In March, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics celebrates National Nutrition Month. I’ve been talking about launching a blog for almost a year, so this month seems like a fitting time to get the ball rolling. This year’s theme is “Savor the Flavor of Eating Right” which emphasizes the concept that you should think about how, when, why, and where you eat, not just what you eat. These are all important aspects of mindful eating, which encourages you to use your senses to help you choose foods that are both satisfying and nutritious. You should take the time to taste and enjoy what you are eating to develop a positive relationship with food. I believe this is a great message and work hard to practice mindful eating and encourage others to do so as well.
