The Best Way To Eat Around A Nutrition Major Is To Eat Whatever You Want

Eat whatever you want.

A lot of friends have made comments about being uncomfortable to eat in front of me knowing I am a nutrition major. At first, I was really taken back but then I realized what the real issue is here.

I think more people need to understand that your comments about other people's lives and choices aren't appreciated when they aren't asked for. Too many people put their two cents in on topics that they shouldn't. Food choices and diets can be a very sensitive topic for people and comments from friends that may happen to be nutrition majors doesn't make that any better.

Now I don't want it to seem like I am not passionate about helping my friends or family achieve their nutrition goals. But only if they ask for it. I don't want to generalize everyone in my major but there is a stigma around nutrition majors that they force information down your throat about your food choices. Which I understand because other people in my major have done that to me. I understand how uncomfortable that is. But I also understand that they have good intentions, they're just going about it wrong since you didn't ask for their opinion before they gave it to you.

I want you to know that I am not the perfect nutrition major. I don't have a food Instagram devoted to my vegan dinners and workout routines. I don't always cook and bake things from scratch. And I definitely eat way too many Oreos. And there's nothing wrong with that. I like to think I'm realistic (sometimes even a little lazy) but I'm in college and I understand that there is a struggle to eat healthier. I'm completely in love with my major and everything it stands for. But I'm not going to shame you into eating better. So yeah, order that second dessert while we're out to dinner. Just remember to ask for an extra spoon for me.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?

14736

If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
