Dispelling nutrition myths, ranting, and occasionally, raving

Follow Friday: @AndyThaRD

Leave a comment

For today’s Follow Friday I suggest that you follow fellow RD Andy DeSantis whose goofy antics on social media have fast earned him a number of devoted followers. He tweets at @AndyThaRD but where he really shines is on Instagram. He has his fair share of the obligatory food pics and selfies but he also started a challenge a little while ago asking people to post photos of themselves striking yoga poses with vegetables.

Andy's Vegan Yoga Challenge – You must post a picture of yourself doing a yoga pose that includes a vegan food in a humorous way. Tag me and I will re-post the one I that think is the funniest. FYI I am far from a legit yoga practitioner but that did not stop me from putting a bag of avocados in my mouth and whipping out a poorly executed pose that I learned from P90X. All skill levels welcome 😂😂😂 #yogachallenge #yogagram #yogisofinstagram #veganeats #plantbaseddiet #dietitian #rd2be #nutritionist #yogainspiration #trianglepose #vinyasa #eattherainbow #foodiegram #torontofoodie #yogapose #hippies #yogapants #meditate #spiritualgangster #instavegan #instayoga #vegansofinstagram #plantpower #fitfoodie #healthspo #eatcleantrainmean #onewithnature #ashtanga #forkyeah #instafoodie

It needed to be seen to be believed, right? ;)

Andy is serious about supporting new RDs and promoting a healthy lifestyle; he just knows that you can’t take anything (including yourself) too seriously in this business (life?). He recently began featuring blog posts from dietetic students on his blog. The most recent post features a recipe for vegan minestrone from Rachel Asbury, perfect for the cooler temps that are about to hit.

Another recent initiative of his is a YouTube channel “Dudes Talk Nutrition” in partnership with Aussie RD @hearty_nut (aka Joel Feren). Want to know if carrots cause cellulite? Watch their latest video to catch them combatting nutrition myths:
