We think of athletes as the healthiest people around, but unhealthy relationships with food and exercise are even more common among athletes than in the general population. Former competitive runner and Eating Disorder Dietitian Lizzie Briasco, MSc, RD, LD joins us to talk about why athletes of all ages are at risk for EDs, how to spot someone who might be suffering, and what attitude changes in athletic programs could help prevent disordered eating before it starts.
Food waste is bad in two big ways: it means throwing away perfectly good food in a world where many people don’t have enough to eat, AND it means basically ripping up your hard earned cash and throwing it in the garbage. This week, Registered Dietitian and Flavor Maven Hannah Jastram Aaberg gives us tips for making the most of the food we buy, from using every last bit of that bunch of herbs to a hilarious use for pickle juice. Never fear what’s hiding in your crisper again!
