Meet Mary Ellen Phipps
This week on the podcast, we talked to Mary Ellen Phipps of Milk and Honey Nutrition. She’s a registered dietitian nutritionist, a mom, and as someone who was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at age 5, she has a very unique perspective on food and wellness. We’re so excited to hear more of her story—especially because her approach to food is often completely entertaining!
How to Keep Food Messages in Check as a Nutritionist
We talked through the challenges involved in filtering nutrition messages, raising kids to approach food from an intuitive mindset, the challenge of having a family member dealing with celiac disease, how she approaches sugar given her diabetes, her Sugar Hiatus on Instagram, and much more.
I went through Mary Ellen’s site and found three recipes that I think you guys will love!
