March is National
Nutrition Month
, so for everyone who made a New Years resolution to eat
better but maybe hasn’t always stayed on track, ahem, myself, this is a great
time to focus on “getting your plate in shape” . The Academy of Nutrition and
Dietetics created this annual educational and informational campaign to stress the
importance of making healthy food choices and developing lifelong eating and
physical activity habits. A few tips on just how to get your plate in shape
include making half of your plate have fruits or vegetables, making at least half
your grains whole grains, switching to fat free or low-fat dairy products,
varying your protein, and cutting back on sodium and sugar rich processed

I think the most important piece of
advice is to slow down and enjoy your food. Eating smart doesn’t mean
chocolate, chips or pizza are never allowed, but it certainly doesn’t mean it
is okay to eat an entire box of Thin Mints in one sitting. You can see more
about March’s healthy eating initiative on the website as well as
healthy recipes, and books to help you on your way to becoming a National
Nutrition Month all-star!
