Celebrating National Nutrition Month

Sherene Chou | March 1, 2022

Celebrate flavors from around the world and embrace a diversity of cultures and cuisines with this year’s theme: Celebrate a World of Flavors! National Nutrition Month kicks off with an annual campaign by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, inviting you to learn more about building healthy habits. This year’s theme highlights the importance that all cultures have healthy foods that you can enjoy all year long.

As a registered dietitian, it’s important for me to share nutritious, accessible meals and snacks that are packed with flavor. One of the keys to helping people build and maintain successful habits is to incorporate traditional, cultural foods that they love. It is a way to honor the diversity of our communities and nourish our bodies.

Here are some simple tips to get you started!

  1. Eat a variety of nutritious foods. Enjoy your favorite cultural foods that feature all food groups, which include grains, protein, fruits, and veggies.
  2. Find a dietitian to help you meet your personal health goals. If you’re struggling to meet your goals, seek nutrition experts. They can help you incorporate your traditions and values to set you up for success.
  3. Plan your meals and snacks. Make a plan for the week to help keep you on track. Grocery lists and accessible pantry staples can help make things easier. Here are our Top 10 Pantry Staples.
  4. Create tasty foods at home. Try new flavors and foods from around the world, expand your palate, and whenever possible, enjoy meals with friends and family.

Join us as we Celebrate a World of Flavors! Here are some of our favorite flavor-packed recipes that are chef-crafted and dietitian-approved.

We love seeing what you whip up in the kitchen. Share your creations with us on social at @nutribullet. Happy National Nutrition Month!
