The First New England Christmas, and Dieticians Re-Imagine Dieting

Dec 21, 2020

If you’ve ever been to a dietician to lose weight, or just to get healthier, you’ve probably heard the same advice and been told to eat the same kind of food. But American dietitians often leave out room to eat diverse cuisines and food groups, largely leaving out a lot ethnic food. 

This hour, we learn how some dietitians are trying to change that. Coming up we talk to Jessica Wilson, a dietician and co host of the podcast, My Black Body. And we hear from a Connecticut dietician working to help individuals with eating disorders find peace with food and their bodies.

 

But first, the holidays are just around the corner. Did you know that Connecticut was the first state in New England to make Christmas a statewide holiday? We learn about the “The Spirit of Christmas Past in New England.” 

We want to hear from you.
