Aside from our roles in patient care, employee wellness and community health at Mount Sinai, many of our dietitians participate in research studies and are always on top of the most recent nutrition news and information in order to provide the best care possible. Here we’ll share some of our nutrition tips and advice on a variety of relevant topics and comment on the latest research. Since our passion for nutrition often extends beyond the workplace, we are also sharing some favorite recipes developed and perfected in our own kitchens. We post new recipes and tips regularly, so make sure to check back often!
Fast food and takeout may seem like the most convenient food option when you’re on the go, but eaten too often, the excess calories, fat, sugar and sodium in these foods can add inches to your waistline and increase your risk of chronic conditions like type 2 diabetes and heart disease. Cooking your own meals is a great way to control what goes into your foods, limit portions sizes and caloric intake. Our registered dietitians have shared some of their favorite healthy recipes that are low in fat and sodium, but not in flavor.
