National Nutrition Month is back, and this year’s theme is ‘Get Your Plate in Shape.’ Before you eat, think about what goes on your plate. Foods like vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low-fat dairy and lean protein contains the nutrition you need without too many calories. Over the day, include foods from all the food groups to get your plate in shape.
One key to a healthy diet is the amount of fiber you eat each day. Experts recommend 25-30 grams of fiber daily, which can be easier to reach than you think. Not only is fiber good for your digestion, it also helps you feel full longer so it can also help you shed a few pounds.
