Put Your Best Fork Forward

Long-lasting dietary changes start with small changes! March is National Nutrition Month, so “Put Your Best Fork Forward” is a reminder that you hold the power to make healthier nutrition choices. No need to try a fad diet, just make small changes gradually. Celebrate National Nutrition Month by putting your best fork forward. Here are a few ideas of some small changes to help you get started!

  • Chew your Calories! Replace at least one soda each day with one glass of water this month!
  • Having a burger or pizza for lunch? Yum! Add a small salad on the side.
  • Replace those chips! Try a handful of nuts and one small piece of fruit for a snack.
  • Make the vegetable portions on your dinner plate twice the size of your meat portion.
  • Try a new fruit or veggie each week during March 2017.
  • Eat at least 4 servings of vegetables on at least 5 days of every week in March 2017.
  • Observe Meatless Monday on every Monday in March 2017.
  • Go lean with the protein! Choose leaner cuts of meat when you are shopping or eating out.
  • Choose whole grain or whole wheat whenever possible.
  • Aim to eat at least three meals per day. Start your morning with a healthy breakfast!
  • Pack some healthy snacks in advance. Try raw veggies with low-fat cottage cheese, or a tablespoon of peanut butter with an apple or banana.
  • Manage your weight or lower your health risks by consulting the Recreational Services Nutritionist. Contact: 404-413-1779 http://recreation.gsu.edu/fitness/fitness-center/nutrition-consultations/

Start creating sustainable health changes this March by making a few small alterations to your eating habits. Keep it simple by taking it one forkful at a time!
