National Nutrition Month is finally here and this year theme is Savor the Flavor of Eating Right!  The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics theme encourages everyone to take time to enjoy food traditions and appreciate the pleasures, great flavors and social experiences food can add to our lives.   #NationalNutritionMonth

 

So how can we Savor the Flavor of Eating Right?  The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics explains below:  


1. How, when, why and where we eat are just as important as what we eat. Making sure to enjoy the sight, sounds, memories and interactions associated with eating are essential to developing an overall healthy eating plan.


2. Develop a mindful eating pattern that includes nutritious and flavorful foods, while also taking the time to enjoy everything that a healthful and tasty meal brings with it. That's the best way to savor the flavor of eating right!


3. It is possible to enjoy the taste and flavor of food while still maintaining a healthy diet...

Since the winter  is here do you think eating locally needs to stop during this time of year? Definitely not so! Cold weather crops, the use of hoop houses and other methods to extend the natural growing season, and old storage bins for vegetables like cabbages and potatoes all mean that there are plenty of winter fruits and vegetables to choose from in most of the country. Look for the winter fruits and vegetables at farmers markets and in produce departments for the best flavor (and greatest value) in season. Specific crops and harvest dates will depend on your region’s climate and most of these are only available locally in temperate regions.

 

What types of fruits and vegetables are good to eat during the winter season?  They are cabbage, celery, pears, carrots, spinach, brussels sprouts, parsnips, cauliflower, broccoli, grapefruit, sweet potatoes and yams, onions and leeks, potatoes, winter squash, mushrooms, pears and turnips.
