Tips for National Nutrition Month – Baked Fish Recipe

It’s National Nutrition month! Nutrition is much more than what you put on your plate — let’s look at some ways you can improve your health and nutrition. First, it is so important to eat a variety fruits and vegetables, but other sources of lean proteins are important too! Trying to eat seafood twice a week is a good way to include more omega-3s in your diet. This is important for muscle activity, immunity, digestion, and your eyes and brain.  

Reading nutrition labels is a great way to watch what you’re putting in your body. It is important to avoid foods that contain added sugars. Reading labels is also a great way to make sure you’re eating enough calories, especially if you’re active and need to balance how much energy you’re burning.  

Try to reduce food waste by planning meals based on leftovers. Managing your food at home will help you plan creative meals and implement cooking. Cooking meals is a great way to watch what you eat and plan healthy meals with your family. Try this baked fish recipe; you can easily add vegetables or potatoes on the side!
