Here’s what keeps me up at night.

You know all of those commercials for weight loss regimens, diet pills, exercise programs.  Etcetera.

You know how at the end, they all tell you to “consult your doctor before making any significant dietary or lifestyle changes”?

The fine print.  Black box warning.  FDA-mandated disclaimer.

Well.  Someday.  Someone will stroll into my office and ask me whether they can join Weight Watchers or run a marathon or go on a soup diet.

Or my mother will call me and tell me about this itchy rash that she has on her neck and ask me whether or not, in my professional opinion, I think it’s cancer.  Or she could be thoroughly impatient and not even wait until I know anything about medicine to ask me this.  In fact, she could have asked me on Saturday.  Just a hypothesis.

(And for the record.  Cancer is not itchy.  That sounds to me like a mosquito bite.  Put some toothpaste on it and call it a day.  Yes.  Toothpaste.)


My point being that someday.  Someone is going to call me wanting answers.

Answers about nutrition and diet and exercise.  And, based on the medical training I am going to have had, which includes barely any nutrition and nothing about exercise.  I’m kind of afraid that I’m not going to be able to answer them.

And this is the source of the gray hairs that I’m currently sprouting.  Although those might be due to the fact that I’ll be one year older in approximately eleven days.  Hard to say.

So while I’m still an amateur at this whole medicine thing.  I plan on deferring to a real expert.

This week at Eat.Live.Be. we are “asking the expert” and so my friend Nicole, writer of the blog Prevention, RD who is, in fact, a registered dietitian, was sweet enough to share with us five tips on how we can be healthier.  Take it away:

Eat Well, Be Well: 5 Tips to a Healthier You
These 5 simple tricks will help improve your nutrition status, and quite possibly your waistline.
1. Snack on fruits or vegetables. Eating low-calorie, high-fiber snacks between meals can help curb hunger and increase your nutrition each day. Also, this allows for a bit more flexibility in choices at meal times. Remember, try to get in 5-9 fruits a vegetables a day!
2. Switch to whole grain. Most any carbohydrate favorite is available in a whole grain version — brown rice for white rice, whole wheat pasta for white pasta, and so on. Grains are a great way to meet your daily vitamin, mineral, and fiber needs without giving up the foods you love and crave.
3. Don’t drink your calories. While juice with breakfast, a soda at lunch, and a glass of wine with dinner are certainly pleasureable, they add little to no nutritional value while providing a shocking number of calories. Save caloric and alcoholic beverages for special occasions, in moderation, to trim loads of calories from your diet.
4. Dine-in. It doesn’t matter where you go to eat, chances are you will eat more calories (plus fat and sodium!) than if you were to dine-in. Or, offer to host a get-together in your home so that you can control the menu while still being social.
5. Don’t get bored, try new foods and recipes. Spend time at the grocery store checking out new products and make it a goal to try a new, healthy recipe on a regular basis. There are free, healthy recipes littered all over the internet. Planning weekly menus and meals can be a huge help, as well.
Thanks so much, Nicole!  Love you girl!
And be sure to check out the other Eat.Live.Be. bloggers for some more tips from the experts:


That being said, I am not a total dimwit when it comes to nutrition.  And so the one thing I plan to recommend to all of my future patients.  Is to eat sweet potatoes.

For they are the most nutritionally dense vegetable out there.  They are loaded with vitamin C, calcium, potassium, and vitamin A, are full of fiber, and are low on the glycemic index.

Thus, I am sharing with you today a meal that has been nutritionally optimized (especially for those of us in marathon training gear, who need our carbs as well as every possible vitamin imaginable in order to get our muscles to where we need them to be).  Sweet potatoes, arugula, leeks, whole wheat pasta.  And, of course, some feta cheese which has just enough fat to let us absorb all of the fat-soluble vitamins that sweet potatoes has to order, but not so much that our arteries will be clogged by it.  Hot damn.

