Contra Costa County Schools Insurance Group’s Health Benefits Program

MARCH HARMONY FOR HEALTH

 

March is Nutrition Month 

Your food choices each day affect your health — how you feel today, tomorrow, and in the future.  Good nutrition is an important part of leading a healthy lifestyle.  Combined with physical activity, your diet can help you reach and maintain a healthy weight, reduce your risk of chronic diseases, like heart disease and cancer, and promote your overall health.

And good nutrition isn’t just for adults.  Good and bad habits start early.  Today, too many children are getting adult conditions like diabetes and high blood pressure.  Did you know nearly 1 in 3 children in America is overweight or obese?  And 1 in 3 children born in 2000 or later will suffer from type 2 diabetes at some point in their lives while others will face chronic obesity-related health problems like heart disease, high blood pressure, cancer, and asthma.  That’s why it’s important to make healthy eating and exercise part of your family’s lifestyle.  Model and promote healthy habits that will last your children a lifetime.

The link between good nutrition and healthy weight, reduced chronic disease risk, and overall health is too important to ignore.  By taking steps to eat healthy, you'll be on your way to getting the nutrients your body needs to stay healthy, active, and strong.  As with physical activity, making small changes in your diet can go a long way, and it's easier than you think.

March Thrive Recipe   

If you forgot to make a reservation for dinner or you’d rather stay home for a cozy evening – no problem.  I’ve got you covered.  This month’s recipe, Lemon Rosemary Pork Chops or Chicken Over Butternut Squash Puree is an excellent recipe to try at home.  The best part of the preparation of this meal is that you can easily work on the various components simultaneously, as the preparation for the protein requires some resting time.  Another bonus – the meat and vegetables also cook at the same temperature!  The vegetables complement the flavor profile of the meat, and it’s all tied together with a delicious puree.  So, who’s ready for a winner, winner, pork or chicken dinner?
