MHLbannersmallMarch is National Nutrition Month so
you'll find good information to help
you tune-up your diet.

If you ever wonder why nutritionists focus on fiber you'll find some good reasons to include it in your diet, as well as what foods can help you in your quest. You'll also be reminded about the upcoming May 4th Annual 5K by the Bay and be provided with some very practical ideas on how to feel good about participating. In addition, find out more about why it's so important to eat breakfast fairly soon after you get up – and get a tip in the form of a recipe from a fellow employee to make it easier. You'll also learn something interesting about body-only exercise. All this plus the inside story on how the famous food pyramid became the food plate.
