Happy Registered Dietitian Day to all my fellow dietitians out there! On this day I hope you all eat something delicious! On this day I want to remind you that dietitians are humans too. We enjoy food, all food, and sometimes we too struggle with our relationship with it.
In all seriousness, though, today is a day to acknowledge the hard work that we put into becoming dietitians and staying dietitians. People throw around the term nutritionist without realizing that that word is kind of like a slap in the face. And don’t get me started on people who spell dietitian with a “c”. We work hard for our title, our credentials, and our degree. Therefore, there is a day to celebrate us.
Today and every day we are proud of our knowledge and experience. We are proud of our degree and proud to share our tips for enjoying food and living life to your fullest. Couldn’t have celebrated better than with two of my best dietitian friends drinking margaritas and eating nachos and tacos!
