March is nutrition month across North America. As a dietitian and member of Dietitians of Canada, it is my pleasure to remind you of the importance of healthy eating this month. The Dietitians of Canada have made this year’s theme Best Food Forward: Plan, Shop, Cook, Enjoy!
I am taking this opportunity to help you think about your nutrition and get into healthy eating habits in two ways:
SHARE YOUR BEST HEALTH TIP WITH ME AND WIN
During nutrition month, I want to hear what your favourite health tips are. Leave your tip in a comment below. Each health tip you leave will give you one entry into a draw to win a VISA gift card. Draw will be selected at random on March 31st.
Make sure to follow me on Twitter, I will also be posting daily nutrition tips during the month of March.
JOIN MY DIG IN CHALLENGE TEAM
In recognition of this year’s theme, I have entered a team in the Dig in Challenge, a local initiative that touches on all my personal beliefs to plan, shop, cook and eat healthy —something I have coached many of you in. I invite you to join my team, Ultimate Potentials in this challenge. (Register under workplace and type in Ultimate Potentials as team name.)
What is it? The Dig-In Challenge is a local food initiative aimed at getting Manitobans to eat foods that are healthy, and local, sustainable, and fairly traded.
How much time will it take? Dedicate as little or as much as you want.
How much does it cost? It’s free!
Wising you as always health, happiness and peace,
Phyllis Reid-Jarvis, Dietitian Coach
