Go Further with Food

March is National Nutrition Month. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics developed this in 1973, with the first theme being “Invest in Yourself – Buy Nutrition.” Its primary focus is on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating & exercise habits. This year the theme is “Go Further with Food.” With the New Year’s resolutions and holidays behind us, this month is the perfect time to re-focus our health needs and kick-start our health goals. Eating right doesn’t have to be complicated! Start making simple changes to your daily diet & you will see some big results. Here are some simple tips to get started:

  • Eliminate processed foods

  • Minimize saturated & trans fats, sodium, and added sugar

  • Eat lean meats, poultry & fish

  • Consume a lot of vegetables in a rainbow of colors!

You want to eat what you love, but be smart! Always keep everything in moderation. Smart food choices will help guide you on the path to a healthier, longer life.
