Last week your goal was to try eating 5 or more servings of fruits and vegetables each day. By doing this you are getting more fiber in your diet and that is a good thing because we benefit from fiber in so many ways! This week let’s continue to strive for 5 or more fruits and vegetables, but let’s also drink 48 ounces of water or more each day! Water plays an important role in the functioning of your body:

  • Moistens tissues
  • Regulates body temperature
  • Lubricates joints
  • Helps flush out waste
  • Carries Nutrients to cells
  • Protects organs

Water is a great way to satisfy thirst because it is calorie-free & inexpensive! So replace those sugary drinks with water during week 2 of National Nutrition Month (March 8-14), and drink 48 ounces or more of water each day in addition to eating 5 or more fruit & vegetable servings/day!
