June is Men's Health Month

Nutrition is one of the top three lifestyle factors that support good health.  This month is Men's Health Month and the perfect time to take a fresh look at meals and snacks to promote better health. 

When it comes to nutrition, focus on variety for balance.  Include different colors of fruits and veggies, different grains including whole grains, different types of protein, and dairy because men need calcium too!

For protein, don't forget the plant-based options including beans, nuts, and seeds.  Plant-based proteins are lower in fats and higher in fiber which promote heart health and gut health compared to many animal proteins. A great option is Planters NUT-trition!  What's NUT-rition, you ask? Well, it's simple. Just some nuts, a touch of sea salt, maybe some fruit, carefully mixed together to help give you nutrition you need. Yep. That's pretty much it. Oh, wait. One more thing. It's delicious. The nuts in this blend provide a good source of 6 vitamins and minerals.

Additionally, nuts contain protein and healthy fat which helps to keep you feeling full and energized.  Nuts are also great since they are convenient for on-the-go and can be incorporated into many meals adding nutrition, flavor, and crunchy texture.  Overall, consuming nuts is associated with more nutritious diets and overall better health. 

When shopping our store, checkout the varieties of Planters NUT-trition and find your new favorite snack.  Choosing nuts is a healthy choice that everyone can feel good about!

*Unless allergic to nuts.  If allergic, seeds are the next best choice.
