MARCH IS NATIONAL NUTRITION MONTH
How to Graze Your Way to Better Health
It may not surprise you to learn that the average person opens their refrigerator door at least six to eight times a day. “Snacking is taking over the traditional meal,” reports best-selling author Susan Levy, who points out that fewer of us are sitting down to a home-cooked dinner while more of us are relying on takeout or processed foods.
Saying that grazing or snacking can be a good thing, Susan will share how to avoid the adult version of putting on what she calls the Grazing 20, the adult equivalent of the Freshman 15 weight gain.
In this fun segment Susan will explain:
- Why you should plan to snack between lunch and dinner.
- 7 snacks that will satisfy you and your body.
- Ways to tell a good-for-you cracker from a poor choice.
- What you see is what you eat: why you need to be careful about what foods you place at eye level or in the front of the fridge.
- Which popular “healthy” snack parents give kids isn’t so healthy.
- Why America is the only country that has separate foods for kids and adults.
