We all have the best intentions to "eat right" but something gets in the way. For some, it is lack of knowledge of how to shop for healthful foods. For others it is a perceived lack of time and dependence on less healthful convenience products that prevents them from embracing better eating. For many, it is making healthful foods taste good (just as good as those prepared foods or take out) that limits their desire to want to eat healthfully. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics offers these tips for boosting both the taste and nutrition of your meals...a "plate lift"
Recently, the team at Guiding Stars asked me what the theme of National Nutrition Month 2013, "Eat Right, Your Way, Every Day" means to me. Naturally, I had an answer.
It sounds simple enough- eat when you are hungry. Yet most of us don't know how to eat at the right time and we struggle to distinguish physical hunger from emotional hunger. I strongly believe that learning what it means to be truly, physically hungry and how to stop when you are just full enough, is an essential part of healthy living and critical to reaching and maintaining healthy weight.
