Working Nutrition Into Every Day Life

Eating healthy is not always easy, but there are ways to work nutrition into everyday life. Lubbock Dietician, Gina Jarman, spent the Saturday talking to people about nutrition do's and dont's at the Covenant Family Health Care Center.

She says it is important to get as many vitamins and minerals as you can from your diet, but taking multi-vitamins is also recommended. There is such a thing as "good fat." Omega 3 fatty acids are found in salmon, and herring. That type of fat actually helps reduce the risk of chronic health conditions. Jarman also talked about the downside to taking dietary supplements.

"The most common misconception is that you can get everything you need from one pill. All the vitamins and nutrients a body has to have can not come from just taking one little pill."

Jarman says if you are taking medication or you are not sure whether certain vitamins or foods are good for you, talk to your doctor.
