Enjoying the Taste of Eating Right: the Key to Life-long Heatlh

March is National Nutrition Month®, and this year's theme is "Enjoy the Taste of Eating Right".  Here are a few reasons I love this idea of enjoying food:
  • The more real satisfaction we find in "real" or "right" food, the less likely we are to munch our way through other snacks.
  • Food is designed to nourish our bodies and our souls.  In other words, food not only should make us healthy, but happy as well.
  • Eating right provides so many more flavors, textures and eye-appeal than eating pre-packaged, convenience, or fast-food.
  • A large part of America's nutrition woes come from fear, deprivation, and guilt associated with food.  Enjoying food and ridding ourselves of all the psychological, and emotional baggage of dieting opens up a whole new world of health.
I love food and my main mantra for healthy eating is: make half of what you eat plants (fruits and veggies).  So here's a glance at how I as a dietitian enjoy the taste of eating right.  I'll be posting more details throughout the month on my facebook page:
