We could all stand to eat a little bit better. But eating better doesn’t doesn’t mean you have to endure meals consisting of nothing but asparagus and cauliflower — unless, of course, you totally want to.
Contrary to what you’ll see on TV or hear on the radio, there’s so much more to embracing a healthy diet than sacrificing flavor or your lifestyle.
National Nutrition Month, celebrated every March, is centered around the idea that there are countless ways for adults and children to create healthy diets that fit their lifestyles. That’s why the Academy of Nutrition and Diabetics wants you to “Put Your Best Fork Forward” this month and find the diet that works for you.
