How is everyone's week going? Hard to believe it is already Wednesday. Did you know what else today is?
National RD Day!
Yes, that is an actual thing. No, I am not just making it up for my benefit. March is National Nutrition Month, a great time for a health challenge if you ask me. This year's theme is "Enjoy the Taste of Eating Right" you can learn more here.
We celebrated at work today with t-shirts!
|Please excuse the selfie.|
I ordered t-shirts for all the Food and Nutrition staff to wear as a team. But I digress...
I hope you've found ways to 'enjoy the taste of eating right' over the past week of the Challenge. Maybe even tried some new vegetarian recipes for our week 2 goal? I ate meatless Monday and today...and even tried a new recipe Monday!
It went something like this...
wake up. Crossfit. Protein shake. Oatmeal. [teach Diabetes Education Class] Snacked on hard-boiled eggs. [screened inpatients for those at nutrition risk] Ate a salad with beans and quinoa for lunch. [did nutrition assessments on those in the hospital] Snacked on yogurt and blueberries. [planned nutrition presentation for Tuesday in Denver and other fun work like that] Made a delicious dinner of spaghetti squash with broccoli and this Creamy Cauliflower sauce topped with parmesan.
I posted it to our Facebook Group. (Are you a member yet?!)
So meatless/healthy does not have to mean boring.
Have you gone meatless for a day yet? Or found ways to eat more meatless meals this week? Getting in your workouts for the week? Today is a great day to recommit to your goals. I know I am.
