National Nutrition Month - Part III

 

National Nutrition Month from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.  Here are the last 6 Healthy Tips.

 

1.  Banish Brown Bag Boredom

Whether it’s a lunch for work or school, prevent brown bag boredom with easy-to-fix, healthy lunch ideas. Try a whole-wheat pita pocket with veggies and hummus or a low sodium vegetable soup with whole grain crackers or a salad of mixed greens with low-fat dressing and a hard boiled egg.

 

2.  Drink More Water

Quench your thirst by drinking water instead of sugary drinks. Stay well hydrated by drinking plenty of water if you are active, live or work in hot conditions, or are an older adult.

 

3.  Explore New Foods and Flavors

Add more nutrition and eating pleasure by expanding your range of food choices. When shopping, make a point of selecting a fruit, vegetable or whole grain that’s new to you or your family. Try different versions of familiar foods like purple asparagus, Honey crisp apples, broccoli flower or quinoa.

 

4.  Eat Seafood Twice a Week

Seafood—fish and shellfish—contains a range of nutrients including healthy omega-3 fats.  Salmon, trout, oysters and sardines are higher in omega-3s and lower in mercury.   

5.  Cut Back on Added Sugars

Foods and drinks with added sugars can contribute empty calories and little or no
nutrition. Reviewing ingredients on the food label can help you identify sources of added sugar. Visit www.choosemyplate.gov for more information.

 

6.  Experiment with more plant-based meals

Expand the variety in your menus with budget friendly meatless meals. Many recipes that use meat and poultry can be made without. Eating a variety of plant foods can help. Vegetables, beans, and lentils are all great substitutes. Try including one meatless meal per week to start out.
