Happy March 1st and Happy National Nutrition Month.
As a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist of 33 years and a proud member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics- I am always excited when March comes along. It is a great time to shout from the rooftops that I love my work, and am looking forward to ways to share the message of good Nutrition. This year’s theme is “Savor The Flavor of Eating Right”. What a wonderful message!
We as mothers, sisters, fathers, brothers, daughters, sons, friends, employees and employers, students and teachers all eat with others all of the time. For me, food is the glue of relationships- we share a meal, a snack, a drink. As my many ethnic friends say “We break bread together”.
No matter your nationality or your favorite food, there is someone out there to share your common bond and love of food with. I do this every day with you my clients and friends.
So share your favorites together in a healthful way. I just had a fabulous breakfast with my beloved college aged son. We had egg white omelettes with salsa, whole grain toast ( mine was gluten free for my food sensitivities) and Canadian bacon with healthy fruit spread. We used low fat cheeses (mine was dairy free) and vegetable spreads rather than butter. It was delicious and we enjoyed our time together.
Savor your flavor, your health and your relationships. I will write all month long with great tips for you!
Happy National Nutrition Month!
