Registered Dietitian Julie Hartley says it all, “Convenience is the enemy of health.” It really is only a perceived convenience, however, when we’re tempted to buy precooked, prepackaged meals. Filler ingredients that enhance taste and lengthen shelf life of the product can be dangerous to your health. That creates inconvenience as you deal with yucky symptoms. You can get around this when you buy fresh, raw ingredients for your own food prep adventure. Registered dietitians at the Willis-Knighton Diabetes & Nutrition Center offer comprehensive nutrition counseling, education and support. Ask your doctor for a referral today.
