Pasta with Homemade Turkey Meatballs

Who doesn’t love a homemade pasta meal? THIRA Health’s team of dietitians has approved this healthy recipe, and elaborated on why substituting whole grain noodles or zucchini spiraled noodles and making your own homemade marina is such a great choice. Tomato sauce is not only delicious and versatile, it also contains lycopene which is the pigment in red fruits, including tomatoes, watermelon, and pink grapefruit.  Lycopene is plant-based antioxidant and studies have linked it to having decreased the risk of some cancers and contributing to heart health.  The mashed tomatoes in tomato sauce, as well as the presence of a fat (olive oil in this recipe), make it easier for the digestive system to absorb the lycopene. Whole grain noodles contain the entire grain kernel, meaning they contain a higher amount of dietary fiber versus white...

Women Helping Women: An Interview with Dr. Moore

Recently, THIRA's founder and Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Mehri Moore, was interviewed by Reflections Magazine for her work in mental health supporting women. Whether it’s because women are more willing than ever to talk about mental health or because incidents are rising due to cultural pressures, the number of women diagnosed with depression and anxiety is increasing across all age groups. Dr. Mehri Moore has dedicated her entire career to addressing the trend. Moore is a pioneer in the area for women’s mental health. In 1991, she founded the Moore Center for Eating Disorders, an intensive outpatient program in Bellevue  focused on supporting patients with eating disorders. It was the area's first.

Announcing THIRA Health’s 7-day Partial Hospitalization Program!

THIRA Introduces a 7-Day PHP Treatment Option THIRA Health is delighted to announce the expansion of our Partial Hospitalization Program to a full 7 days per week. This expansion builds on the strengths of our current 5-day, DBT-based Partial Hospitalization Program.  Like all of THIRA’s programs, the newly-expanded offering caters to women and girls aged 13 and above with anxiety and depression, and for whom intensive treatment is clinically appropriate.

Our 7-day PHP is ideal for those looking to maintain the support and...

National Eating Disorder Awareness Week

By Emily Fitch, RD and Allison Thompson, RD   It’s National Eating Disorder Awareness week. We’ve been struggling with what to write – there are already blog posts with Eating Disorder (ED) facts, statistics, mottos for recovery, and much more out there. We know that children are 242 times more likely to develop an eating disorder than type 2 diabetes, for example – yet we hear so much more about the importance of a ‘healthy weight’, and not so much about how to promote balanced and nourishing messaging about health and weight. We know that recovery isn’t just about weight restoration, eating disorders often coexist with diagnoses like anxiety and OCD, eating disorders aren’t just about food, and recovery isn’t a straight line. Eating disorders are complicated medical and...

The Magic of Eating Together

We celebrate most milestones in our days—and our lives—by eating. We must eat, but we also love to eat, and perhaps the single greatest virtue of our nature is the one which wants to share our abundance with others, so that they may have something which is essential for their own survival. The rituals of eating can be a beautiful, healthful extension of this generosity; they can also be sporadic, non-existent, or emotionally draining. This is because something mysterious happens to us when we feed together: so much so that the foods themselves gain comforting or repulsive connotations based upon how (and with whom) we gather to eat. With these implications in mind, the findings of Harvard’s Family Dinner Project gain new significance and offer nutritionists and parents...
