Parish Nurse Wellness Tip
March is Nutrition Awareness Month. We seem to be bombarded with all kinds of information regarding diets and nutrition. I have to say, in my opinion, diets rarely work except while you are on the specific regime and when you are finished, any extra food added will usually cause weight gain. What does work is following a healthy eating plan of vegetables, fruits, proteins, unsaturated fats and healthy carbohydrates. It is important to be mindful that we are not eating too much and to keep the added sugar minimal.
One of the main reasons for eating healthy is to keep our bodies and immune system strong, and to prevent as much as possible disease. Go to the links below to learn more about nutrition and healthy eating.
Have a fabulous March!
