Healthy Habits: What a dietitian eats for breakfast

Taking care of your health is a priority and nobody knows that more than physicians and healthcare providers. It can sometimes be difficult to find ways to stay healthy, so we’ve asked members of our Baylor College of Medicine community to share what they do in their daily lives to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Roberta Anding, a registered dietitian with Baylor College of Medicine and Texas Children’s Hospital, gives us the inside scoop on her healthy behaviors.
