Nutrition Tip:

University is about learning, having fun and having new food experiences.  You may have heard of the freshman 15 referring to weight gain during the first year.  Remember you are in the driver’s seat!  Maintaining good eating habits are important so that you have energy for studying, socializing and athletic activities, for sleeping well and for avoiding colds and coughs that are easily spread.

 Nutrition Tip:  "Best Before" dates on foods are not necessarily indicators of whether a food is safe to eat or not.  "Best Before" dates are chosen by the manufacturer or retailer and indicate how long they would expect the food to have the optimal freshness, taste and nutritional value.  After that date, (for example), your salsa may not taste as good, the chips might not be as crunchy, or there may be less vitamins or bacterial culture (yogurt).  Is food safe to eat past the "Best Before" date?  The answer is complicated.  Factos such as when the product was opened, the content of the product, how it was stored and handled (i.e. correct temperatures, how many hands were in the bowl), plus the health of your own immune system can help you decide.  It is important not to confuse "Best Before" dates with "Expiration Dates".  "Expiration Dates" are required on certain foods and mandated for five types of products that are generally intended for populations with specific and/or prescribed nutritional needs.  These foods should definitely not be eaten beyond their date.

With the 50th anniversary of Earth Day fast approaching in 2020, let us think about global collaboration for the health of our planet.  All living things have an intrinsic value, and each plays a unique role in the complex web of life.  Your action is needed.  Create your own act of green (for example) by reducing your consumption, stop using disposable plastic and reducing food waste!

Nutrition Tip: 

According to Jan Chazen Bays, MD in her book “Mindful Eating- A Guide to Rediscovering a Healthy and Joyful Relationship with Food,” countries that have an abundance of food often have a disharmony with food and eating. In a survey she conducted, she found that Americans worry more about food derive less pleasure from eating than people in any other nation surveyed. She mentioned that other countries associate food with pleasure and Americans associate food with health, yet the United States is far from the healthiest nation. 

Secondly, when food and drink are abundant, it is easy to take them for granted. This makes it easy to stop paying attention to what is on our plate or in our mouth. When we stop paying attention, we stop smelling and tasting and get less of an experience from the meals we eat.

Being grateful for all the choices we have for food on the grocery shelves, those who contribute their time and energy to plant, tend, harvest, package, purchase, and prepare our food can also help increase our appreciation.
