Enjoy the Taste of Eating Right, National Nutrition Month March 2014

By Health Promotion Disease Prevention Committee
Friday, March 28, 2014

Does eating healthy mean everything “tastes like cardboard?”  Of course not!  “Enjoy the Taste of Eating Right” is the March 2014 National Nutrition Month theme from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and your Truman VA registered dietitians.  Registered Dietitian Day also takes place in March and was celebrated on March 12 this year.  This event raises awareness of registered dietitians and their role of helping others through food and nutrition.

Be daring and creative!  Combine different herbs and spices to create new flavors.  With a little bit of planning, you can bring out the flavors of foods with herbs and spices or small amounts of fruit juice without adding fat or sodium. And don’t forget to get some physical activity!

Your Truman VA registered dietitians can help you learn to make wise food choices so you can plan healthy meals and enjoy the taste of eating right. Contact your PACT team for more information.
