This week I’m telling you all that you should follow Michelle Allison (aka @fatnutritionist). That is, if you don’t already.

Michelle is a dietitian in Toronto who is a strong advocate for loving your body, no matter its size, and for being friends with food. She has the best twitter rants. I also really admire that she’s been using her platform on twitter to advocate for resistance in the US.

You can also find Michelle at thefatnutritionist.com.

Do you know a dietitian who I should feature in a future Follow Friday post? Let me know in the comments, via twitter, or email.

Nominated by last week’s Follow Friday, Deanna Segrave-Daly, this week’s RD to follow is Emily Kyle. Emily is a Holistic Registered Dietitian Nutritionist. Don’t let the “holistic” fool you, she’s an RDN with a Master’s in science. Emily’s all about helping her clients get “healthy and happy without ever having to diet again”. A sentiment I wholeheartedly agree with.

You can follow Emily on Twitter at @EmKyleNutrition where she shares loads of drool-worthy nutritious recipes. You can also find her at Emily Kyle Nutrition where she blogs about popular nutrition topics, shares recipes, and can be reached if you wish to work with her. You can also find her on Facebook at (you guessed it) EmilyKyleNutrition.

Do you know an RD you think should be featured in a Follow Friday post? Let me know in the comments below or via twitter or email.

This week’s RD to follow is Deanna Segrave-Daly, nominated by last week’s Mary Brighton. Deanna’s a dietitian in Philadelphia who loves bread, cheese, and Prosecco. In addition to cofounding Blog Brulee (an annual dietitian blogger conference) and Recipe Redux (a challenge whereby participating RDs give recipes makeovers to improve their nutritional profile while keeping them flavourful) she also blogs at Teaspoon of Spice with fellow dietitian Serena Ball.

When I asked Deanna what she’d like me to share with you, she asked that I tell you about their Healthy Kitchen Hack series. In this series, they feature tips to help you “save time, be more confident with your cooking and make your meals more nutritious and delicious”. They share these tips regularly on their blog and you can also sign-up for extra kitchen hacks via email. A few topics they’ve covered in the past include the easiest way to remove seeds from a pomegranate, how to make homemade protein powder, and how to stop parchment paper from curling-up.

You can follow Deanna on twitter at @tspbasil for lots of great recipes and cooking tips.

If you know a dietitian who I should feature on the blog, please send me a nomination!

The best part of this Follow Friday RD feature is that I get to meet amazing dietitians who I might otherwise never have known.

This week, I’d like to introduce you to Mary Brighton (thanks to Michele from last week). Mary’s a dietitian from the US who’s now based in France. She has FOUR kids which I think gives her expertise in child and adolescent nutrition some serious street cred. She’s actually in the process of writing a guidebook on feeding teens that combines her dietetic knowledge and experience in France. For a taste of what this book might bring, you should check-out her post on Eight Food Rules for Feeding Hungry Teens. It’s full of great practical advice on how to navigate the rapidly changing teen appetite.

For more nutrition information, recipes, and wellness tips from Mary, check out her website: Brighton Your Health. If you’re a facebooker, go like her page.

If you know a dietitian who I should feature in a future Follow Friday post please send me their info!

Michele Redmond is a chef and dietitian in Arizona who’s passion is helping people live well through enjoyment of food. She refers to herself as a “food enjoyment eating activist”  (love it!) and says that she has no patience for promoting restrictive eating as a solution to obesity – AMEN to that! She wants to help people create their own healthy eating environments where “food is a solution, not a problem”.

When I asked Michele if there was anything in particular she’d like me to share about her, she said that she’s planning to launch her own blog next month where she’ll be ranting about “our crazy food/eating culture” so stay tuned for that. In the meantime, you can find Michele on twitter at @Taste_Workshop or on her website The Taste Workshop. Her website has information about current and past events on great topics like knife skills and cooking with fermented dairy.

When Monika (last week’s Follow Friday) suggested Michele for a Follow Friday post she told me that Michele has helped her with recipe development and that she’s “big on helping people feel confident about appreciating how our sense of taste works”. Thanks for introducing us Monika!
