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 to ensure you're living a healthy and nutritious life-style.

Continue to check back each Monday for the coming week's tips. Share your experiences, tips and efforts to complete the 31 Days of Healthy Living Challenge on our blog, Facebook and Twitter. See the full calendar.

Start March off by Journaling
Write down everything you eat and drink to put your intake into perspective and hold yourself accountable! Food journaling has been shown to double a person’s weight loss success!

Get Your Plate in Shape
Add variety and color to your meals by making half your plate fruits and vegetables, choosing lean proteins, eating half your grains as whole grains, and switching to fat-free or low-fat dairy products.

Choose Whole Grains
Whole grains are a better choice than white or refined grains because they provide more fiber and help reduce the risks of many chronic diseases. Read food labels to ensure that the first ingredient says whole wheat, brown rice, or whole grain flour.

Don’t forget to submit a recipe for our 25th Anniversary Recipe Contest. Submit a recipe for a soup, salad or entrée and your recipe may be featured on our menu for clients facing HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life challenging illnesses.
