National Nutrition Month


National Nutrition Month

This is a great month to begin finding fresh fruits, veggies and other foods at a local grocery store. Even better, visit a farmers’ market if the weather permits in the area. Don’t be afraid to ask your local farmer's market to share ideas for ways that certain foods should be prepared, or look up some recipe ideas online. One simple but super healthy substitute that doesn’t require much effort is trading out the empty calories of white rice, white bread and plain pasta for whole-grain versions. Brown rice and whole wheat or oat bread don’t spike the blood sugar as much and take longer for the digestive system to break down. A great way to sneak a serving of vegetables into a meal is by serving healthy spaghetti squash instead of pasta that is filled with empty calories. To make eating healthily more interesting, consider learning some fun food facts that will keep things interesting and aid anyone in eating in a more nutritional manner:

  • Banana plants are members of the herb family.

  • Strawberries contain more vitamin C than oranges.

  • Coffee beans are the seeds of the fruit of the coffee plant.

  • One can of soda contains around 10 teaspoons of sugar.

  • A hardboiled egg will spin but a soft-boiled one won’t.

  • A medium-sized potato is a similar size to a computer mouse.

  • Only wash grapes just before you eat them as they keep better unwashed

Enjoy National Nutrition Month every March, eat well and live healthy, and then carry on for the rest of the year!
