National Nutrition Month

National Nutrition Month 2018

National Nutrition Month is here once again!

This year the theme is “Go Further with Food.” I really like the message this portrays.  Those of you who have worked with me know that I am a big supporter of eating whole foods.  Food in its natural state always provides greater nutritional benefits than it’s processed competitor.  Processing can strip foods of vitamins, minerals, fiber, and phytochemicals.  So grab that banana, apple, cucumber, or pepper and enjoy nature’s fast food!  Your body will thank you!

Another important component of this year’s message is avoiding food waste.  Menu planning (another one of my favorite topics) plays a huge part in reducing food waste.  It also saves time and money.  You can read one of my blog posts about menu planning  here.

Stay tuned for more tips this month…….

Cheers!
