March is National Nutrition Month®, a time to spread awareness about healthy eating. This year’s theme is “Enjoy the Taste of Eating Right” which focuses on combining taste and nutrition to create healthy meals that follow USDA Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
Typically, people choose foods for taste, not nutrition. The good news is you can have both – taste and health! Here are some tips for finding delicious foods that are also good for you:
To celebrate National Nutrition Month, the registered dietitians at Cary Hospital will host an interactive display in Points West Café from noon to 1 pm every Wednesday during the month of March. Stop by for tips on creating healthy meals, chat with a nutrition expert, and learn the basics on heart health, diabetes and weight loss.
Additionally, Raleigh Campus’ Café 3000 will feature a new healthy recipe every Friday in March. The recipes will include nutritious ancient grains, spicy flavors, local ingredients and flavorful teas. Learn more here. Remember you have approximately 10,000 taste buds, so don’t be afraid to experiment with new flavors and recipes!
