Twitter: Best Healthy Recipes, Registered Dietitians, Nutritionists

by Leigh Ann Otte, managing editor

Last Friday, we highlighted some great health-related Twitter folks to follow.  Now, it’s time to celebrate registered dietitians and people who tweet healthy recipes.

What do you think of the list?  Any to add?

A couple of requirements we set:

  1. A real person must be behind the account (not only an RSS feed; they can be great; we just omitted them from this particular list).
  2. If the person gives nutrition advice, it must be solid and evidence-based (as far as we could tell).

Now for our recommendations:

@2ndhelping
Great weight-maintenance tips and recipes that aren’t boring or tasteless!

@Cooking_Light
From Cooking Light magazine. Yummy, creative recipes with easy ingredients.

@eatrightdenise
Recipe links and quick, healthy tips.

@HealthCastleGlo
Solid nutrition information–not fads or myths. (Gloria Tsang, R.D., the face behind this account, has written for us. There’s a reason. She knows her stuff.)

@hollyclegg
Easy recipes that are lower in calories. (She writes the trim&TERRIFIC cookbooks. We’ve featured some of her recipes in the magazine.)

@JanetHelm
Fun nutrition-story links.

@lizmarrmsrd
Links to lots of different nutrition articles on lots of different sites.

@lizweiss
Love her recipes–from the Meal Makeover Moms’ Kitchen. (We’ve featured one.)

@mothersrecipes
Watch out. These creative ideas will make you hungry.

And then of course, we’re on Twitter: @DrHubbard, @FamilyDoctorMag and our new account, @Health55Plus.
