Registered dietitians you need to follow on Instagram

These RD's and runners are great Instagram follows for healthy and fun recipes to fuel your miles

Good nutrition advice is hard to come by, but a registered dietitian is a good place to start. Making an appointment is the best way to get personalized advice, but if you’re merely looking for some nutrition inspiration, their social media pages are a good place to start.

Below are dietitians who are also runners and their blogs and Insta feeds are filled with recipe ideas to get you through the winter.

I have volunteered to be the food coordinator for my son’s class at school this year. It means I get to help organize all the food for their parties. This is so up my alley! Since the teacher knows I’m a dietitian, I should probably make sure there are some nutrient-rich options to go along with all the other tasty treats. So, this is what I made for their Halloween party… chocolate covered California strawberry ghosts. The boys loved making them with me; they were super quick and easy. It doesn’t hurt that California strawberries are great to #SnackOn8, packed with vitamin C and fibre and taste delicious this time of year. Here’s what you need… 25 California strawberries 200 g white baking chocolate 1 tsp coconut oil Small tube of blue icing Microwave the chocolate and coconut oil until melted and smooth. Dip strawberries in and place on baking sheet. Let harden in freezer for about 5 min. Then decorate with the icing tube. Voila! Happy Halloween! #CaliforniaStrawberries #ad #happyhalloween #healthysnacks #healthysnacking #healthyeats #schooltreats #halloweentreats #healthyhalloween #healthyhalloweentreats #healthyschooltreats #healthykids #foodonthego #eatonthego #strawberries #nutrition #healthyliving #california #berries #inseasonnow #wholefood #realfood #strawberry #getsnacking #schoolsafe #okanagannutrition #kelownadietitian #dietitianmom #kelownanutritionist
