National Nutrition Month continues and today also happens to be National Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) Day! Yipee! Gotta love a holiday promoting my favorite profession :)
To celebrate NNM, and in lieu of this months' individual athlete spotlight, I decided to highlight a few dietitians from around the region who are athletes and/or sports RD's (with the inclusion of a few RD's "2 Be" also :) These are some lovely ladies who are putting their knowledge to the test in utilizing nutrition to maximize their own athletic outcomes. Furthermore, they are sharing their passion with others to spread the message that nutrition IS a BIG deal! Thank you ladies for promoting the dietetics profession in your own unique ways, displaying maximum girl power in your personal pursuit of excellence and serving as a role model by "practicing what you preach."
The question I asked everyone was:
How has being a RDN changed your perspective towards being an athlete or benefited your athletic endeavors?
Enjoy their responses below and be sure to check out their personal blogs/websites too!
P.S. Jennifer's motto is "Be Brave, Do things that scare you but make you happy," which I absolutely LOVE!

Happy National RDN Day!!
