31 Days of Healthy Living: Week 5


Congratulations, you made it to the LAST WEEK of National Nutrition Month. 

We hope you've found these tips and ideas helpful and that you've been able to create healthy habits that will not only take you into April, but last for many months and years to come.

MONDAY, MARCH 26TH
Pick Up a Plum 

A diet rich in blue and purple foods can have anti-aging benefits, prevent urinary tract issues, help with memory and reduce cancer risks. When you head to the store throw some blackberries, blueberries, eggplants or plums in the cart.

TUESDAY, MARCH 27TH
Make Your Sweets Nutritious

Swimsuit season is right around the corner. Instead of cookies and ice cream, opt for a snack made of layered berries with yogurt and granola. Or, slice and grill a pineapple or banana sprinkled with cinnamon, toasted pecans and crushed bran flakes.

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 28TH
Bake a Potato

If you leave off the butter and sour cream, a baked potato can make a great meal or side dish. Try topping yours with salsa, broccoli and low-fat cheese or beans.

THURSDAY, MARCH 29TH
Try Vegetarian

For breakfast mix nuts and raisins into Oatmeal. At lunch choose a veggie soup with whole grain toast. And, for dinner whip up a tofu stir-fry.

FRIDAY, MARCH 30TH
Cut Up Some Veggies

Keeping cut vegetables handy will make it easier to make good choices when looking for a snack or quick nibble. Red, green and yellow peppers, carrots, broccoli, celery and snap peas make a great snack.

SATURDAY, MARCH 31ST
Give Yourself a Pat on the Back


This month has been full of new ideas and challenges but you’ve started to adapt a healthy lifestyle – congratulations! Don’t stop here, keep up the great work!
