National Nutrition Month

March is National Nutrition Month, a time to celebrate and prioritize our health and well-being through mindful eating and nutritious choices. To kick off National Nutrition Month, here are some practical tips and strategies to help you make healthier choices and nourish your body this month and beyond:

Build a Balanced Plate

Aim to fill half your plate with fruits and vegetables, one-quarter with lean protein sources like chicken, fish, tofu, or beans, and one-quarter with whole grains such as brown rice, quinoa, or whole-wheat pasta. This balanced approach ensures you’re getting a variety of nutrients to fuel your body.

Stay Hydrated

Remember to drink plenty of water throughout the day to stay hydrated and maintain optimal bodily functions. Keep a reusable water bottle at your desk as a reminder to sip water regularly, especially if you’re spending long hours working indoors.

Mindful Eating

Practice mindful eating by paying attention to your body’s hunger and fullness cues, as well as the flavors and textures of your food. Avoid distractions like screens or multitasking during meals and take the time to savor each bite.

Snack Smart

Choose nutrient-rich snacks that provide sustained energy and keep hunger at bay between meals. Opt for options like fresh fruit, yogurt, nuts, whole-grain crackers with hummus, or veggie sticks with guacamole.

Get Moving

Remember that nutrition is just one piece of the wellness puzzle. Incorporate regular physical activity into your routine to support overall health and vitality. Whether it’s taking a brisk walk during your lunch break, attending a fitness class after work, or enjoying outdoor activities on the weekends, find activities that you enjoy and make movement a priority.
