Featured Expert Blog

Welcome to the Feeding Fitness blog!

Welcome to the Walgreens Feeding Fitness blog! My name is Rachel Meltzer Warren, and I’m so happy to be your co-host.

The kind people at Walgreens chose me to host this blog because in addition to being a writer, I’m also a registered dietitian (RD). This means that I’ve completed a long list of academic and professional requirements that make me eligible for credentialing through the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. But I’ll tell you why I’m really here—I love food. I love talking about, shopping for, cooking, and of course eating it. I’m also mesmerized by the role food plays in achieving good health, which is something else I’m passionate about. And I managed to find a profession that lets me combine my interests and engage in my favorite activities—and call it “work.”

In addition to being an RD, I have a master’s in nutrition from Tufts University. These days, I keep busy with a lot of different jobs. As a journalist, I write about nutrition for magazines, websites, and now this blog. As an educator, I work with kids in a variety of different communities to help them develop a taste for healthy food from the start. And as a counselor, I meet one-on-one and in small groups with men and women of all ages to help them navigate the nutritional challenges that our fast-food world is filled with.

The goal for this blog is to bring the latest in nutrition news and research (sometimes complicated, sometimes contradictory) “to the table” for my readers. That means bottom-line information, practical tips, delicious recipes, and more. You can rely on myself and all the bloggers at Walgreens.com for reliable, science-based, real-world approved health advice. As well, I want to be sure you’re getting the information you need—so please, comment, write in, and tell me what you’d like to see on these pages.

It’s going to be an exciting year for me. In addition to blogging here I’m also writing my first book, which will be published in 2013 by Sourcebooks (it’s a guide for teenagers who are contemplating going vegetarian). And I’ve got a couple other surprises on the way. I can’t wait to share my adventures in nutrition and healthy eating with you.


PS: My healthy food plan for today is to load up on the last of the summer produce—peaches, corn, eggplant—at my local farmer’s market. Fall will be here before you know it! What are you doing to eat right?
