This summer, make sure to take care of your physical, mental, social and nutritional health. For the month of August, The Chamber has been suggesting ways to take healthier steps during these unique times.
Being conscious of what you eat is an essential part of keeping your body and mind healthy. Learning ways to prepare healthy meals can create good habits for the rest of the year.
The Government of Canada has created a guide for healthy eating during the COVID-19 pandemic. This guide provides recipe suggestions, meal planning resources and information on ways to eat better while saving money. Interested in receiving personalized advice? Nutritionists can be included in your Chamber Group Insurance Plan.
When picking up groceries, keep the Canadian Food Guide in mind while preparing meals — have plenty of veggies and fruits, eat protein such as meat and nuts, choose whole-grain pasta and rice, and make water your drink of choice.
If you’re missing a key vitamin or nutrient from your diet, consider purchasing immune boosting supplements from a Chamber member.
And if you don't feel like cooking, enjoy dinner at a Chamber Member Patio. Go while the sun is shining and choose healthy options on the menu. Or order takeout from a local restaurant to enjoy a delicious meal at home.
