By K'DAWN JACKSONIHMS Health Educator Submitted by HCHC Hello and welcome to Na- tional Nutrition Month! March is National Nutrition Month and the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics encourages everyone to "Get Your Plate in Shape"! This message is to inspire everyone to include healthy foods from all food groups. The USDA's My Plate is a great tool to guide and help us be mindful of the foods that make up a balanced eating plan. Acad- emy Spokesperson• Andrea Giancoli says "'vegetables, fruits. whole grains• lean proteins and low-fat dairy products contain the nutrients we need to maintain healthy lifestyles." Be sure to in- clude foods from all food groups and always use portion control Giancoli offers the following recommendations to "Get Your Plate in Shape": Make half your plate fruits and vegetables. Eat a variety of vegetables. When buying canned vegetables, choose "reduced so- dium" or "'no salt added". Dried or frozen fruit and those in canned water or in their own juice are good options when fresh va- rieties are not available. Make sure every meal and snack has at least one fruit or vegetable or both. Make at least half your g(ains whole. Choose brown rie, barley and oats and other wole grains for your sides and igredients. Switch to 100-per- cent whole-grain breads, cereals ad crackers. Check the ingredi- ent list on food packages to find foods that are made with whole grains. Switch to fat-free or low-fat milk. Fat-free and tow-fat milk have the same amount of calcium and other essential nutrients as whole milk, but less fat and fewer calories. If you are lactose intol- erant, try lactose-free milk or a calcium-fortified soy beverage. Vary your protein choices. Eat a variety of foods each week frOm the protein food group like safood, nuts and beans, as well as lean meat, poultry and eggs. Eat more plant-based proteins sdch as nuts, beans• whole grains, arid whole soy foods like tofu and n{aefihekamamse" At least twice a Week, and seafood the pro- tin n your plate. Keep meat and poultry portions lean and limit to three ounces per meal. Cut hack on sodium and empty calories from solid fasts and added sugars. Drink water instead of energy drinks like regu- lar soda. sweetened teas and coffees. Choose 100-percent fruit juice. Compare sodium in food and choose those with the least amount listed on the Nutrition Facts Panel Season foods with spices or herbs instead of salt. Select lean cuts of meat or poul- try and fat-free or low-fat dairy products. Use heart-healthy oils like olive, canola, and sunflower oil in place of better or shorten- ing when cooking• Giancoli recommends cook- ing more often at home, where you are in control of what is in your food. If you do eat out, look for the Viva NM Restaurants in Grant and Hidalgo Cbunty! These local restaurants highlight heart healthy menu options that make it easy to eat healthy when eat- ing out with family and friends. And don't forget that exercise and healthy eating are crucial to maintaining a healthy lifestyle!
