How are your nutrition habits?
Have you evaluated your nutrition habits lately?
Good nutrition not only helps us maintain a healthy weight and prevent chronic disease, but can also help decrease your risk of common colds and improve your energy levels.
But what is good nutrition?
The internet is full of recommendations: low fat, low carb, no sugar, add juice, no juice, vegan, high protein, no grains… and the list goes on and on. In fact, I bet if we put all of these recommendations together, we’d only be left with vegetables! Well, at least we can agree on one thing!
The truth is that whole, unprocessed foods from a variety of food groups are always the best choice. In fact, every recommendation listed above can be healthy for the right person and right situation.
March is National Nutrition Month
Start improving your nutrition with small, deliberate changes: add a vegetable at every meal, grill or roast rather than frying food, choose low fat dairy instead of whole fat, or limit eating out to one time per week.
If you’re looking for reliable nutrition information to support your healthy changes, go to www.eatright.org. In honor of National Nutrition Month, they offer some great tips sheets (our fave is Rate Your Plate).
