Savor the Flavor of Eating Right

March is National Nutrition Month, and this year it’s all about enjoying and appreciating our food.

Think about it, food plays a central role in our lives. It is often the center of attention at social gatherings. We have family traditions that revolve around food. We plan social outings and events around eating. We even use food to celebrate.

So take the time to enjoy different flavors and textures. Here are some tips when eating out:

•Look at menus ahead of time. Choose restaurants that have healthier, low calorie dishes. Some menus will have a symbol that identifies these options.

•Take half of your food home. Save it for another meal.
