It’s National Nutrition Month!
For me, that means celebrating real foods and real nutrition with my patients. Learning about foods and their different metabolic effects on the body may change the way you view nutrition and how you choose to fuel yourself.
We all have motivators in our life- personal goals, people we love, roles to assume. They motivate us to be our best selves. It may be to be a parent who can be active with their kids and have the energy to keep up with them. It may be to be a hard-working employee who works hard at work and then goes home to be an invested spouse and parent, or it may be to be an attentive student and learn all that you can in order to serve others well in a future job.
This month, challenge yourself to improve one, just ONE aspect of your nutritional health! Acknowledge the things that are working in your diet, and then acknowledge the things that are keeping you from fueling yourself properly. It can be as simple as decreasing processed foods, trying a new recipe each week, or cutting down on soft drinks. It’s okay to start small, as long as you start somewhere. So how about it? Find a way this month to step in the direction of making positive nutrition changes that will lead to a healthier you!
