Best of the Food Web: Nutrition Unplugged

By Elizabeth Jarrard, Dietetics Student, Sargent College

Every Wednesday this semester we will be posting about a new blog or cooking website that we love! The internet is filled with food websites, and our goal is to arm you with the “Best of the Food Web”!

nutrition unplugged

Nutrition Unplugged is written by Janet Helm RD who is on a mission to help you cut through the clutter of diet myths and focus on the fad-free facts about nutrition. Here at Sargent Choice we definitely agree with her food philosophy:

  • Nutrition is too often mired in myths, misinformation and misery.
  • Food should be enjoyed, not feared.
  • Some nutrition claims and evangelists should be viewed with a skeptical eye.
  • Nutrition is a science, not a point of view.
  • If something sounds too good to be true — it usually is.
  • No single food is the downfall of the American diet — or a savior.
  • Taste and health can happily co-exist.
  • It’s important to eat what you love and love what you eat.

Check out Nutrition Unplugged with for the resources you need to debunk nutrition myths, enjoy good food and improve your health!

I’m a huge fan of Nutrition Unplugged. It’s my go-to blog for the latest food and nutrition trends and for articles that dispel diet myths.
