Celebrate the American Heart Association’s Eat Smart Day, held on the first Wednesday of November, with a compilation of healthy recipes for the entire day – from breakfast to dessert.
What is Eat Smart Day?
Established in 2009 by the American Heart Association, Eat Smart Day is dedicated to the importance of making healthy food choices. It also marks the official start of Eat Smart Month.
Eating healthy, nutritional food is an important part of your overall wellbeing. A well-balanced diet can also prevent health complications such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and certain cancers.
In orthopedics, a healthy diet that includes Vitamin D, fruits and vegetables, and vitamin C may prevent inflammation, a major factor in rheumatoid arthritis.
How to Observe Eat Smart Day
Unlike the name implies, Eat Smart Day is not just about eating healthy food for one day (or one month!). Rather, it is the start of a long-term commitment to healthier eating by making small changes to your diet over time.
Committing to healthier eating now can also help you maintain a healthy diet during the upcoming holidays.
