National Nutrition Month!!

Did you know that March is NATIONAL NUTRITION MONTH??

National Nutrition Month - Get Your Plate in Shape

That’s right, friends! What BETTER time to get your diet in check and start eating the right foods?!?! Especially with warmer weather right around the corner, NOW is the time to get started. This is typically the time we all start working out more and making better decisions about what we put into our mouth, so why not make it a LIFESTYLE change this time? Get your friends and family on board. Make it a challenge or competition. It CAN be fun!

We have TONS of excuses why we don’t eat right, but really, there aren’t many things I can think of that are more important than our HEALTH!! There is NO excuse not to take care of yourself.

I truly believe that food can be the best preventative medicine for our body. It’s meant to be fuel, and if used properly, it can help ward off various diseases, illnesses, and even cancer. We just have to make the right choices.

I have written several posts with tips to help “Get Your Plate in Shape,” and have more coming. Check out the “Health & Fitness Junkie” tab in the nav bar because there is a LOT of good info about caffeine, super foods, weight loss tips, working out, why to skip fast food, beating a sugar addiction, etc. Here are a few of my favorite posts regarding nutrition to help you get started (maybe save it for when you have some free time to catch up on some reading):
