Each year since the late 1970’s, in Canada and around the rest of the world, Nutrition Month is celebrated in March. The theme for this year’s campaign in Canada is “Take a 100 Meal Journey – Make Small Changes, One Meal at a Time”. Why 100 meals you ask? It’s approximately the number of meals you will eat in March. The country’s dietitians therefore encourage you to make better dietary choices throughout these 100 meals… And all those that will follow.
For each of the five weeks of March, Dietitians of Canada propose a theme to improve your eating habits. I take this opportunity to give you a few tips to help you apply them:
To start well, why not renew your stock of recipes? Click here to search through SOSCuisine’s personalized recipes, which can be adapted to your dietary preferences and habits.
Little or no cooking experience? Lacking time and energy to cook in the evening? Take a look at our Recipes for Beginners, each of them easy to make and using a maximum of 6 ingredients, they will certainly help!
Since you should eat at least 3 times a day every day, you might as well use the opportunity to take care of yourself at the same time. Choose primarily fresh and wholesome foods and avoid as much as possible processed foods that have often poor nutrition quality and are full of added sugars, salt and saturated fats.
It’s good to strive to choose better foods, but it isn’t everything. It’s also important to choose the right portion size for each of the Canada Food Guide’s food groups. Are you a bit unsure of what exactly constitutes a portion? For each SOSCuisine recipe, you can find under the “Nutrition Info” tab the number of portions contained in the recipe for each of the Canada Food Guide’s food groups.
