Hi, I'm Kathy Wehrle, RD, a Community Outreach Dietitian with Parkview Health.
In all my years in the nutrition field, I've seen the gamut of how people eat and navigate their health behaviors. Some cruise along, reading the latest on nutrition - then do a great job of eating. But many others may not know where to go at all to find solid, reliable information. Lots of us lack the time and energy to devote to this topic or think it's not a priority.
That's where this blog comes in.
I'm hoping to give you bits of advice to help with some decision-making for the way you eat and care for yourself. My goal is to make your "food" life a little easier and healthier. I promise to help you decipher what's "in" and what's "out" in healthy eating and provide tips to help you create the optimum you!
As for me - it's been a busy life as a nutrition educator, wife and Mom to five kids. I know how easy it might be to let healthy eating slip to the bottom of the list. But both in my personal and professional life, I've witnessed the power and tremendous benefits that come from great eating - energy, vitality, wellness and much more. No matter where you are in your life situation, join me on the journey to a healthier you.
Together, let's keep getting our region moving in the right direction. You can help by sharing this blog with family, friends and neighbors. I want to be one of your health champions!
