Hey guys! Happy Friday! Hope you are ready for this holiday weekend!!
This week has been pretty low key for me, although I did enjoy a Charlotte Knights game on Wednesday night with some of my RD friends and my roommate, Micah:
Please ignore the way I look… I walked to the stadium (super sweaty) and then it rained a little bit (crazy hair).
We were playing a team from Durham. I honestly don’t know if we won or lost because it was tied in the 9th inning and we left after that.
I did enjoy a funnel cake at the game. #dietitianapproved.
Nutrition in the News
Here are some news stories for you from the week:
Butter isn’t good or bad for you <—for all of the people who are now putting it in their coffee (??)
Startups redesigning the breast pump: can’t really submit a commentary here since I’ve never used one but it sounds like a good idea!
Children are drinking sports drinks unnecessarily: This was a huge topic with a ton of patients when I did outpatient counseling
Diabetes makes heart attacks 50% more deadly: why there is really a push for heart-healthy diet education in patients who have uncontrolled diabetes
Any fun plans for the 4th of July? I am not quite sure what I’m doing yet because a lot of my friends will be out of town and I have to work (womp womp)
