Blue Cross Dietitian to Share Healthy Eating Tips

BATON ROUGE – From Blue Cross Blue Shielf of Louisiana:

With restaurants closed to diners and grocery trips limited, many of us are having to get creative at preparing food from what we have stocked in our kitchens. To share ideas for how you can still follow a healthy snacking plan while staying at home, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana will broadcast a live event from its Facebook page at noon on Thursday, April 2.

Registered Dietitian Laura Vidrine, who is part of Blue Cross’ in-house clinical team of health coaches, will host Romaine Calm and Carrot On: Healthy Eating Choices. In this broadcast, Vidrine will share ideas for selecting snacks to help your mind, body and spirit while at home because of the coronavirus.

WHAT: Romaine Calm and Carrot On: Healthy Eating Choices (a Facebook Live event)

WHO: Hosted by Blue Cross Registered Dietitian Laura Vidrine

WHEN: Thursday, April 2 at noon

Blue Cross also shares healthy eating tips through the Healthy Eating playlist, part of the Blue Cross YouTube channel. In this playlist of short videos, Vidrine and fellow Blue Cross Registered Dietitian Katherine Langlois share tips for making nutrition a key component of good health. This is particularly important for people who have conditions like diabetes or high blood pressure, which can be greatly affected by what they eat. The playlist videos address nutrition topics that members frequently ask the dietitians about.
