One of the first college-level courses on vegetarian nutrition to be given online will begin a new session on 21 August. The course is taught by Brie Turner-McGrievy, M.S., R.D., a staff dietitian with the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) and an adjunct faculty member of the University of Alabama. Ms. Turner-McGrievy was recently featured in People magazine for her work with PCRM. “Vegetarian Nutrition” is geared toward nutrition and medical students and health professionals, but will appeal to anyone with an interest in health and nutrition issues. Although it is sponsored by the University of Alabama, it is open to interested parties anywhere in the world via the Internet.
Here are the details: What: College-level online nutrition course taught through the College of Human Environmental Sciences at the University of Alabama I’ve found the same thing about certain foods, especially sugars. After I read your posting, I was looking for a nutrition newsgroup, but I couldn’t seem to find one listed. Does anyone know of a newsgroup or a home page that addresses nutrition, particularly one with healthy menus? I’ve found a lot of recipes on the net for healthy foods but not very many complete menus.
I downloaded an evaluation copy of a software program called NutriGenie DMP (diabetes meal planner.) I don’t have diabetes, but in the interest of limiting sugar and practicing good nutrition habits, I wanted to try it. It has a lot of promise, but I wish I could integrate it with my recipe program. If anyone’s tried any of these, and if any of the programs have been of help for better nutrition in order to help control depression, would you please share your experiences? Perhaps we could even start another newsgroup in case there are those in this group that doubt the effects of nutrition on depression.
