Meg Green on Women's Nutrition and Wellness
We are so excited about our latest collaboration with Registered Dietitian and Integrative and Functional Nutrition Certified Practitioner, Meg Green RD.
Meg is a native Arkansan who has been a Registered Dietitian providing nutrition education for 14 years. She received her Bachelor of Science in Food, Nutrition, and Human Sciences from the University of Arkansas, completed her Dietetic Internship and obtained her Master of Science in Clinical Nutrition at the University of Memphis. Developing a passion for pediatric health and wellness, she spent 12 years at Arkansas Children’s Hospital and her love of culinary arts led to a welcoming transition to functional nutrition in 2019. Her passion that “food is medicine” is why she became Arkansas’s only Integrative and Functional Nutrition Certified Nutrition Practitioner in 2020. Opening a private practice focused on women to help regain energy, provide unshakable clarity, and rebalance hormones while addressing root causes is her mission.
We were eager to learn more. Please read our Q&A with Meg below to learn more about her family, private practice, and tips on how to improve our overall nutrition.
1. Tell us a little bit about yourself and your family.
My name is Meg Green, and I am a Registered Dietitian that specializes in Pediatrics for 10 years and now the only Integrative and Functional Nutrition Certified Practitioner in Arkansas. I am happily married to my husband, Clay, for 11.5 years. We have two spunky kiddos, my daughter McCoy (6 yo) and my son Coltrane (2 yo). We have lived in Little Rock for 14 years, and love it. 2. Why did you start Meg Green RD?
I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's disease and was not able to find support for my symptoms. I worked with a nurse practitioner, Lindsey Gillum at Revive, who shared functional medicine with me. I started a journey to get to the root cause, and have no aches, pains all while gaining mental clarity, hormone balance and finally lost weight. My friends kept saying they wanted me to help them so I decided there were others like me, and I wanted to help as many as I could. 3. How does Meg Green RD work?
I work with women only who struggle with thyroid disease, hormone imbalances, gut issues, and want to use wellness lifestyle changes to heal.

I worked with Kids my entire career, and then my husband was diagnosed with a heart condition. We traveled to many heart hospitals and I wanted to make the switch to adults. After my own health issues, my passion became clear-to help other women just like me who were sick and tired of feeling sick and tired. 5. What are you most excited about your new private practice?
Hands down helping another woman regain her life. So many times we are told it’s age or hormones, and even just in our head. That’s not the case, and there is help! 6. If you could pick 3 things we should all be doing to improve our overall nutrition?
Sleeping 8 hours a night in the dark and unplugged, staying hydrated with water during the day, and using nature as your food source and energy source (exercising and breathing fresh air.) 7. What is one of your favorite things right now? It can be anything that makes you happy.
The pandemic has allowed so much home time, and being able to cook with kids at home fills me with so much joy. It’s a great creative outlet for me.
