Spring into Health for Nutrition Month

As we roll into March, National Nutrition Month, we can rejoice that spring is right around the corner, and revitalize our healthy eating habits with the freshness and vibrancy of spring. This seasonal guide provides practical tips for nourishing your body at work, making the most of the bounty that spring offers.

1. Lighten Up Your Meals:

As the weather starts to warm up, opt for lighter meals like colourful salads or wraps filled with fresh ingredients. Fresh, seasonal produce not only adds nutritional value but also a burst of flavour to your meals. Choose lean proteins like grilled chicken, fish or plant-based proteins to keep your meals satisfying yet refreshing.  

2. Refresh Your Mindfulness Practices:

Practicing mindful eating in a busy work environment can be challenging. With the arrival of spring, take advantage of sunny days to take breaks outdoors and enjoy your meals away from work-related tasks. Eating mindfully helps you savour your food, recognize hunger and fullness cues, and fosters a healthier relationship with food.

3. Spring Clean Your Snacks:

Take a cue from the season and do a bit of "spring cleaning" in your snack choices. Clear out any less nutritious snacks from your desk and replace them with wholesome options. Consider crunchy vegetables with hummus or a handful of almonds for a satisfying and nutritious snack.

4. Renew Your Menu:

Get inspired by the season of renewal to take the reins in your own kitchen and wield the power to craft meals bursting with freshness and flavour. Imagine the joy of sizzling pans, the aroma of herbs dancing through the air, and the satisfaction of creating a healthy, delicious masterpiece with your own hands.

5. Hydrate with Infusions:

Stay hydrated with refreshing beverages that capture the essence of spring. Infuse your water with slices of citrus fruits, cucumber, or herbs like mint. This not only adds flavour but also encourages you to drink more water throughout the day, supporting your overall well-being.
