National Nutrition Month Resources to Help Clean Up Your Plate

March is National Nutrition Month and reminder to me as to far our family has come in the world of food and nutrition. We still have some bad habits to kick, but the last few years have brought about a transformation in our kitchen and our health. 

I'm sipping a cup of black coffee as I type this and cringing about how much sugar I would stir in just a year and a half ago. 

My contribution to you for National Nutrition Month this year is to share some of my favorite resources; books, documentaries, blogs and websites, that have helped me clean up my plate, ditch processed food and really focus on nutrition vs. food.
