Working as an oncology dietitian is incredibly rewarding. I meet amazing people on a daily basis and get to talk about managing symptoms from treatment, ways to maximize intake when they might not be feeling well, and how to navigate nutrition with everything else. I also get to work with survivors that have been cancer free for years and are looking for ways to maximize their health. It’s challenging and rewarding, and every day is something new and different.
A few weeks ago as part of a week of Survivorship celebrations, I gave a webinar on Plant-Based diets. Plant-based eating is one of the biggest recommendations for promoting health, but it’s not always clear what it means to eat plant-based. Here’s the recording of my presentation where I dive into, what plant-based diets are, why they’re beneficial, and most importantly, how to get started.
