Frenchhen, welcome back. What are your goals this week?
Ama, thanks for sharing that article from the Mayo Clinic on a healthy breakfast. (Mayo Clinic and Web MD websites are my "go-to's" for reliable info when surfing the Internet for nutrition advice.) Like you, I suspect that dietitian I saw last week may be a vegetarian. She kinda poo-pooed the meat protein on her plastic prop of what a healthy dinner should be, but she is also pro low protein for everyone, even those who have no signs of kidney damage or diabetes. That goes against all the medical advice I've heard for a person with no medical conditions requiring low protein. She goes for calories, carbs, and fiber rather than healthful fats and protein for helping stave off hunger pangs.
