March is Nutrition Month!

Today on the show we celebrated Nutrition Month by sharing some foods that are great to start out your morning, and could even help you loose weight!

Nutrition Month is “celebrated every March, and is sponsored by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Nutrition Month focuses on helping people to make correct food choices as well as developing good eating and exercising habits” (

Healthline shared some of the 12 best foods to start your day.

  1. Eggs- Studies have shown that eating eggs at breakfast increases feelings of fullness, reduces calorie intake at the next meal and helps maintain steady blood sugar and insulin levels.
  2. Greek Yogurt- It’s made by straining whey and other liquid from milk curds, which produces a creamier yogurt that is more concentrated in protein.
  3. Coffee- It’s high in caffeine, which has been shown to improve mood, alertness and mental performance.

There are also some healthy snacks that can actually help you loose weight!

  1. Mixed Nuts- Nuts are an ideal nutritious snack. They’re linked to a reduced risk of heart disease and may help prevent certain cancers, depression, and other illnesses. Despite being relatively high in fat, they are very filling. Several studies suggest that eating nuts in moderation can help you lose weight.
  2. Apple slices with peanut butter- Apples and peanut butter taste fantastic together. Apples are high in fiber and polyphenol antioxidants that improve gut health and reduce heart disease risk. Peanut butter may have additional benefits for heart health. It has been shown to increase HDL (good) cholesterol and reduce LDL (bad) cholesterol and triglycerides.
  3. Celery sticks with cream cheese- Celery sticks with cream cheese are a classic low-carb, filling snack. Celery contains luteolin, an antioxidant that reduces inflammation and may help prevent cancer. Five small celery sticks with 2 ounces (60 grams) of cream cheese harbors fewer than 200 calories.
