Healthy living is one of my favorite topics to discuss. As a registered dietitian, I am always talking about food, fitness and how to be healthy. I could talk about these topics all day (and do!). There are so many different reasons why healthy living is important to me which I want to share with all of you!
3. To be healthy for my daughter- My daughter is 9 months old now and is getting more and more active. She is taking steps, crawling everywhere and pulling herself up. In no time, she will be running all around, climbing up the stairs and more. Therefore, I want to be in great health so that I can run along with her. I don't want to be lagging behind! Also, she is getting heavier so I lift weights so that I can carry her without issue. I want to live to be 100+ and want to be healthy all along the way!

5. To prevent obesity- According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 1/3 of U.S. adults are obese and 17% of children are obese. This is associated with many health risks including heart disease, hypertension, type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis and some types of cancer. By eating right, you can help reduce your risk. Focus on antioxidant rich fruits and vegetables and whole grains. Limit saturated fats, eliminate trans-fats and keep cholesterol intake within recommended limits. Reduce added sugars and refined grains. I am to get some form of exercise in everyday. This can include simple exercises such as walking or some jumping jacks and squats.
Align Probiotics. Probiotics can be beneficial to restore the healthy bacteria in your body and improve digestion. Align Probiotics helps maintain your digestive system’s natural balance*. I like taking a probiotic when I am sick especially and when I am having any digestive issues.
