25 Awesome Healthy Eating Sites for Nurses, Dietitians, and Regular People

A healthy diet can be part of any lifestyle, but is especially important if you’re recovering from illness or injury. While many people think of medicine or a visit to the doctor as the best way to get well soon, a nurse, nurse practitioner, or even a dietitian can recommend a change in diet that will make it easier to heal, and less likely that you’ll be ill or injured again. Whether or not you’re sick at the moment, it is never too soon to improve your eating habits, and it is never too late to make a resolution to cut the junk out and start treating your body right.
