Sometimes figuring out what is best for you and your body can feel like a struggle! Luckily, March is Nutrition Month and Registered Dietitians across the US and Canada are sharing tips and tricks to help make healthful choices even easier. This year’s theme in the US is ‘Savor the Flavor of Eating Right’ to inspire more enjoyment of healthy meals. And in Canada we’re invited to take a 100 Meal Journey, to make small changes to how we eat, one meal at a time. These themes may be different but The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and Dietitians of Canada offer some great collective advice!
Make Healthy Snacking Easy: Stock your kitchen with easy, good-for-you snacks like whole fruits and vegetables and keep them where you can see them!
Practice Mindful Eating: Focus on your meals by separating them from screen time, whether that means turning off the TV or getting away from your desk. Activities like walking the dog and sun salutations are great distractions to avoid eating because of stress or boredom.
Try Something New: Get bored easily? Keep healthy eating interesting by trying new fruits and vegetables and adding different spices! Check out EatRight.org and cookspiration.com for great recipe ideas to change things up.
Dietitians Can Help: Not sure how to make healthy eating fit into your life? Talk to a Registered Dietitian for science-based tips and tricks. They can even help you make a meal plan that works for you and your lifestyle!
