March is National Nutrition Month and there is no better way to nutritional wellness than taking steps to adopt a plant-based diet.
We know and understand that the world of nutrition can be quite confusing. One expert will say one thing and the next will say the exact opposite. Fortunately, there is much science to support the plant based diet. When you really start to dig into it, it becomes quite difficult to turn a blind eye.
Here are some documentaries to get you started in understanding why a plant-based diet is so critical for your health.

- What the Health
Eating a plant-based diet is delicious, nutritious and environmentally friendly. Although there is a learning curve, it does not have to be difficult. Simply begin by increasing your intake of fruits, vegetables, non-glutinous whole grains and legumes. This will easily begin the process of crowding out some of the animal protein and processed foods in the diet.

We’re losing an hour soon for spring, even though Mother Nature seems to be set on frigid weather. Does that hour mean bad things for your health? Sleep deprivation can result in systemic dysfunction, including decreased mental and physical performance, increased anxiety, and all the symptoms associated with it.
We gathered a few resources to help you beat the clock.
Avoid caffeine or products that boost energy levels, like nut products and vegetables high in B vitamins.
Reduce exposure to electronics. There is plenty of research available showing the harmful effects of blue light from electronics.
Wind down with yoga. Start your routine a little earlier and add gentle yoga stretches to help guide you to sleeping well. Try the locust pose, head of the knee pose, or bridge pose.
Mindfulness techniques. We’re always fans of mindfulness. Find tips here: http://bit.ly/2zSpOsI
