Forbes Living TV Welcomes National Nutrition Month in March

Forbes Living welcomes National Nutrition Month in March. For many health and wellness followers, it lasts all year.

The theme for this year’s NNM is "Enjoy the Taste of Eating Right.” It highlights that eating healthy and delicious food and meals every day and all month long is not that hard. Eating healthy is affordable, colorful and nutritious. Many good-for-us foods are easy to find in grocery stores. Focus first on what you want to make and then make a list of what you need. Colorful fruits and vegetables are everywhere and add appeal to every meal. Strawberries and blueberries can be cleaned and put in small bowls so kids can sprinkle them on cereal, yogurt, waffles and pancakes. Peppers can also add variety to a meal since they come in several colors and flavors.

Portion sizes have grown to be way too large for the average American. The normal size should be half of what we are eating now. When setting the table for a meal, downsize the plate to a smaller one. When visiting a restaurant, divide the food in half and ask for a carry-out box for half of it.

Forbes Living TV suggests hiding the salt shaker and finding spice and herb alternatives for it. Buy some inexpensive spice containers and fill them with delicious combinations. Then put them on the table. Take everyone to the store and ask them to pick out their favorite fruits, veggies and other healthful items. Welcome National Nutrition Month into your home by making some small changes the whole family will have no objection to.
