What dietitians really order in a bar
There's this funny myth going around that dietitians are these magical #cleaneating creatures who only drink green tea, matcha, and green juice — green stuff, basically. While, yes, we may appreciate green drinks more than the average person, we also know the importance of balance and fun.
Moderate amounts of alcohol have been associated with health benefits, so it's not off-limits to dietitians either. But too much of a good thing is a real possibility, so it's important to keep it real with how much you drink. According to the dietary guidelines for Americans, moderation is defined as up to one alcoholic drink per day for women, and two per day for men.
In an attempt to show how health experts make room for moderate alcohol in their own lives, this is what registered dietitians said they order in a bar when it's time for a bit of an indulgence.