Plus it tastes damn good.  In my most authoritative and professional opinion.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

    Ohhhh , i get that hint , ur birthday is round the corner 🙂
    I will be here , to hug u with love , wish u the v best , and cheer on….

  2. It really is pathetic how little nutrition training there is in med school!! You will be way ahead of the curve, girl! Sweet potatoes are one of my faves!!

  3. Ali says:

    Your pasta dish looks delicious. I’m happy I have all the ingredients in my refrigerator because I think I’ll be making this for dinner tomorrow night 🙂

  4. Danielle says:

    Just bookmarked this one – It sounds great.

  5. Yes, this looks to be just what the doctor ordered! Except for the arugula, all the ingredients are in my kitchen and asking to be organized into something delicious.

    Have a great day.


  6. I have never thought to add sweet potatoes to my salads. What an ingenious idea! Love it. Arugula is one of my favorite ingredients, i love the woody and peppery taste. Hope you have a fabulous Valentines Day

  7. I love sweet potatoes with anything but have never had them with pasta – this definitely looks like an awesome marathon training dish!

  8. This salad looks so delicious and infinitely better than most salads I would get eating out (unless I paid a ridiculous sum of money for it.. in which case it would HAVE to be better based on principle). Good luck with the marathon training! I sent you an email about wine.. did you get it?

  9. Dawn says:

    I think you will do fine when people ask you nutrition and fitness questions. I don’t think there is a magic bullet.
    I like Michael Pollan’s Eat Food. Not too Much. Mostly Plants.
    Love the sweet potatoe and feta combo.

  10. Amy says:

    I’ve never loved sweet potatoes more – thank you for not posting heart shaped brownies today. Just sayin’.

    Most doctors lack bed side manner, not answers to nutritional information. And if that’s the case, I have a feeling you’re going to be juuuust fine.

  11. janet says:

    If you added kale, it would be a nutritional powerhouse!! I love sweet potatoes, too! 🙂

  12. Pam says:

    Great adaptation!! Toothpaste? Really?

  13. Nina says:

    Joanne, what a great post! the tips are fantastic and your pasta looks so delicious! Happy Valentine’s Day!

  14. I bet you will get a lot of specific questions as a doctor. People always want me to tell them exactly what to eat for some reason, instead of general guidelines. It’s hard keeping up with all the fads and trends and crap out there!

  15. Oh many points today…

    First, Windex, not toothpaste

    next, Doctor, Doctor, it hurts when I do this… If you can’t fill in the punch line, your education is suffering.

    Next, “Don’t drink your calories”… While true, have you stopped drinking???

    Next, I would add to your AMAZING list of 5 truths, artificial have their own issues. Don’t use fake sugar, don’t drink diet soda. This is the one tip I stick to religiously, and I believe has had the biggest impact on my health.

    And finally, please don’t hate me when I totally rip off this meal for one of my meatless meals.


  16. Sofia says:

    so much nutritional information is so easily accessible these days, i’m sure you’ll be more than fine advising your patients. and most people naturally trust doctors, so unless you’ve got cynical patients like me, you’ll be fiiiine giving nutritional advice. or just hand out recipes – that seems wiser, in your case 🙂

  17. Eden says:

    ugh I know TOO much about “nutrition” because of my eating disorder! Th crazy thing is that people used to ask my for weight loss tips when I wan like super-duper-not-healthy-skinny! If someone asks me for diet tips, I tell them to use super glue as lip balm.

  18. Catherine says:

    Looks great Joanne…I love all the ingredients and the feta, well it gives the dish its “kick”. Healthy and satisfying at the same time. Blessings, Catherine

  19. Miriam says:

    I LOVE meals like this!! Happy Valentine’s Day, Miriam@Meatless Meals For Meat Eaters

  20. Faith says:

    Great tips from Nicole! And I love this dish, Joanne. The sweet potatoes are a great touch…I’m not sure if there’s truth to it, but I’ve heard that they are basically THE healthiest thing you can pick up in the produce department. I don’t know if it’s true though…wish I could remember where I heard that!

