As March is nutrition month here at Burnalong, we wanted to provide some healthy, easy, and yummy recipes to help you plan your meals and amp up your nutrition.
While we might all recognize nutrition is important, it can be easy to forget what good nutrition can impact. According to the WHO, nutrition is related to stronger immune systems and a lower risk of chronic conditions such as diabetes or cardiovascular disease. It can also impact how long you live.
Though many people within the US have easy access to nutritious foods, did you know that less than one in 10 US children and adults get the daily recommended amounts of vegetables? Less than one in seven adults eat enough fruit.
Burnalong is here to support good nutrition, healthy eating habits, and holistic health. To supercharge your meal planning, we’ve curated recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and two snacks. Each one can be made with some simple modifications if you are trying to avoid certain ingredients too.
