31 Days of Healthy Living: Week 1

Welcome to our 31 Days of Healthy Living Challenge.

In honor of National Nutrition Month, we are sharing 31 easy and important tips which can ensure you're living a healthy and nutritious life-style. 

Continue to check back each Monday for the coming week's tips and on Thursday's for a great new recipe. Share your experiences, tips and efforts to complete the 31 Days of Healthy Living Challenge. See the full calendar.

Start the Month off Right by Journaling

Each day, write down everything you eat and drink. This will put your intake into perspective so you can hold yourself accountable. Food journaling has been shown to double a person’s weight loss.

Take a Food Vacation Tonight

Spice up your Friday night with a chicken and brown rice Asian style stir-fry. Or, go Greek and make a salad with fresh tomatoes, red onion, cucumbers, olives, feta and light olive oil dressing

Give Your Plate a Little Color

It’s easy to eat a well-rounded meal if you make sure to have lots of color on your plate. ½ of your plate should be fruits or veggies, ¼ is for whole grains and ¼ is for lean protein. A cup of dairy is the perfect complement.

Build a Heart-Healthy Diet

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. Begin taking steps towards heart health by eating a diet low in saturated fat and sodium, and high in fiber and omega-3 fatty acids.

  1. I will definitely make a callendar where I will write down everything I eat and drink. This will stimulates me not to eat food which is not healthy. I will definitely keep on visiting your website for other useful tips.