  21. I had no idea sweet potatoes were that good for you. Awesome. Thanks, Dr. Joanne. =)

  22. Jo,
    I roasted sweet potatoes for V day today too.
    I may try this recipe sans the whole wheat pasta (just don’t love it).
    Have a happY!

  23. Allison says:

    Great tips and I love this recipe. My kids have both taken to sweet potatoes and I have been thrilled but, had no idea they were so good for you. Thanks for that … makes me feel like I am feeding my kids even better.

  24. That Girl says:

    Can I share a funny coincidence? Yesterday my mom gave a lecture and spoke about being aware of your sugar intake. She was referring to processed foods, but her audience just couldn’t get the picture. One gentleman wa especially concerned with knowing how much sugar was in a sweet potato. I kept thinking, listen mister, if a sweet potato is your number one concern, you’re probably okay.

  25. Eliana says:

    I’m telling you right now – you’re going to be that person I’m reaching out to for answers. So get ready girl. haha In the meantime, you can ward off any questions with this pasta. It looks amazing.

  26. Mo Diva says:

    Excellent advice doctor!
    I love you, happy valentines day.
    Love the pasta! looks sensaysh

  27. Ada says:

    Haha I’m eating a sweet potato while reading this post. How meta.

    It is so crazy how little nutritional training there is in med school. There actually was recently an article about that in the NY Times. One doctor, who’s son happens to currently be in NYU med school, started nutritional classes at various med schools across the country and has tried to institute healthier hospital meals.

    That pasta, by the way, looks totally awesome. I am definitely of the belief that feta makes everything better in life:)

    Have a Happy V-Day!

  28. Beautiful photos, as always. My Eat Live Be post today also includes sweet potatoes. Definitely an important part of my healthy eating plan. (Also an occasional chocolate chip cookie.)
    Love the tips from Prevention RD. Simple and straightforward. Thanks!

  29. This looks INCREDIBLE! Thanks for sharing such a beautiful recipe 🙂
    PS. I gave you a blog award!

  30. Megan says:

    This dish looks delicious, and it’s great that all those vitamins and nutrients are packed in there. I couldn’t forego the feta, so I’m glad you gave a little shoutout about the fat helping with absorbing all the good stuff.

    Happy Valentine’s Day!

  31. Shanon says:

    This looks delicious. In fact, I would be willing to try whole wheat pasta again just for this recipe. With my love for feta and arugula and the sweet potatoes, I am sure I could handle a whole wheat pasta. We need our carbs too!

  32. Juliana says:

    Joanne, love the addition of sweet potato in the salad…not only add a sweet touch to the salad, add color as well 😉

  33. Swathi says:

    The salad sounds delicious, adding tooth paste on mosquito bite is new info. I will try next time.

  34. polwig says:

    I think you should send your future clients to this site 🙂 Happy Sweet Potato lovin’ Valentines Day !!!

  35. Pam says:

    It not only looks healthy and flavorful, it looks absolutely delicious too!

  36. You have an amazing collection of pasta dishes on your blog.I really hope to try quite a few of them some day..This pasta again looks yum.I have never seen or eaten sweet potatoes in pasta..I think they will taste great with feta.Quite innovative and I loved the last picture.

  37. La Liz says:

    Good, solid advice that’s doable. Over the last year, I’ve switched to whole-wheat pasta and sweet potatoes (over white potatoes), with no problem. I like the leek/arugula/feta combo which would be yummy tonight. And roasted sweet potatoes . . yum.

  38. teresa says:

    great tips! and they all seem so attainable!

    love this dish, a total power meal full of amazing flavor!

  39. Great advice, Dr. Joanne, and a delicious, healthy pasta dish. It sounds great!

  40. Great tips! I won’t mind eating well when it looks as delicious as that pasta!

  41. tigerfish says:

    Good tips! I try to follow those pointers too.

  42. elra says:

    oh, arugula and feta cheese, this just cheer my Monday up!

