Eat Well ~ We all know the importance of eating healthy, yet how many of you make the conscious effort to do so? Let’s all commit to eating healthier this month. Our Small Things for the month of March is to, Eat Well. Let's increase the amount of water we drink. Add in more fruits and vegetables and reduce our consumption of sugar, caffeine and processed foods.
There’s so many Small Things you can do each day to eat more of the good stuff and less of the not-so-good stuff. You might want to try not buying a muffin or breakfast sandwich with your morning coffee. Or, committing to no take-out or ordering in during the weekdays. Instead, save eating out for a special treat on the weekends only.
An easy way to add more fruits and veggies into your diet is to enjoy a daily smoothie. You could also commit to eating a salad for one of your meals each day. Just beware of what you’re topping that salad with! Most salad dressings, particularly store-bought ones, are loaded with sodium, sugar and other unhealthy ingredients that take away from the intention of why you’re eating a salad in the first place. If you aren’t already carrying a reusable water bottle with you wherever you go, now is good time to start. You’re more likely to drink more water if it’s right there beside you.
Committing to Small Things can make a huge difference in your life, and in this case, your health. Commit to at least 2 things that feel achievable and will help you to Eat Well this month.

Or, perhaps you’ll feel inspired by someone’s comment.
There is significant power in what we do, no matter how small.
