Taylor Wolfram Blog

Have you ever heard the recommendation to eat every 3 to 4 hours? There are several reasons why registered dietitians endorse this. Dieting, fasting and ignoring hunger are not health-promoting behaviors. Eating regularly is important for both physical and mental health! When it comes to nutrition, there are a few core building blocks required for a good foundation: Adequacy (eating enough food) Consistency (eating at regular intervals) Variety (eating a diversity of foods) Of course there is more to nutrition than these building blocks, but if these aren’t in place, more detailed nutrition ..read more

Shift a month-long challenge into a lifelong commitment to compassion! Veganuary is a 31-day challenge to “try vegan” for the month of January and beyond.

Have you ever wondered how it’s possible to meet your nutrient needs without tracking your food intake? You’re not alone! As a registered dietitian, this is a common question I receive. And, it’s a piece of advice I see doled out to the general public on social media that makes me cringe! The reality is we don’t need to meticulously measure and analyze every bite we eat in order to eat plenty of nutrients.  And, as someone who specializes in disordered eating, I’ve seen firsthand (and have experienced myself) how food tracking can become disordered. This may not happen for everyone, but ..read more

What is a “Balanced Meal” and Why Does it Matter?
Taylor Wolfram Blog
by Taylor
6M ago
A common topic in nutrition is the concept of balanced meals. But what does that even mean and why is it so important? If your first thought upon seeing the title of this post is “borrrrrrrrring,” I totally get it! And, something I tell my clients often, is that sound nutrition guidance is kind of boring.

Instead we’re lured by outlandish claims, miracle cure-alls and quick fixes. Those d ..read more

Ever since taking the leap out of “traditional” full-time employment into self-employment as a nutrition entrepreneur, I’ve written an annual update and reflection.  I do these as much for myself as I do for you because I’m terrible at maintaining a personal journaling routine and these posts are really fun and helpful to look back on!

That is one thing that I know will never change! Last year’s post had a t ..read more
