March is National Nutrition Month, and this year’s theme encourages us to “Put Your Best Fork Forward.”
Throughout National Nutrition Month, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics provides online resources o help people make small “shifts” toward healthier eating patterns.
In honor of National Nutrition Month, we want to provide you with one of our favorite local resources. We often hear people say, “I know what I should eat, I just don’t always eat it.” We recognize there are many barriers that can make healthy eating challenging: lack of time, easy access to high-calorie foods, and the overall cost of nutrient-rich foods.
To overcome these barriers, we often recommend planning ahead for meals and snacks, shopping from a grocery list, and devoting time to meal prep. Despite the best laid plans and intentions, sometimes we need to outsource some of that work to make healthy eating MORE CONVENIENT.
Enter, Clean Eatz!
Clean Eatz offers a café with quick-serve meal options for healthy eating on-the-go, in addition to more structured meal plans. The meal plans can help you to make healthy choices during the week, and take the guesswork AND TIME out of meal planning.
As dietitians, we LOVE the fact that all of the meals are low in calories and fat, have no added sugar or sodium, and are actually AFFORDABLE!
On Tuesday, March 21st from 5:30 to7 pm we sampled some Clean Eatz meal plans and learned how they fit into your healthy lifestyle before or after weight loss surgery.
