Food Myths

False information is a common occurrence these days, and the world of food is no exception. As a dietitian, I am frequently fielding questions regarding food myths. Following are just a few common food myths, debunked!

Bad News: How To Help Your Kids And Yourself

Thirty years ago, if you wanted to catch up on the news, you read a daily paper or watched a nightly newscast. Today, the news catches up with us through 24-hour news channels and social media feeds. And most of it seems to be bad news.

Fresh Choices
If you’ve eaten any fresh fruits or vegetables at Boone Hospital Center, as a patient or visitor, you may have noticed them tasting extra crisp and flavorful. But you probably didn’t know they were grown right here in the Columbia area.
Weighted Questions
Anyone who’s made an effort to lose weight is familiar with the flood of well-meaning advice from family and friends. Unfortunately, good intentions don’t always mean good information, particularly when it comes to advice about weight loss surgery. 
If Constant Worry Makes Life Difficult, It Could Be An Anxiety Disorder
We all feel anxious when taking a final exam or waiting on potentially bad news. Our body automatically responds when we feel scared or threatened, preparing us to fight or to run from danger. Occasional anxiety is a survival instinct that served our ancestors well. We may not have run-ins with charging mammoths these days, but this response still works. 
Protein Power
We hear a lot about protein these days, and protein can be found in all kinds of ways at the supermarket. Protein is a vital nutrient, but how important is it? 
Eating Organic on a Budget

Buying organic fruits and vegetables can cost more, but are they worth the extra cost? Boone Hospital Center WELLAWARE registered dietitian Jennifer Tveitnes helps you figure out how to enjoy the benefits of organic produce while minding your grocery budget.

Get Strong, Stay Strong
The words women and weightlifting may make you picture female professional bodybuilders posing in a competition. But muscles are made for more than flexing; you literally couldn’t get out of bed without them. Our muscles help us do so much that it’s easy to take them for granted.
Have Your Bread – And Eat It, Too!

Most people find themselves asking “Should I eat bread?” Boone Hospital WELLAWARE dietetics intern Sherry Mankofsky has the answer.

Healthy Eating: Am I Doing It Right?

healthy, balanced diet isn’t just good for weight loss; it can give you energy, keep your body in good working condition and enhance your workouts. You may have resolved to eat healthier this year but don’t know where to begin or what you really need to do to eat healthy. Boone Hospital WELLAWARE registered dietitians Jennifer Anderson (listed as JA), Kelsie Knerr (KK) and Jennifer Tveitnes (JT) answered our questions.
