Ahh…dietitians….they must cook nice, warm, home-cooked meals all the time. Comfort foods, crock-pot recipes, all that fun stuff. Well, some of us don’t want to slave over a hot stove after 8 hours of work. Some of us don’t want to spend more than 20 minutes preparing a meal. And then there’s this dietetic intern, who apparently doesn’t want to spend more than 20 seconds preparing a meal, as evidenced by her food choices below. Hey, we have busy lives, what I can I say?
The finale, the last installment in “What does a dietitian (or dietetic intern) eat?” Hopefully this series has answered your question. And if you are still puzzled, the answer is this: the same as what everyone else eats.
This was perhaps the toughest MyPyramid to make, because this dietetic intern seems to eat a healthy, 98% vegetarian diet, 98% of the time. Her only saving grace is that she has a certain weakness for chocolate, which I personally can respect. 🙂 Although it hasn’t been recorded, I’m pretty sure all of the main dishes she cooks have at least 1 of these food groups in them, which is fine by me because thanks to her, I’ve actually grown to like the taste of squash.
So here you go: the third, true and honest example of what a dietitian eats:
When dietitians (and dietetic interns) go out to eat, they must order wraps and side salads and water and all that “healthy” stuff. Well, sometimes we do. And other times we get greasy, amazing, bacon cheeseburgers with a side of fries and split a dessert. Pretty much the same as anyone else.
Here’s the 2nd “MyPyramid” example for you to ponder over. And yes, this represents the typical diet of a dietetic intern (she knows who she is):
Edit: I realize I made a mistake by skipping out on one of the other major food groups this dietetic intern frequents. So I will include the revised, more accurate version below:
