On Tuesday, September 19, PacificSource will participate in the American Diabetes Association’s National Healthy Lunch Day. We are encouraging all of our employees to make healthy choices during their lunchtime. Afterall, having a fulfilling and healthy lunch will help you perform better throughout your work or school day!
Why is National Healthy Lunch Day so important? Most of us are uncertain about what’s best to eat, what’s healthful and what’s not. Often our food choices are full of calories, yet lack the vitamins and minerals that we need for energy and to feel our best. The Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee states “Four of the top ten leading causes of death are chronic illness demonstrably linked to nutrition: heart disease, certain cancers, stroke, and diabetes.” Our goal is to promote good nutrition as part of a healthy lifestyle and help everyone make better food choices. To start, let’s do lunch—a healthy lunch.
