Nutrition Guidance For A Higher Quality Of Life

Did you know that Shield Healthcare has an entire section of their online community dedicated to nutrition? This resource has been very informative for me when I’m searching for answers, guidance, or maybe just tips for new ways to prepare foods I already enjoy.

I am always looking to improve my health as I age with a spinal cord injury, especially with one of the quickest and easiest ways I can control… The quality and quantity of food I eat.

I will often reference the latest articles from Shield’s professional contributors and pass them along to my wife, Katie, who commands the kitchen in our household.

In addition to articles about nutrition & health I’ve personally written, I’ve also curated a list of Top 25 Shield HealthCare articles on nutrition that I find relevant to those of us that live with and manage a body with a spinal cord injury. You can find both lists below.

I hope you find these articles as useful as I have.
