Nutrition Tip:

Oatmeal Monday is the second Monday in February of each year.  During the 17th century, Scottish university students lived in very basic accommodations and existed on a rather meagre diet, largely consisting of oatmeal, which they would make into porridge.  No doubt, the porridge kept hunger at bay because of its whole grain and high fiber properties.  While the diet at Grebel in this century is considerably different, this week we celebrate a humble grain that can be transformed and added to many different recipes for us to enjoy.

Nutrition Tip:

March is Nutrition Month and this year the theme is “Take the Fight out of Food”.  The campaign guides you through a three step approach to improve your relationship with food, no matter what the struggle.

The 3 step approach involves:

1. Identify the Problem

2.  Get the facts using reliable and credible sources

3. Seek support with help from family, firends, a dietitian, and other members of the health team.

Nutrition Tip:  Food Fads:  How do I know which information to trust? (Adapted from the DC Nutrition Month Materials)

There is so much nutrition information online and it can be difficult to tell if something is a fad or if it is true.

Be critical and ask these questions to help you determine the credibility of information.

  • Is the website promising a quick fix or miracle cure?
  • Are the facts too good to be true?
  • Are they trying to sell me something?
  • Does the information come from personal opinions or scientific evidence?
  • Is there scientific review or verification by registered medical experts?
  • Are the writers qualified to be giving nutrition information?

Nutrition Tip:  Digestive Woes:  Eek!  What's Causing All This Gas?

It's a common story.  You're having lunch with friends, and you mention that you've been experiencing an embarrassing health problem - excess gas.  And with that remark, your friend goes into "problem solving mode" by recommending a gluten-free diet.  Is the recommendation the right one for you?

Doing some research from medical websites, you learn that gas and bloating may be caused by swallowed air, medicines, supplements and certain food or drinks.  You also learn that it could be a sign of a condition, such as lactose intolerance, irritable bowel or celiac disease. 

If you are tested for celiac disease, gluten needs to be a part of your diet to get accurate results, so gathering information and seeking the help of your doctor is important before making any serious changes to your diet.

Nutrition Tip:  Help! I Eat When I'm Stressed

Does a bowl of ice cream make you feel better after a really bad day?  Do you turn to carbs for comfort?  I's common to use food to make yourself feel better when you are sad, angry, stress or tired.   But there are better ways to deal with these emotions. 

Plug your problem into the three step approach to Take the Fight out of Food.

Here's an example of how it works.

Spot the problem: "David" works full time while raising a family and has a typical busy lifestyle.  He turns to food for comfort when he is stressed at work or frustrated at home.  He wants to learn better eating habits.

Get the facts:  David sees a dietitian and learns that craving food when he's stressed instead of hungry is called emotional eating.  He recognizes some of his own patterns in the information the dietitian shares with him, such as:

  • craving foods that are high in calories, fat and sugar
  • eating too much without realizing it
  • feeling even more stress and anxiety after eating too much

Seek Support:  David learns about mindful eating as a way to manage his emotional eating habits. The dietitian tells David that mindful eating involves paying attention to eating using all senses: seeing, tasting, hearing, smelling and feeling food.  So instead of eating a whole bag of chips when he's stressed, he can learn to be more mindful of his choice - perhaps eat a smaller portion and enjoy every bite, or choose a more nutritious snack.  Armed with apps like eaTracker, he can monitor when he eats and look for patterns.  Instead of turning to comfort food, he can learn to fight stress by doing something he enjoys, such as taking his dog for a walk playing street hockey with his kids, reading a book or cooking.
