I have a fun new sneak peek for you today, this time from the popular Art of Health Bulletin Board Banner.
This new handout highlights the importance of building balanced meals and eating them mindfully. Check it out!
They're easier than you think!
Nutrition and Art:
Building a balanced eating pattern while shifting away from unhealthy habits doesn’t have to be tough and unpleasant work.
Instead, make each meal a work of art, focusing on the proper portions and proportions of nutrient-dense foods!
Mindfulness and Nutrient-Density:
Fill your plate with foods that are rich in nutrients and low in empty calories.
The plate in this photo is a great example. Grilled fish topped with fresh fruit salsa is nestled between brown rice and spaghetti squash, with a bright arugula and tomato salad to round out the plate. Don’t miss that glass of milk on the side either!
This nutritious plate is very low in added sugars, sodium, saturated fat, and trans fat. Instead, the plate focuses on healthy protein, whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables, and low-fat dairy. What a great example of an artful meal!
When you eat, sit down at a table and really enjoy the flavor of each bite. This mindfulness makes meals more fun!
If you liked the preview, be sure to get the handout too!
