Leadership Examined

“To lead people, walk beside them … As for the best leaders, the people do not notice their existence. The next best, the people honor and praise. The next, the people fear; and the next, the people hate … When the best leader’s work is done the people say, ‘We did it ourselves!'”

— Lao-tsu

Bust the Myths

March is Nutrition Month.   As a Registered Dietitian by profession, I thought it would be fun to share some nutrition resources with you throughout the month.

Nutrition is a key component of healthy living.  The intake of each person is swayed by family, friends, media and information on the internet — and myths abound.  How do you know the myth from the truth?

I will be sharing a variety of Myth-busting handouts, each with a yummy recipe, throughout the month in my blog and in my ezine.  Sign up for my ezine  (part of the leadership kit above) today to receive the full set!

This first issue includes two handouts.

One first handout explains why choosing a  Dietitian is a smart choice.

The second handout features a variety of common nutrition myths and the truths behind them!