  43. This looks really tasty. I never thought about putting sweet potatoes in pasta. Sounds perfect.

  44. vanillasugar says:

    excellent tips! and stay away, far away from processed foods. the chemicals in those things are dangerous.

  45. I absolutely love leeks- and sweet potatoes- and feta cheese. Who am I kidding, this dish screams “make me!”

    Cheers to recipe making. Let’s never have good, healthy, nutritious food get boring. 🙂

  46. Martha (MM) says:

    Lovely recipe Joanne! It’s perfect for Valentine’s Day or any day! I like the tips you posted and agree with all (except I’m just going to pretend I didn’t see #3 – I love drinking my calories way too much (she said while grabbing a beer out of fridge 🙂
    Let me wish you a Happy Birthday a little early too since I’m such a sporadic blogger these days – hope it’s a fun one, and here’s to your best year ever – Cheers! (Now how would I have done that without a beer? 😉

  47. Raina says:

    I love this dish. It not only is very healthy it sounds really delish. I even think my kids would for this one.

    I think you will make a great doc someday, and you will give excellent advice:)

  48. daphne says:

    mmm.. sweet potato and feta! that can be a dip as well..

  49. Stella says:

    This looks delicious, Joanne. I’m so making it:) I am really. I have just about everything to it, so I must…!
    Oh, and Happy Valentine’s Day, Lady! I wish you lots of love and romance this year. This witch has a feeling about 2011 and a Jewish/Italian stallion in your path. Or something lovely like that…;)

  50. RamblingTart says:

    I never thought of adding sweet potatoes to pasta, Joanne. 🙂 But it sounds fabulous! I love all the tips Nicole shared. Very sensible and wise. 🙂

  51. Shannon says:

    so glad i cooked up a sweet tater last night! great-looking pasta dish, although i would’ve swung with goat cheese… 🙂

  52. Mary says:

    This is a gorgeous salad and your use of sweet potatoes takes it over the top. This sounds delicious. I hope you have a great evening. Blessings…Mary

  53. Claire says:

    Hate drinking my calories, almost ALWAYS eat in…my problem…getting bored with my foods. Thus…Eat.Live.Be!! 🙂

  54. OohLookBel says:

    Those 5 tips are words to live by (gold!). As is the tangle of arugula, pasta and feta – I want that for dinner tonight =D

  55. Reeni says:

    What an incredibly delicious pasta – love the sweet, salty and savory flavors! If anyone asks you could direct them right to your blog and your goldmine of healthy recipes!

  56. i am guilty of always wanting a sugary drink/something sweet after my meals T_T

  57. Julie says:

    gahhh it’s your birthday in 11 days!!! or maybe 10 now? yayyy 🙂

    thanks for the squito bite tips!

  58. This looks amazing. Love all the ingredients!

  59. Loooooove the sweet potatoes! Those are some great tips too- the one about eating in is particularly on my mind right now. I went out for a friend’s going away party this weekend and woke up the next morning with “sausage fingers” because of all of the salt in the food.

  60. Loooooove the sweet potatoes! Those are some great tips too- the one about eating in is particularly on my mind right now. I went out for a friend’s going away party this weekend and woke up the next morning with “sausage fingers” because of all of the salt in the food.

  61. theUngourmet says:

    I always love your use of sweet potatoes and kale and arugula…and squash. I think you rock with the healthy eats. I was just thinking today that I needed to put together a few more dishes like yours. This pasta looks fantastic!

  62. Claudie says:

    Happy Valentine’s Day to you too!

    Your pasta looks beautiful!

  63. Beautiful colors in your pasta dish! Healthy and delicious, I’m trying to keep these 2 words in mind as a resolution for the new year lol

  64. lovely pics,looks delicious

  65. Katerina says:

    I am Greek so feta is in my table at least twice per week. Beautiful pasta dish Joanne and the combination of veggies pasta and feta is irresistible.

