I Passed the DTR Exam!!!!

Posted by Jennifer (the student) on July 18, 2012

 

My long-term goal is to become a RD (registered dietitian). But I completed a DT program to see if I would really like the field of dietetics. I fell in love with all my classes and am looking forward to completing school. I have been postponing this test for almost a year because I have terrible test anxiety. Now I feel like I can really move on. Thank you for sharing in my joy! 🙂

What Is a Dietetic Technician, Registered?

DTRs work in settings such as hospitals and clinics, extended-care facilities, home health-care programs, schools, correctional facilities, restaurants, food companies, foodservice providers, public health agencies, government and community programs such as Meals on Wheels, health clubs, weight management clinics and wellness centers.

My 14th WIAW

Posted by Jennifer (the student) on July 17, 2012

Hi, everyone. Happy “What I Ate Wednesday.” These are my eats from last Monday. I was able to have one of my favorite lunches while I was out running a few errands. Hope you enjoy my day. Thank you to Jenn at Peas and Crayons for hosting the WIAW.

This is what I ate:

Breakfast (6:15am)

Started off with Instant Coffee from Trader Joe’s. I usually brew a pot of coffee every morning but this morning my husband was rushed. So I just boiled some water and it was fairly good. It was a treat because I did not have all the clean up from the coffee pot. To eat I had 2 slices of whole wheat bread with 2 poached eggs, topped with a little shredded cheese (Trader Joe’s Mexican Blend). Followed by my usually mix of vitamins.

AM Snack (9:00am)

An apple (maybe a Fiji?!?) and raw, unsalted cashews.

Lunch (11:45am)

Before I stopped at the market, I had lunch at the Veggie Grill. I cannot get enough of their Buffalo Wings (made with veggie chicken) and the Thai Chickin’ Salad. As you can see, we could not wait until I took a photo before we started on the wings. After marketing, I ran in Starbucks to get a Cool Lime Refresher. This is my new favorite treat, really refreshing during the summer.

PM Snack (2:30pm)

Half of a Gaya Melon (I think that is what it is called) from the Korean market. I really like these melons because they are small and sort of taste like honeydew meets a cantaloupe.

Dinner (5:300pm)

Last week, I reworked a recipe and came up with a new recipe “Chickpea and Seitan White Enchiladas” and I divided the recipe in half, so I could freeze half for later.  Monday night, we finished off the second half. They were just as good as the first time we had them.

Dessert (7:00pm)

And to complete the day Chocolate Angel Food Cake, to satisfy my sweet tooth.

July’s WIAW theme is “Food, Fun & Fitness” and here is a link to my exercise log for the week. Thank you for stopping by. I hope your day was full of healthy meals.
