I posted another wedding pic since I'm finally getting all those organized in albums after many busy months.
Happy Turkey Week!