  66. Nicole, RD says:

    Thanks, Joanne! I have always heard that med students get little to no nutrition education and that is crazy to me! Most every chronic disease can, at least in part, be traced back to a nutritional problem. You obviously care about nutrition and medicine and I admire that SO much! Plus, you’re a damn good cook/baker and nothing short of HILARIOUS and hence, I <3 you! And your blog! 🙂 P.S. Sweet potatoes do seriously rock!

  67. Marisa says:

    Those are some great (and sensible) tips! Hope you had a terrific Valentine’s day, gorging yourself on your beloved sweet potatoes. 😉

  68. Megan says:

    Great photography shots! This pasta looks awesome, sweet potato greatness! I am trying to figure out nutrition for our family…hopefully we will get it down soon! PS wanted to let you know I used your recipe for Green Jasmine Rice in my latest post. It was so so good! Thanks!

  69. Lori says:

    This is the kind of combo I would never dream of on my own. But now that I see it – wow! I would love this and I have a feeling it will make it on our menu soon!

  70. Tasha says:

    Mmmm…sweet potatoes, feta, pasta…I’m seriously sold right there. What a wonderful sounding dish!

  71. ASHLEA says:

    This seems almost impossible since I like to cook so much, but I just had my first successful run with sweet potatoes last week and now I am jazzed to try more recipes. This one looks great!

  72. Barbara says:

    Really, is there anything better than roasted sweet potatoes? OMG. So good.
    And in your list of eat well, be well, #4 is the stickler. Absolutely you’re tempted to eat more, but yet you want to be able to join your friends and nothing’s worse than a dieter in the group. You have to be twice as cheerful as everyone else so as not to be a damper on drinks and food. I know, ’cause I’m still on one. Going to be difficult when my son and his family come down next week.

  73. Great tips! #5 is my favorite, I’m all for trying new recipes!

    Camila F.

  74. Maria says:

    Love the combination of flavours in this dish, especially feta is one of my favourites!

  75. Joanne says:

    Your birthday in 11 days! Wahoo! Start celebrating! 🙂

    That pasta dish looks so good. The sweet potatoes got me and of course the feta was the ultimate trap. I’ve got to try that delicious combination. Great job!

  76. Joanne says:

    Love the five healthy tips, sometimes common sense is the best advice. And I also love the way you are OWNING your future, and seeing yourself where you want to eventually be … Kudos to you 🙂

  77. chrysta says:

    Wow!! absolutely gorgeous! I cannot wait to make this at home. It looks so delicious!!! Plus I love all the health info.

  78. Victoria says:

    I can attest to the fact that your mom did ask you if you thought she had skin cancer, haha. Your friend made some great tips about being healthy. I think you’re on the right track with this recipe, the whole wheat pasta and the sweet potatoes, yum!

  79. I never thought of sweet potatoes with my pasta. I am an idiot because this looks AMAZING!

  80. Corina says:

    This looks filling and healthy. I’ll have to try it before my next long run!

  81. Sarah says:

    What a unique salad! Must must try it! Going on my Excel “to cook” list 🙂

  82. Dana says:

    Some of my very favorite things are in there! I think one of the biggest things about eating healthy is just stopping to THINK about it. Should I waste 200 calories on a Coke, hmmm, no! Should I get the cream sauce or the marinara? Etc. People just get into a rut and make/order/eat/drink the same things over and over without thinking about healthier choices. Rant off. 🙂

  83. A terrific pasta, I like the sweet potatoes and feta combination!

  84. Kim says:

    You certainly took those 5 tips and made the most of them with this dish! This recipe is loaded up with whole grains and lots and lots of veggies. I’ve never done the whole pasta with potato thing before but I know it has to be a magical combination. Looks delicious Joanne.

  85. Heh, if someone asked you about a diet pill, you could simply tell ’em to wait for the next infomercial for a psychic and ask them! 🙂

    PS: Yum, pasta! 🙂

  86. Angela says:

    This looks so yummy! I love the idea of sweet potatoes and feta.

  87. Kevin says:

    That pasta is just packed with goodness!

