An MTSU alumna whose passion for healthy eating has taken her to new heights within her profession was the guest on a recent “MTSU On the Record” radio program.
You can listen to their conversation via the SoundCloud link below.
She represents a group of more than 112,000 members that touts itself as the world’s largest association of food and nutrition professionals.
Richard was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes in 2005. She said her minor in psychology helps her stay focused on everything she can do with her diet instead of concentrating only on what she cannot eat.
“It’s not what you should take out of your diet,” Richard said. “It’s all the things that you can put in and all the extras you can have and the abundance of more fruits and vegetables, bigger portions of certain things.”
Richard balances her responsibilities to the academy with her own nutrition counseling and consulting service, which includes yoga.
“It really helps you to practice grace, tolerance and acceptance,” Richard said of the discipline. “There’s not really a restrictive component to it.”
