March marks National Nutrition Month, a time for reflection and more importantly, action. What does this mean exactly? The theme pretty much says it all: Get Your Plate in Shape.
The campaign is based on the MyPlate guidelines set forth by Mrs. Obama and the U.S. government. MyPlate standards replaced the outdated food pyramid and is a visual representation and tool to healthy, balanced eating. As many of us know, a well-balanced diet protects us from disease while allowing us to feel our best and live life to our fullest. However, the McDonald’s drive-thru still exists and processed foods can be oh-so-convenient.
I invite you (and challenge you) to take a literal and metaphorical step in the right direction this month and take charge of the food that goes into your body and your health overall. I hope you enjoy reading this blog as one of the ways you begin and continue your journey to the best you yet.
