What a Dietitian Eats in a Day by Cari Culp, RD.

What’s the most important decision you will make today? It turns out, what you eat is pretty high on the list. What we eat or our nutrition habits are the biggest determinants of our health outcomes. I have many clients ask what they should eat so I thought it would be helpful to share a day of my meals.


Green smoothie

This is my typical weekday breakfast and I make enough for the whole family. It’s quick, portable and provides a balanced meal full of high quality nutrition. My go to recipe is 1 cup of frozen berries, 1 cup frozen spinach or kale, 1 small banana, a couple tablespoons of almond butter or hemp heartsĀ and unsweetened vanilla almond milk but, I often change it up and throw in any fruit or veggies I have on hand. I love to mix orange or apple with beets, ginger andĀ carrots and add pumpkin seeds for protein and healthy fat. On weekends I will typically change things up and make eggs or high protein pancakes made with almond flour or cashews and have fruit on the side.
