March Newsletter: National Nutrition Month

June 24, 2022 

National Nutrition Month
It’s National Nutrition Month! Created by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND), this year’s theme is Celebrate a World of Flavors. Libby Mills, a national spokesperson for the AND says, “Celebrating the cultural heritage, traditions and recipes from all people is a tasty way to nourish ourselves, learn about one another and find appreciation in our diversity.” Here are some ways you can celebrate a world of flavors:
Put a Greek-inspired spin on your snack by dipping raw veggies in tzatziki, a yogurtbased dressing made with cucumbers and dill.
Munch on steamed edamame, or Japanese soybeans, as an appetizer.
Experiment with spices like turmeric, cardamom, ginger, red chilis, and garam masala to create a warm and comforting Indian curry dish.
Top a slice of whole wheat toast with tomatoes, olive oil, garlic, basil, and oregano for a fresh Italian bruschetta. Whip up a Mexican-inspired omelet with black beans, bell peppers, and sliced avocado. Top with salsa, diced green chilies, or cotija cheese. Challenge yourself to broaden your horizons and try something new this month!
