It’s Time for a Nutrition Checkup!
Living a healthy lifestyle means that you are regularly making sure you’re eating the right foods. This applies to both those on a weight loss journey and those who have been living healthy for many years. As you age or as lose weight, your body and metabolism change. So, you must make sure you’re still eating the foods that work for your body. As we kick off National Nutrition Month in March, let’s look at a few tips that can help keep your nutrition in good shape.
What are you snacking on?
It’s been an uncommon year for the entire world. Everyone’s routine, including their diets, have been turned around. With more people staying at home, it’s easier to open that cupboard and grab some snacks. Now is a good time to take inventory of how often you’re doing mindless snacking. Every time you find yourself going for a snack, drink a glass of water instead. If you feel like you’re still hungry grab a piece of fruit instead of a bag of chips.
How many times a week are you ordering out?
Food delivery services are on the rise. They’re making it easy to bring your favorite restaurant meals to your home. With people staying home more with the kids, work, and house chores taking priority, ordering out seems like an easy choice. There is certainly nothing wrong with ordering out, just make sure you’re limiting fried, processed foods. Another good option for busy individuals is ordering from meal prep companies that are happy to accommodate most diet plans.
Are you making fruits and vegetables a priority?
I know it may seem like a no brainer, but when we let our guard down on our diet, fruits and veggies are usually the first to go. Make sure you’re still getting nutrient-rich veggies in your daily meals. Look at trying new recipes with some of your favorite vegetables. You can do a lot with carrots and cauliflower, so don’t give up on your favorite vegetables. Soups are a great way to get a lot of veggies in one punch!
Make sure you’re getting the 90 essential nutrients
However, you can follow the best diet in the world and you still may not be getting adequate nutrition. Many conventional, and even organic, farming methods can often remove nutrients from the soil. So, you still need to make sure you’re supplementing your diet with a Healthy Body Start Pak. These Paks contain the 90 essential nutrients needed for optimal health as recommended by Dr. Wallach.
This month, and every month, let’s focus on nutrition and make sure we’re giving our bodies what they need to thrive!
