Sara Asberry, UT Dallas’ registered dietitian, answers questions after a recent presentation on healthy eating.
Welcome to the UT Dallas community! My name is Sara Asberry, and I’m the registered dietitian for the Student Wellness Center on campus. I’m available to assist students and help them better understand nutrition and how it affects their body.
College is a major life transition. For many students, it’s the first opportunity they have to be completely autonomous in regards to choosing what to eat, and it can be difficult to understand what foods will best nourish their bodies. We each have different lifestyles, activity levels and genetic predispositions to consider, and the same nutritional plan doesn’t necessarily work for all.
As your student embarks on this new journey, I encourage them to embrace their health and respect their bodies. When we truly nourish ourselves, we are capable of great things. If you or your student have questions or would like to schedule a consultation, contact the Student Wellness Center or send me an email.
