March Wellness Theme: Healthy Eating
Westwind's Wellness theme for March is HEALTHY EATING!
Canada’s Food Guide recommends eating a variety of healthy foods each day. This includes eating plant-based foods more often and choosing highly-processed foods less often.
The new Canada Food Guide also includes the following healthy eating habits:
- Be mindful of your eating habits
- Cook more often
- Enjoy your food
- Eat meals with others
There are also incredible psychological benefits of eating healthy, including a reduction of depression symptoms, improvement in brain function, increased energy levels and improved self-esteem! CLICK HERE to learn more.
Also, did you know that March is Nutrition Month? This year, Canadian dietitians are emphasizing that healthy eating is about so much More Than Food, and would like us to think about not only what we eat, but how we eat! To learn more, CLICK HERE.
Join us in eating healthy for the month of March, and establishing healthier relationships with food that will set the tone for the rest of 2020!
