Nutrition and Physical Activity Monthly Tips for May:
Nutrition: Eating Better On a Budget
Get the most for your food budget! There are many ways to save money on the foods that you eat. The three main steps are planning before you shop, purchasing the items at the best price, and preparing meals that stretch your food dollars.
Harvest of the Month: Berries
A ½ cup of berries – like blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries – is a good source* of vitamin C. This vitamin helps the body heal cuts and wounds and lower the risk of infection. A ½ cup of most berries is also a good source* of fiber, which helps you feel full. Berries are rich in phytochemicals that may help you stay healthy.
Physical Activity: Biking
Biking is a form of aerobic physical activity, which can help to increase your chances of living longer, decrease your risk of many serious health problems, stay or get to a healthy weight, and decrease your chances of becoming depressed. It also strengthens bones, muscles and joints, reduces arthritis and disability, improves mental health and mood, and prevents falls in older adults. Not only is biking a great way to get physical activity, it can also be used as a form of transportation and helps to reduce air pollution. It is also a lot of fun!
