Daylight Savings time began Sunday, March 9th, and while it may be just the boost you need get re-energized about your health goals, it can also be a tough transition.  Daylight saving time means an earlier than usual wake-up call that can leave you more tired than usual, even with the extra daylight and knowledge that longer, sunnier days are on the way.  Get through the transition and make the most of the extra time with these diet-friendly tips for Daylight Savings Time:
  • Eat an energizing breakfast – Coffee alone doesn’t cut it.  Fruits, oatmeal, whole grain toast, egg whites, Greek yogurt, smoothies and similar nutritious foods will help wake you up and keep you going with sustained energy throughout the morning.
  • Go for a walk – Soak up a little sun, breathe in the fresh air and keep the afternoon yawns in check when you fit in a little extra exercise throughout the day.  Squeeze in extra steps around the building or around the block and remember you have extra sunlight at the end of the day now making it even easier to get out and about before dinner.
  • Sleep easier with these foods – Steer clear of heavy meals as the sun sets, and focus on nutritious foods like fish, whole grains, beans and legumes, which contain B6, a must for melatonin production and restful sleep to help get you back on a refreshing sleep schedule sooner rather than later.

What do you do to make the daylight saving time transition a little easier?  Find more information about nutritious foods that can help keep you energized and healthy here as part of National Nutrition Month.
