Sargent Choice Teams Up With The School of Management

By: Stephanie Horton, Dietetic Intern at the Nutrition & Fitness Center

One of the Sargent Choice Dietitians, Sarah Butler, MS, RD, LDN paid a visit to Boston University’s School of Management (SMG) last week to lead a discussion on healthy weight loss strategies.  During the lecture, Sarah discussed some popular Sargent Choice nutrition principles including healthy snacking, calorie balance, and metabolism.

Healthy snacking is an incredibly important part of a successful weight loss plan. Healthy snacks should incorporate whole grains, fruits and vegetables, and lean protein.  For example, 100% whole grain crackers with low-fat cheese and a piece of fruit is a perfect mid-afternoon nutritious snack.  It was a great experience to meet some new Boston University colleagues and to share some tips on healthy eating and weight loss. Overall, the meeting was a success!

After the discussion, we were happy to share a few healthy snack recipes including one of our favorite ingredients: oatmeal! We also had the pleasure of meeting some of the SMG staff including Renee Hirschberg, author of Eat Live Blog, and Lara Zelman, author of Good Cook Doris. Check out both of their blogs for some great recipes and ideas, including our Sargent Choice oatmeal recipes!

We always enjoy meeting new people and hope to continue to broaden our relationships with the Boston University community. We invite you to ask questions and share your suggestions with us so that we can continue to provide healthy options with great quality and flavor.
