In the realm of nutrition and healthy living, expert dietitians play a crucial role in guiding individuals toward well-informed dietary choices. Recognizing the significance of their role, many dietitians extend their influence beyond traditional consultations, utilizing platforms such as books and podcasts to share their wealth of knowledge.
At Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating, we are proud to feature our exceptional Registered Dietitian Ambassadors, who contribute to this wealth of information. They recommend insightful books and engaging podcasts that can serve as valuable resources for those seeking to enhance their understanding of nutrition and make informed choices for a healthier lifestyle. Explore these recommended resources and embark on a journey towards improved well-being with the guidance of our knowledgeable dietitian ambassadors.
For those who prefer auditory learning, the podcast realm offers a plethora of options curated by expert dietitians. Anne Lauterjung RDN, CDCES, Diabetes Education Coordinator at OSF Medical Group shares that “The Breakthrough Emotional Eating Podcast” - provides practical tips on how to identify personal triggers that cause emotional eating. Anne says, “Her solutions are thoughtful and simple to apply. The Host, Kristin Jones, is the owner and CEO of Kristin Jones Coaching, where she specializes in helping women address and manage issues with emotional eating and help them develop a healthy relationship with food that doesn't involve counting calories, or ever dieting again. Her hope is to share her knowledge and first-hand experiences with women in order to empower them to truly embrace and love who they are and to learn what they need emotionally in order to live their best life.”
Haleigh Augspols MS, RD, LDN, registered dietitian nutritionist at Health Loft says, “I love listening to the podcast “WhatTheActualFork” by Sam Previte who is an intuitive eating registered dietitian. There are so many great topics I share with my patients from body image, dealing with negative talk, the truth behind weight loss drugs and challenging the food police. These topics allow people to see that health is more than just a number on the scale.”
Brittney Moutray MS, RD, LDN, CDCES, registered dietitian nutritionist and diabetes educator at the Veteran’s Administration, recommends “Love Your Gut” podcast by Dr Heather Finley – an RD with a doctorate in clinical nutrition. Brittney adds, “You will find this podcast to be full of helpful information.” Dr. Finley was on a mission after struggling with her own issues to empower them to find life changing and lasting solutions to their digestive issues.
Tara Ketner MS, RDN, LDN, registered dietitian nutrition at DaVita Dialysis says, “I love “Science Vs” they choose a topic, whether it’s seed oils, caffeine, and a variety of other topics. They’re not just nutrition based but they argue both sides of it and use science base evidence to support it.” The podcast tries to set straight what’s fact, what’s not, and what’s somewhere in between. They do the hard work of sifting through all the science so you don’t have to.
Miranda Reinhardt MS, RD, LDN, a Registered Dietitian for Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating loves sports nutrition books by Nancy Clark MS, RD, a registered dietitian, and board-certified specialist in sports dietetics for years. “She is a respected figure in sports nutrition, and her expertise lends credibility to the information presented in her books. She has a knack for translating complex nutritional science into user-friendly language. Her books are accessible to both athletes and non-experts, making the information easy to understand and apply. Recognizing that different sports have unique nutritional demands, she tailors her advice to cater to the specific needs of athletes engaged in various activities. I appreciate this sports-specific approach. I also love that she promotes a balanced approach to nutrition, avoiding extreme diets or fads. Her emphasis on a well-rounded, wholesome diet contributes to long-term health and performance benefits.”
Alyssa Salz MS, RD, LDN, Lead Registered Dietitian at Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating loves Elle Krieger’s cookbook “So Easy.” “This cookbook is full of effortless meals that make healthy eating easy and delicious. I love that her recipes include a variety of spices, fresh ingredients, and easily approachable meals. Her food philosophy is realistic, balanced, and focuses on “delicious-healthy-easy.” She separates meals into “quick meals” such as “breakfast- at the ready, lunch-to go, and dinner- rush hour” and meals that require a little more time and energy such as “breakfast- at leisure, lunch- at home, and dinner- kickin’ back.” There is an option for everyone!” Elle also has a fabulous podcast too.
Alyssa also loves the cookbook “The Food Allergy Mama’s Easy, Fast Family Meals,” by Kelly Rudnicki. “Having a son with multiple food allergies, this cookbook has made preparing meals for the whole family not only safe but tasty. Her recipes sneak in a lot of different vegetables, and she offers options for avoiding different common allergens so you can make the recipes work for any different diet needs. I love how she includes Tips & Tricks and Kitchen Essentials which is helpful for anyone new to cooking for someone with food allergies.”
