I’ve decided to go with a slightly different direction of the blog. One that will allow me to regularly post of piglets, canning your own food, and splitting our farm life between the two homes- in the country and in a city (hopefully soon to be out of the city and by soon I guess I mean 5 years-ah).
I wanted to post about my internship experience, but quite honestly, it’s not something I enjoy writing about here on the blog. I’ve had the time- but lost the interest to share what it is I do in the hospitals in this space. Plus with all of the confidentiality/HIPAA laws, I’d rather stick to my piggies and chickanos- they don’t mind if I talk about them here.
Chance and I have been talking for a couple of years now about starting a blog- or at least making YouTube videos of our farm life. This will be a running experiment. The blog will be dedicated still to food, since that is my main role within our farm life, but also to the meanderings of things like raising hogs for meat, chickens for entertainment (and occasional eggs when they feel like it), agroforestry, hunting, and basically whatever else comes our way on our journey.
Let’s end it with a piglet….
I need to say this for my sanity:
NOT ALL DIETITIANS ARE ALIKE.
We all have our own personal food philosophies.
Don’t generalize my profession into a field of professionals who drink low milk, eat low fat peanut butter (why??) and sugar-free desserts. AND we definitely do not all support one of the largest nutrition organizations sponsoring corporations like Kraft, Coco-Cola, and Nestle.
I enjoy REAL FOODS- and yes, even donuts, butter, and creamy mac and cheese!
We’ve lost touch with all three of these fundamentals of nutrition. Our society has also forgotten how to eat real foods and my career goal is guiding people to make food a top priority in their lives again.
This outburst is in large thanks due to a blog I read recently generalizing ‘nutritionist’ from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND) as sponsoring corporations like Kraft, Mars Candy, and Nestle. RD’s do not have to be a part of AND. Unfortunately, AND is the largest nutrition organization out there. As a future RD, I am fighting against a billion dollar industry- the food industry that is.
It’s not easy- this profession I’m in. Especially, when you have every Tom, Dick, and Harry, who thinks that just because they eat “healthy” that they also have the right to tell everyone else what is healthy. Well, you don’t. Not unless you have the education and experience to back it up. It’s not fair. I recommend looking into any medical professional’s background that you are seeking advice from to see where they stand.