  88. elly says:

    This looks delicious! I have a wee bit of an obsession with leeks…and, well, pretty much every other ingredient in this pasta.

  89. aipi says:

    Wow… looks so inviting and I have my fork ready to dig in…awesome combination of ingredients Joanne!!

    US Masala

  90. Jessica says:

    This sounds delicious! I love all the flavors!

  91. That's Ron says:

    oh my! ur photography skill r awesome…it makes me hungry

  92. Such a colorful and healthy dish–once again you are the queen of the sweet potato and I bow down to you! 😉

  93. I love feta, this dish sounds so good and yummy to me

  94. Johanna GGG says:

    I would take advice from you – especially if you tell me to eat this pasta – sounds delicious

  95. Another amazing dish to behold! Beautiful! I do think Americans eat out too much – it’s amazing how much fat and calories are poured into restaurant food….dabs of butter at the end…tons of salt too!

  96. Candace says:

    I should have made this Sweet Potato/Pasta dish instead of the one we had for dinner last night. This looks sooooo good. The one last night was an epic fail. I’m just going to start planning my meals around whatever you’re having. That’s the best gift that I can give myself and my family. 🙂

  97. Thanks for sharing tips on eating healthy. Love the addition of sweet potatoes in this pasta dish. Looks very appetizing!

  98. Cara says:

    People who drink calories and people who are unwilling to try new things are some of my least faves. Just sayin’ 🙂 (though maybe I’m a little jealous of those who can get away with drinking so many calories!)

  99. I love your professional opinion, that it tastes good. If you ask me, enjoying your food is a big key to being well nourished. Your recipe looks delish, thanks for sharing with the Hearth and Soul hop.

  100. sweetlife says:

    i adore swpotaoes, and in pasta..oh heaven man, heaven..great tips, thanks


  101. Sweet potatoes are quite a new ingredient to me… and it sounds like a great idea to add them to these delicious pasta -I could put arugula everywhere – so, you bet that they look super tempting to me!!

  102. Perfect mix of sweet, tangy, creamy, soft! Sweet potatoes should find their way in more people’s mouths.

  103. Believe me – you already know much more about nutrition that most doctors. They have their gov’t issued charts and lists and a food pyramid that is brought to you by the most aggressive of lobbyists.
    And I have stopped myself a couple of times from emailing you with medical questions!
    I love your super-pastas. A meal in a bowl and so delicious. ?

  104. Ruth Daniels says:

    Great post. I love the tips and, naturally love the pasta. I never appreciated sweet potatoes until I started South Beach Diet years ago. Thanks for sharing with Presto Pasta Night. Your dishes always makes the roundups special.

  105. Mmmm sweet, salty, and bitter. What a wonderful balance of flavors and healthful too. Thanks for this beautiful pasta, Joanne!

  106. Chris says:

    You never fail to make me smile, Joanne! Default medical advice from now on, put toothpaste on it. Check!

  107. I want to make this tonight and I just might be able to. Off to print it.

    Thanks for linking another of your great recipes at My Meatless Mondays.

    Get that nutrition right. I can’t tell you how many doctors know less than I. I don’t really think it is great when a doctor diagnoses celiac and then tells one to come back when he has info on what to eat.

  108. Cooking right now, Love this recipe! thank you so much 🙂

  109. just tasted the sweet potato. Really, you are my hero right now, thank you again for this recipe!

  110. Angela says:

    I included one of your recipes in my Ash Wednesday blogroll today. Thanks for the inspiring eats:)

  111. Hopie says:

    Just stopped by your blog thanks to Julie from A Little Bit of Everything. And my question is: I have a sore shoulder – do you think it’s cancer? And if so, what should I eat??? Ok, I’m kidding but I’ve been enjoying reading your thoughts and recipes 🙂

  112. You create the kind of pasta dishes I’m always looking for!!

  113. Ginger says:

    this was divine. next time I might add a touch more rosemary. we just used mixed leaf lettuce from the garden for the arugula.
