Guest Blog: Registered Dietician Samantha Finkelstein - 5 Reasons To Ditch The Diet Mentality (And What That Actually Means)
“I’m so bad for eating this”. “I’m not keeping this food in the house anymore — otherwise I’ll eat the whole box”. Comments like these have become so common place that it may be hard to believe they are problematic. But it turns out that this mindset around our eating may be leaving us in worse shape than we thought. Diet culture, defined as “a system that values weight, shape, and size over health and well-being”, tells us that if our eating and our bodies don’t look a certain way, we are unworthy and unhealthy.

If you haven’t heard of ReGrained or tried one of their fantastic granola bars yet, this blog is for you. ReGrained began when founders Dan & Jordan started brewing beer at UCLA. They soon discovered that the grains remaining after the brewing process were tasty and loaded with protein, fiber, and a ton of nutrients.
The logical next step was to turn these leftover grains into granola bars - and so ReGrained was born. They rescue the nutritious grain created every time beer is brewed and upcycle it into their tasty bars.
