The main force behind Rediscover Nutrition is a deep desire to help individuals cultivate a lasting positive relationship with food and their bodies. Research shows us over and over again that diets don’t work, and weight doesn’t tell us everything we need to know about someone’s health. That’s why Samantha Finkelstein, RD—founder of Rediscover Nutrition—is committed to guiding clients to a weight-neutral, all foods fit approach to eating. If you’re ready to start loving yourself, and stop fighting your food, book an appointment today.
“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.

We’re so excited to feature this week’s local maker, ReGrained. Keep reading to learn their story, their products, and why it’s so delicious to eat beer!
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.
