Happy National Nutrition Month!

It’s that time of year again! National Nutrition Month is a great time to re-evaluate your eating habits and think about how you can ‘Eat Right, Your Way, Every Day.’ Every year the theme is a little different and I really like this one in particular. It emphasizes that there is no one perfect diet; we all have different food traditions, preferences and cultural influences which shape what ends up on our plates.

We all need to be consuming lots of vegetables, and fruits, whole grains, low and non-fat dairy, and varied proteins. We all need to cut back on high sodium and processed foods and be physically active on a regular basis, but this can mean something very different to each of us! Whether you like stir-fried vegetables and tofu after your Zumba class, or lentil stew along with your daily walk, you too can Eat Right, Your Way, Every Day!
