Just a note explaining who I am and the thought behind the name of my blog. I am a registered dietitian and diabetes educator; specializing in weight management especially for those over the age of 40 like myself. I also love to cook and spend hours experimenting with recipes creating tasty dishes, for the most part, but with a healthy twist. I liked the name "New Direction" because it describes me. I spent the majority of my like as a lab rat, alias Medical Technologist, working in a hospital laboratory. I pretty much hated it after 5 years but it took another 15 years before I really decided what I wanted to be when I grew up. That is when I took a new direction for my life and went back to school for another degree. Voila a dietitian, which I truly love. My passion is diabetes and I feel that everyone should have access to diabetes education without insurance companies dictating the amount. Look for periodic pointers on weight management and diabetes and who knows when I have an especially tasty recipe rehab you may see that as well.
