Take charge of your health this Nutrition Month

March 1 marked the beginning of Nutrition Month. Is there a better time than now to take charge of your nutritional health? My Nutrition Month resolution is going to be to eat more fruits and vegetables. I know there are some days I don't get my seven-10 servings, and I hate that. I can feel a difference in my energy levels, my hunger and my mood. But, I vow here and now to change that. [caption id="attachment_2499" align="aligncenter" width="250" caption="Avocados are one of the best snacks in the world!"] [/caption] I asked a few of our Facebook fans to take the vow with me, and a few of them did. They also listed a few of their fave fruits and veggies, which is good because I just might run out of ideas. Here are a few: I love peaches and strawberries!!, Nicole Peetsma-Epker says Can't get enough of mangoes at the moment, Canadian Living's Editorial Assistant Teresa Sousa tells me. Bananas are my fave, Okoye Jenny shares on Facebook. Watermelon is my favorite fruit, and I love all veggies, says Facebook fan Marge Beaudette And our Facebook friend Lorraine Barrett shares an awesome tip for getting your quota: I have always eaten an apple a day, my minimum daily fruit intake. Once a week, we buy 3-4 containers of fresh berries, which we eat throughout the week. It's the vegetable quota I find hard to reach, so lately I've been drinking a V8 every day = 3 servings of veg. V8! Such a great way so get some of those serving. I'll try to add the low sodium version into my routine. Also, I've been all over avocados lately and I highly recommend them as an addition to any salad. Or, cut one in half and sprinkle with salt and pepper, and drizzle with a little bit of balsamic vinegar. That's one of the best snacks ever! Will you make a change to your diet this Nutrition Month? What's your favourite fruit or vegetable?
