National Eating Healthy Day is November 4

National Healthy Eating Day

Today is “Move! Monday” here at Walkingspree and Friday’s are all about Eating Smart with our Eat Smart blog posts.   But this Monday we wanted to make sure that everyone is aware that Wednesday November 4, 2015 is National Eating Healthy Day.

The American Heart Association sponsors this special day in the United States.  Every year, millions of health minded or trying to be health minded people make a pledge and join together and work towards living a healthier life by making healthier eating choices.

You can celebrate this day in your workplace, school, community or family.   Have fun with it and forward this post to your friends so you can spread the word and share ideas!

Here’s a few tips from the American Heart Association:

  • Set a goal or make a pledge to commit to a healthier lifestyle. Post your goal on your fridge or bathroom mirror as a daily reminder of your commitment.
  • Challenge your family, friends and co-workers to join you and set their own goals.
  • Host a heart-healthy dinner party, cooking demonstration or recipe tasting. Visit for resources.
  • Visit a farmers’ market to learn more about the options for purchasing affordable fruits and vegetables in your area.
  • Provide a healthy snack for co-workers, your child’s classroom or a nearby community center.
  • If you or a loved one need help changing your diet, make an appointment with a dietitian or nutritionist.
  • Commit to get fit and participate in the Heart Walk. Ask family and friends to join you. You’ll have fun and raise funds to save lives from two of America’s leading killers — heart disease and stroke. Find details for your local event at

The bottom line? Eating healthier is a great way to help prevent disease and many other health issues.  For example, did you know that more than two-thirds of American adults and one in three children and teens are overweight or obese? This puts them at risk for heart disease and stroke as well as many other chronic illnesses and conditions. Eating healthier is an important way to help maintain a healthy weight and prevent disease.
