Happy National Nutrition Month!
March is National Nutrition Month
In honor of NNM - I want to share my top 5 food nutrition tiny tips, huge benefits for any person, any age to drive.
Hydration - here is a quick test, look at your pee. Yes, look at the color. If it is a light yellow, you are hydrated. If it is a dark yellow you need more H20. If, it is really, really light, i.e. clear and you have to pee every hour, u r drinking too much H20.
Balance your meals. Nutritionally. Even snacks. Have all three macronutrients, Protein, Fats, & Carbs and..fiber each time you eat. This will aid in better digestion, absorption & satisfy you sooner, so you will stop when you are full.
Portions. Use your body to measure food on your plate. Rule of thumb for each meal ( scale for snacks) 2 open hands for fruit/veg. Like one apple and one half bell pepper. Fist full of carbs, palm amt. of protein & a thumb of fat.
Eat all the colors. I know sounds kinda cheesy. But do it. Vary your selection of fruit/veg to get optimal nutrients.
Select purposefully & eat mindfully. Be aware of what you are eating & eat with awareness.
You officially have some Eat Smarts! carry on and thrive.
