Loyola University New Orleans, Dining ServicesFrom Cornith, Mississippi, Kelsey Rosenbaum comes to the Loyola Dining Services team with a bachelor’s degree in Nutrition (B.S.) from Mississippi State University and also a master’s degree in Nutrition with a concentration in Public Health (M.S.) from the University of Tennessee Knoxville.  Her past experiences include working on the Special Supplement Program for Women, Infant, and Children – commonly known as WIC, Ochsner’s Corporate Wellness program, and interning with Molly Kimball though Ochsner’s Eat Fit NOLA.

Pursuing a career as a Registered Dietitian was an obvious choice, because of her love for the kitchen and passion for helping others. “Food is something I’ve always loved and it effects every aspect of people’s lives, which made it a perfect field for me,” says Rosenbaum.

Grapes and Cheese to-go snack from the C-StoreKelsey’s goals are to empower the Loyola University community by educating
students that a healthy lifestyle can be both easy and enjoyable. Her top three tips for eating healthy while on campus are:

  1. Eat throughout the day by incorporating snacks at least twice a day. Pick foods that are high in protein and complex carbs, like grapes and cheese. Did you know that you can grab a pack on the go in the C-Store?
  2. Have a fruit and a vegetable at every meal and in snacks. According to the food guide pyramid, you should have at least 3-5 servings of vegetables and 2-4 servings of fruit a day. For more information please visit the Department of Health’s dietary guidelines, here.
  3. Lastly, she says, “enjoy what you eat, but all in moderation.” It’s ok to have a cookie, but be mindful of how many you are having.
