It is appropriate and fitting that March is National Nutrition Month, since it is in between winter and spring. Winter holiday gatherings have passed and have left many of us with cherished memories and frequently unwanted weight gain!
Healthy eating and routine exercise are needed all year round,but many of us need a friendly reminder to get ourselves back on track. Be kind to your body and reacquaint yourself with healthy eating habits and fitness. Replace your unhealthy habits with smart health choices for a healthier body.
This year, the theme is "Savor the Flavor of Eating Right" and I love this because eating right shouldn't be something we look at as a sort of chore...there are so many vibrant and delicious flavors in fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts and lean proteins, all of which are really good for you! Appreciate all of the variety there is in natural, healthy foods and savor all of those wonderful flavors, while knowing that your body is savoring the nourishment you're providing it!
A great way to keep your lifestyle healthy is by eating lots of protein, fiber, and healthy carbs... they will boost your metabolism and keep you feeling full all day long! This recipe features garbanzo beans, which are a great source of protein and fiber... it's also vegetarian, gluten-free and low in cholesterol. Best of all, this recipe we found on
health.com only takes a few minutes to prep and is ready to eat in 30 minutes!
