March is National Nutrition Month and our goal is to arm you with as much information as possible so you will know your stuff in the grocery store, in the kitchen and at the restaurant!
Everyday Eating For A Healthier You
If you’re trying to be a healthier person in 2013, the first thing you need to do is balance your calories with physical activity. And that doesn’t mean if you run on the treadmill you can have donuts for lunch, you’ll still need to eat healthy. Try to eat more whole grains, vegetables, fruits and seafood. These groups will help you feel full without turning to less healthy options. Did you know that Americans attribute more than one-third of their calories to solid fats and added sugars? Try to reduce your intake of solid and trans fat and replace them with monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. Liquid vegetable oils like canola, peanut, olive, and snack foods like olives, avocados, nuts and seeds are loaded with good fats. Snack away!
