12 Days of Nutrition

My gift to YOU: 12 simple nutrition tips that you can start implementing today! 

๐ŸŽ„ Stay hydrated. The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine recommends that women should consume about 11-12 cups of water per day and that men should consume 15-16 cups of water per day. 

๐ŸŽ„  Monitor alcohol consumption. Enjoying an adult beverage from time to time is fine โ€“ but moderation is key.

๐ŸŽ„  Avoid drinks with lots of sugar. It is easy to over consume sugar and especially easy to over consume it in sugary drinks, so be aware and limit it when possible 

๐ŸŽ„  Eat lots of fruits and vegetables. They contain vitamins, minerals and fiber – so make them a staple in your diet.

๐ŸŽ„  Take Vitamin D3, especially in the winter. Our bodies absorb vitamin D from the sun. SO in the winter, we tend to get less VItamin D. We need it for bone health and muscle strength. (D3 can also lower your risk for cancer and depression.)

๐ŸŽ„  Eat whole foods, avoid processed foods. Processed foods are made in a factory and have unhealthy additives. Our bodies do better with natural, whole foods. Take a look at the food label and be sure you can pronounce all the ingredients on it!

๐ŸŽ„  Increase your fiber intake. Fiber keeps your digestive system clean and helps to rid your body of cholesterol and carcinogens.

๐ŸŽ„  Use extra virgin olive oil. It is loaded with heart healthy fats.

๐ŸŽ„  Pack in the protein. Our bodies use protein to repair cells and create new cells. Protein also helps to keep you full longer and can boost your metabolism.

๐ŸŽ„  Eat lots of nuts. While they are higher in fat, they are also packed with protein, fiber, and other nutrients.

๐ŸŽ„ Mix it up! Your diet should include a variety of different foods to ensure you get enough protein, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins and minerals – and to avoid any deficiencies. 

๐ŸŽ„ Get enough sleep each night. Your body (and all its systems) cannot operate optimally without enough sleep.

๐ŸŽ„  Take some time to sit down and enjoy your food. Research has shown that when people really chew their food and eat slower, they tend to consume less.
