A healthy lifestyle includes getting the recommended amounts of physical activity, managing your stress, eating healthfully, and more! The MOVE IT team physical activity challenge (see here to learn more or click here to register) will help you become or stay active, while having fun with your colleagues! However, eating a diet filled with rich nutrients that nourish our body can help us be at our physical best. March is National Nutrition Month and, thus, we want to provide you with information on how to create a diet that can help you stay on track with your health goals. We will help you recognize nutrient rich foods, how to choose, store, and prepare foods safely, learn about sugar in your foods and how it affects your body and brain, and understand how to manage dietary restrictions, including food allergies. Use the information listed below and on our facebook page to help you create a nutritious diet that will complement the activities you will be participating in for the MOVE IT challenge!
