Put your best fork forward: Celebrating National Nutrition Month


Put your best fork forward: Celebrating National Nutrition Month
Elko Daily Free Press

Include more fruits and vegetables in your diet aiming for at least half your plate to consist of these nutrient-dense foods. Challenge yourself to eat at least 50% of your grains from a whole grain. This includes whole grain breads, rice, pastas, and cereals. Aim for low-fat or fat-free dairy products and include a variety of lean protein, including plant-based proteins, in your meals. The more variety of healthful foods you have in the diet, the broader spectrum of nutrients you will provide your body.Practice cooking more at home and experiment with healthier ingredients. This is a great opportunity to get the whole family involved. Let each person take a turn at planning a new meal and preparing it at home. Try taking your favorite recipe and modifying it to be healthier. For example, substitute unsweetened applesauce for the butter, use low fat milk instead of cream or whole milk, switch to whole grain pasta instead of refined pasta.
