Nutrition and Physical Activity Monthly Tips for January:
Nutrition: Make Half Your Grains Whole
Any food made from wheat, rice, oats, cornmeal, barley, or another cereal grain is a grain product. Grains are divided into two subgroups, whole grains and refined grains. Whole grains contain the entire grain kernel – the bran, germ, and endosperm
Harvest of the Month: Kiwi
A ½ cup of sliced kiwi is an excellent source of vitamin C and vitamin K. It is also a good source of fiber.
Physical Activity: Low Cost/No Cost Physical Activity
You do not need to spend a lot of money in order to get the health benefits of being physically active. Low cost/no cost physical activity can reduce the risks of many serious health problems, increase your chances of living longer, help you get to or stay at a healthy weight, decrease your chances of becoming depressed, and is a lot of fun!
