National Nutrition Month: Tip #7

When eating healthy, food can become redundant and boring. To keep you on track, try new foods! Pick out a new fruit or vegetable each time you shop and look for a new recipe on how to prepare it. Find a specialty foods store or ethnic foods store to browse. Pick out a new whole grain and use it anywhere you would use brown rice or whole wheat pasta. Instead of just chicken and turkey, try different types of fish or even a pork tenderloin. Make food fun!
