We’ve got you covered. We’re nutribullet®’s team of registered dietitians, and we’re proud to offer solid, trustworthy information on nourishing your body. It’s our mission to cut through all the false information circulating around the topic of “healthy eating” and empower nutribullet® users with well-informed insights and practices that support everyday nutrition and wellness – whether it’s sharing research-backed information regarding beneficial foods and lifestyle habits or delicious recipes made in collaboration with our in-house chef. 

If you’re looking for a good jumping off point when it comes to embracing sustainable, healthy habits, you’ve come to the right place. Here are 3 easy tips that will help set the stage for success, no matter where you are in your wellness journey. 

  1. Embrace your individuality. When setting health goals, it’s important to honor your own sensibilities. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to wellness, and attuning your practices to your unique body, cultural background, lifestyle preferences, tastes, and health priorities will set you up for success much more than trying to fulfill someone else’s idea of “healthy”. Celebrate cultural cuisines, focus on variety (in all forms!), and trust yourself to determine what works best for you.
  2. Prep for success. One of the biggest roadblocks to eating well is planning. Set yourself up for success by setting aside a little bit of time each week to stock your fridge and pantry with necessities, and prep some ingredients for the days ahead.
  3. Eat with the environment in mind. Moving towards a plant-based diet is not only  beneficial to your health, it’s also kinder to the environment. And if you’re a meat lover, don’t stress! Simply cutting back your portion sizes of meat or replacing a few meat-based meals a week with vegetarian ones can make a big impact on the planet. 

With all the nutrition misinformation circulating on the web and beyond, how can you spot a qualified nutrition expert who you know has your best interests in mind? Look for the credentials RD or RDN, which stand for Registered Dietitian or Registered Dietitian Nutritionist. These individuals have met the Commission on Dietetic Registration’s (CDR) criteria. That is, they have completed a minimum of: 

  1. Required coursework in nutrition and dietetics through an ACEND (Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics)-accredited didactic program, or a graduate degree granted by a US-based, regionally accredited university or college, or foreign equivalent 
  2. Completion of supervised practice through a dietetic internship 
  3. Successful completion of the required registration examination for dietitians 
  4. Maintenance of registration by completing 75 hours of continuing education every 5 years

And if you have any food and nutrition questions you’ve been looking to ask, we’re here to help you! Submit us your questions at and we’ll write you back a personal response (really!).
