It's Nutrition Month - bring family and friends together with food.

March is Nutrition Month and here at Diaries of a Dietitian we're focusing on the potential of food to bring people together. Food is nourishment, of course, but it's also so much more. Food unites us all.
Every Wednesday in March we'll post an idea that fits the theme of bringing family and friends together to share great food and conversation.

The first idea: a Burrito Bar. This is perfect for kids to plan over March break.

Freezer meals can be a lifesaver! I try to freeze almost everything from leftovers, to marinated meat to key ingredients to our favourite dishes. They can help save you time and money and help to improve your health.

Navigating a Food Allergy

With the New Year brought a suspected milk allergy to my family. The advice from our doctor is to avoid milk until we see the allergist. So of course when you think about avoiding milk you think of the usual suspects...milk, cheese and yogurt. But in actual fact it is so much more than that.
