Celebrate National Nutrition Month

There is even more reason than normal to make this month the month you get healthy -- it is National Nutrition Month. 
Given the fact that more than one-third of U.S. adults are obese, it is essential to develop healthy habits to help prevent obesity-related conditions like heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and certain types of cancer.

An expert joined Midday to share a few better choices that will make it easier for everyone to pick healthier options. From portable snacks, to a calorie free wine substitute, and a healthy dessert option, it is possible for food to be both nutritious and delicious.

Carrington Farms Flax/Chia Paks are a great grab and go snack. They consist of a combination of Carrington Farms’ popular sliced Organic Milled Flax Seeds with Carrington’s Organic Chia Seeds. They are Organic-certified, low carb, non-GMO and gluten-Free.
VINIA Red Grape Powder is the first-ever biofood (a new kind of superfood) and is free of sugars, calories and alcohol.  To use it all you have to do is mix the red grape powder in anything you would normally eat or drink (oatmeal, yogurt, water, smoothies, salads, etc.) for a wellness boost. One serving contains about the amount of Resveratrol found in 1,000 grapes or 1 bottle of fine red wine.

Fruttata Fruit Crisps are made from the freshest tropical fruits (think apples, bananas, mangos and pineapples). The fruit goes through a process to remove moisture from food by going through a dryer at -40°F.  It has all the benefits of real fruit because it is real fruit!
