Have you seen Real Life Nutrition yet? It’s a new expert blog at WebMD.com. I am one of the bloggers, and I am in great company. I share blogging responsibilities with four dietitians: Janet Helm, David Grotto, Carolyn Brown, and Maryann Jacobsen.
My latest blog is about why I am still taking multivitamins, despite the recent negative news about them, and other dietary supplements.
A friend of mine who just had a baby said she was searching the internet for how to lose the baby weight and she came up with this piece on WebMD. Good stuff!
I’m so glad that it’s October, because that means pumpkin puree is on supermarket shelves!
I LOVE pumpkin and use it in a variety of recipes, including soups, breads, pancakes, pasta dishes, and smoothies.
Check out MyPlate for Moms on FB for a delicious and nutritious pumpkin smoothie recipe. Pumpkin is packed with potassium to keep your blood pressure normal, and is brimming with beta-carotene, which lends color and protects cells against damage. Plus, this pumpkin smoothie is downright delicious and it’s a great way to work in a serving of dairy AND vegetables, and using eftover pumpkin puree.
