March is National Nutrition Month and a great time to look at your diet. A healthy diet is a key part of living a healthy lifestyle. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says healthy eating can lower your risk of some diseases, boost immunity and improve other areas of your health. There are lots of simple things you can do to make sure you are getting all the vitamins and minerals you need to thrive.
Simple tips for healthy eating
Try following these tips from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics to jump start your eating habits:
Keep yourself motivated by making these changes slowly. Doing a complete overhaul on your diet can burn you out, but making small changes over time can help you build healthy eating habits that stick. And if you have a day when you don’t eat as healthy as you would like, you can always get back on track during your next meal. The important thing is that you keep putting in the effort to eat healthy.
