Proper Nutrition

Looking for an excuse to find a new restaurant to enjoy, or simply wanting a night out? Well, Restaurant Week has returned to Lancaster, and you still have time to check out the cool places being highlighted in this seven-day event that began Monday, March 24, and will end Sunday, March 30. All of the participating restaurants have special menu packages available that let you sample their best without breaking the bank. This can also help you find nice, local locations that offer great nutrition for feet.

Nutrition for feet? Nutrition really does make a difference in foot health. The right foods can encourage good circulation, build stronger bones and muscles, fight inflammation, and limit complications from problems like diabetes. You need ample amounts of the right vitamins, minerals, proteins, healthy fats, and sugars. Too much or not enough of any one nutrient can negatively impact your lower limbs—and your overall body as well.

As you explore the Lancaster area restaurants, choose menu selections with vegetables, fruits, lean meats, and dairy products. Fatty fish like salmon have important omega-3 compounds. Green veggies are packed with great nutrients. Milk, yogurt, and cheese have calcium and vitamin D, which is important for bone health. On the other hand, avoid foods that are high in salt, saturated fats, and sugars. Salty snacks, red meats, refined grains like white wheat and pasta, and sugary sweets are loaded with substances that can negatively impact your body’s functions.

Eating right and focusing on nutrition for feet can help you improve your overall health and discover new foods that are good for your body as a whole. Take some time this Restaurant Week to look for foot-friendly foods on the menus.
