This month is National Nutrition Month, and this year encourages you to savor the flavor of eating right.
Social food experiences, like family dinners holiday gatherings, and meals with friends, can help you cook healthier meals together.
Savor your food. When you notice the flavors and textures of the food, you’ll enjoy it more and feel full faster.
Enjoying food traditions can help you get cooking. Learn to make your family’s traditional dishes and find healthy substitutes, like low-sodium soy sauce.
Think about where you eat. If you eat at your desk or TV a lot, try somewhere you can focus on your food instead of multitasking.
Consider talking to a nutritionist. They can help you make informed food choices based on your personal needs.
Cut back on salt with fresh products, by cooking at home, and by flavoring food with herbs and citrus.
Avoid soda and sugary snacks. Small portions of sweet treats or fruits can satisfy your sweet tooth.
