National Nutrition Month


National Nutrition Month

 

CELEBRATE NATIONAL NUTRITION MONTH AT THE Y

We are dedicated to helping our members achieve the healthy lifestyles they desire. One component of that healthy lifestyle is diet. We are excited to share with you the most recent scientifically-based recommendations
from the top nutrition scientists around the world on the healthiest eating style to follow, the PLANT-FORWARD pattern.


PLANT-FORWARD is defined as follows: A style of cooking and eating that emphasizes and celebrates, but is not limited to, plant-based foods – including fruits and vegetables (produce); whole grains; beans, other
legumes (pulses), and soy foods; nuts and seeds; plant oils; and herbs and spices – and that reflects evidence-based principles of health and sustainability.


To help you move “PLANT-FORWARD” we’ll be providing you with nutrition tips and recipes throughout the month. We hope that this will inspire you to seek out other similar recipes, or even create your own!
