March is National Nutrition Month and the focus is “Enjoy the taste of eating right”. So is it really possible for today’s busy families to eat fast, thrifty and healthy? According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics the answer is yes. Study after study has proven that people will choose taste over healthy more than 90% of the time, which a lot of the time means more sugars and more fat. But like the experts will tell you eating healthy doesn’t have to taste blasé. Eating healthy is actually becoming the “new norm” with healthier versions of not so healthy foods being seen more often than not in the grocery stores and at restaurants. And don’t forget you can spice up your life by experimenting with different types of seasonings and herbs, which by the way have added health benefits all on their own. If you have an insatiable sweet tooth, fresh fruit is one of nature’s sweetest gifts, and fresh fruit with a dollop of creamy yogurt is deliciously satisfying. It’s no longer a factor of having to look hard to find great tasting healthy foods. Excuses for why we may not be eating healthy are getting harder and harder to come up with.
