November has been busy and December is coming! As we celebrate Thanksgiving this week and start to wrap up 2020, I am grateful for YOU!
This year has been different, but having the opportunity to connect with all of you Cancer Dietitian followers has been a joy. I have offered far more webinars this year than any year in Cancer Dietitian history, and having regular virtual cooking classes has kept my interns on their toes!
I have 2 more opportunities for you to join me before the year is over. I hope you see me there!

I hope you all have a safe Thanksgiving. As a reminder, here are my thoughts about overeating on holidays (spoiler alert: yes, you should overeat on special occasions!).
It will be different this year as we all work to keep ourselves, our loved ones and our communities safe.
For those of you who are frontline healthcare providers, I thank you for the care you are providing during this pandemic. May you stay well and know that you are supported!
For the rest of us, let’s do our part with the 3 W’s (as we say in NC!):
- Wear a mask when around people not in your household.
- Wait 6 feet apart and avoid close contact with people not in your household.
- Wash your hands regularly or use hand sanitizer!
I’m looking for your famous bone broth!!
