Did you know that peanut butter and nuts should not be counted as sources of protein in your diet?
This is one of the many interesting, and sometimes surprising tips I learned from my friend, Stephanie Mull, a Registered Dietitian and Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics (CSSD) in my interview with her this week.
Steph and I have been chatting lately about food, nutrition and diet. Since becoming moms we’ve realized that having both diet and exercise optimized is critical for our bodies to be lean, strong and high-functioning. I want to share some of the insights that have come out of my conversation with Steph with you here, in “Top Nutrition Tips for Moms”.
As a mom of two boys, Steph brings her personal and professional experience with energy and enthusiasm. I know you’ll like this.
A few of the great topics we cover include:
- Eat more protein. Steph explains how more protein should not equal more fat, and some of the differences between protein sources.
- You don’t always need more calories during breast feeding. We have great insights about this myth!
- Learn an easy tip for making sure you have the right ratio of food groups with every meal you eat.
- Become more mindful of how you talk about your body and your food choices, for yourself and your family. Remember, your kids are watching!
For those of you who need more guidance finding balanced nutrition that works for your specific needs, Stephanie is available for online consulting and can be contacted through her website, www.smullnutrition.net.
