Nutrition Month - Go Further with Food

March 2, 2018

“You are what you eat.” We’ve all heard it, and many of us have jokingly used the common saying amongst one another. But there really is a kernel of truth there. Eating healthy can help us be healthy. There’s never a bad time to talk about healthy eating, but March is an especially good opportunity because it’s National Nutrition Month® – a time to focus on making smart food choices, establishing healthy eating habits and ensuring that we are doing what we can to reduce food waste. Did you know that it’s estimated that an average 300 pounds of food per person is thrown away each year? This year’s theme from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics is “Go Further with Food” – a reminder for all of us to get the most out of what we eat while wasting the least. Here are a few simple ways you can help make your food go further.

Be Smart. Love Your Heart.

February 2, 2018

Your heart is one of the hardest working muscles you’ve got. It ticks around the clock to keep you alive and only gets a break when you’re relaxing or sleeping. With so much riding on this essential muscle, it’s important to treat it smart. According to the American Heart Association, one in four people die of heart disease every year. And it’s not playing favorites – heart disease is the number one killer of men and women. In fact, more women die of heart disease than from most cancers combined.

New Year's Health

January 16, 2018

Ask anyone what their New Year’s resolution is and chances are they’ll mention a determination to eat healthier. While many of us may consider a renewed focus on healthy eating as a way to make up for the rich indulgences of the holiday season or as a pathway to fit more comfortably into that favorite pair of jeans, healthy eating comes with even greater rewards. It can reduce our risk of illnesses like heart disease, diabetes and cancer; and it can help boost our energy, sharpen our memories and stabilize our mood, leading to a noticeable improvement in our overall health.
