Food For Thought When it Comes to Nutrition
Supply chain interruptions limited holiday shopping options and delayed deliveries of the merchandise we ordered. But it has also meant a smaller variety of food products at the supermarket and fewer menu items at our favorite restaurants, forcing us to make other selections. This should not mean giving up on good nutrition.
March is National Nutrition Month, an opportunity to focus on food choices and ensuring healthy eating habits. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reminds us that colorful foods on the plate translate to healthy options. Dark, leafy greens, oranges, and tomatoes—even fresh herbs—are loaded with vitamins, fiber and minerals. Adding frozen peppers, broccoli or onions to stews and omelets gives them a quick and convenient boost of color and nutrients.
