Hey! My name is Laura Henson. My journey to becoming a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) started in the field of nursing, but I finally found my place in dietetics. I graduated with a major in Dietetics and minor in Psychology from Marshall University. Then I completed my dietetic internship and obtained a graduate certificate from Iowa State University. I currently work at a psychiatric hospital and love integrating nutrition with mental health.
This blog began because I have become increasingly aware of the importance of not only nourishing our bodies with good food, but also nourishing our minds with truth and mindfulness. We are more than what we eat, how we look, what we do for exercise, etc. In this blog, you will not read about diets, how to get your “bikini body,” or what foods you should/should not eat. I believe WHY we eat is just as important as WHAT we eat. A healthy lifestyle incorporates your mind, body, and spirit. This is why I am a huge supporter of Intuitive Eating. My goal is to help others find peace with food and themselves.
