Happy What I Ate Wednesday. Can you believe tomorrow is Thanksgiving? I feel like this whole fall has been a total blur. This time of year, a common worry I hear from a lot of clients and patients is overeating at holiday meals. To help put your mind at ease, I shared some keep-it-real tips on Now Cure Me so you can avoid that Thanksgiving food guilt trap.

I’m hitting the road soon to go see the folks, so I’m going to jump right in to this week’s “what I ate” style look into what a real-life dietitian (yours truly) eats on a normal day. We all have to find our own sense of moderation when it comes to balancing healthy food with occasional treats, so here’s a little peak at a recent example of mine. This was a Friday when I worked at the hospital and then met a friend for dinner.

Have a great day!
