Recipe of the Day or a Healthy Diet Habit Tip of the Day
National Nutrition Week is September 1-7!
Nutrition is described as getting the nutrients that your body needs to be healthy. What does that mean? Everywhere you turn you are told to do this and that, until you have no clue. You have heard it all, but do not really know what it means enough to apply it to your life. Your motto is, "If it tastes great, I will eat it!"
Unfortunately fast food restaurants and processed food manufacturers know your motto well! They add fats, sugars, and salt, to their empty nutritionally bankrupt foods to make them taste delicious!
These foods cause food cravings, blood sugar highs and lows, plus weight gain. Our culture now is a large one, with 2/3 of our people overweight or obese.
Find out some basics about Nutrition from Kerry's Healthy Diet Habits website!
