Enjoy the Taste of Eating Right: National Nutrition Month® 2014
Each calendar month has special recognition from Heart Month, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and National Nutrition Month®. March is set as National Nutrition Month®. Each year a theme is chosen to target messages about healthy eating. I love this years theme, Enjoy the Taste of Eating Right! Often my clients, friends and other people I over hear comment how healthy doesn’t taste good, or it’s too hard, or a host of other misconceptions. This month will be devoted to giving ideas on “how” to enjoy the taste of eating right. I welcome your comments and suggestions as well. A new motto to adopt, “beige is boring” when you’re referring to your meals and snacks!
No wonder people “want something” after dinner. Too many people spend their day eating beige foods that don’t satiate and /or juicing the rest so they don’t enjoy chewing. How not fun is that?!
Your challenge for March is to slow down and savor your meals and snacks, enjoy the flavors, smells and textures. We all have the foods we “love” and those that we think are nasty. Experiment with adding the in-between foods to balance your meals and see if they don’t become some new loves!
Let’s start with typical breakfast.
