Getting the Best Nutrition from the Foods You Eat

You are what you eat.  We’ve heard that saying all of our lives… but what are you eating?  Even if you try to eat healthy, is your body missing out?  We’re highlighting National Nutrition Month.  According to a health.gov’s 2015-2020 dietary guidelines recommendations, half of all Americans, 117 million people, have one or more preventable chronic diseases related to poor nutrition and lack of physical activity.  They include cardiovascular disease, high-blood pressure, type-2 diabetes, poor bone health… even some cancers.
