Not too easy. Not too difficult.
She is very knowledgeable in this subject and has a passion for it. Everyday I was captivated and interested in what we discussed. She shares personal experiences and gives advice on any concerns you may have related. Nutrition is a relatively new science so not everything is documented that Registered Dieticians may already know about. This class truly changed my life.
I learned about each nutrient. We discuss what is essential and non essential. We also discuss food labels. We learned what the difference in each country Is regarding nutrition. There is even a lecture on bread. If it's white, don't take a bite. It will probably stick with me for forever. We talked about nutrition on teeth and the body and the causes and effects. We talked about Pellagra and how no one believed the science when he said it was a Vitamin B deficiency. It wasn't until after he died that people believed it. Another eye opening fact was how cancer can be caused from the food we eat. The last topic was on pregnancy and children. We talked about what to do and what not to do. You even get to visit a garden if you want and learn about that. It was a great class!

Advice for students:
You should definitely show up to class. She gives the lectures on power point notes that you fill in during class. She tells you exactly what she is going to ask on the tests. You have an assignment and journal due the same day as every test and they are very interesting articles, podcasts, and blogs to read about.
