Want tips on how to eat better, feel better, and live better? Ask our dietitian, Kate! She’s the brains behind Munchery’s nutritional information, and now we’re sharing her with the world through our new Ask the Dietitian series. Submit your diet and nutrition questions to Kate in the comments section below; or post your question via Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram – be sure to tag Munchery and include the hashtag #AskKate (so we get notified of your posting!). Each week, Kate will answer your questions in an effort to make healthy eating simple and accessible.
Kate Schlag, MPH, RD, is the official nutritionist at Munchery. Kate is a Registered Dietitian and holds a Masters degree in public health with a concentration in nutrition from UC Berkeley’s School of Public Health. She completed her dietetic internship at Oregon Health & Science University and went on to begin her career as an outpatient dietitian at UCSF.
Growing up in Boulder, Colorado shaped her preferences for healthy foods and fitness from an early age. As an athlete, she believes in fueling her body with healthy, wholesome foods to optimize her performance both on the field and off. Kate’s professional interests lie in global nutrition, the prevention of chronic disease through sustainable behavior and policy change, and sports nutrition. At Munchery, she works closely with our culinary team to design healthy and balanced meals using fresh, wholesome ingredients, and is a resource of information about general nutrition.
Our Dietitian is Your Dietitian
As much as we love designing and providing you healthy meals, we know that Munchery can’t be for dinner every night. The world is full of food, and understanding how that affects your body can involve a lot of work. That’s why we want to share our expertise with you, so that you can navigate nutrition no matter where you are getting your food.
Don’t know what to ask? Here are some sample questions:
- Should I eat before or after exercise?
- What’s the deal with the ketogenic diet?
- Is popcorn healthy?
- Am I allowed a cheat day?
Remember to tag Munchery on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram along with the #AskKate and, every Friday, Kate will respond in our Ask The Dietitian blog series. In addition to answering your questions, we will be addressing common nutritional misconceptions by running weekly polls. At the end of each week, we will reveal the results and Kate will give her take.
Here at Munchery, we want nutrition to feel effortless. We’re excited to answer your questions so that eating (and living) well can become second nature.
