March is National Nutrition Month

sweettreatsafm4This month is all about eating right and educating more people on just how easy and tasty it can be to make better food choices each day for ourselves and our families. This special educational month was created by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics to call attention to the need of eating better and enjoying a healthy lifestyle.

This year’s theme is “Enjoy the Taste of Eating Right.” We want to help you discover and enjoy that theme as well as make it convenient for you to gift loved ones with something that is healthy and reminds them just how much you care for them.nutritionF1

Fresh and Seasonal Fruit Baskets

One of the delicious ways we can do that for you is through our gourmet fruit baskets that are overflowing with juicy seasonal fruit from California and around the world. These baskets can include such healthy delights as apples, bears, California naval oranges, kiwi fruit, pineapples, California grapes and so much more.

These fresh fruit gift baskets come in various sizes or can be combined with gourmet food items and then shipped anywhere in Long Beach or the surrounding communities.

Fruit Desserts

Even dessert can be a healthy choice when it is topped with delicious fruit. Our online bakery features some fruit-themed treats. The first choice is a Mixed Fruit Tart, which has a butter cookie crust layered with rich pastry cream and topped with assorted fresh fruit that has been sealed with an apricot glaze.StrawberryMousseAthinlayerofstripedCake13081784800goodieslb2

Then there is the Strawberry Mouse Cake that is laden with strawberry sauce and fresh strawberries. This is a true California favorite as many of the strawberries come from local strawberry farms in Southern California.

Other Ideas

While the month celebrates nutrition, it still is part of a push for an overall healthy lifestyle so here are some other ideas you can consider:

  • Gourmet gift basket with fruit, healthy snacks, and an indoor green plant or blooming plant;
  • A flower arrangement, bouquet, or blooming basket; and
  • Balloons and a greeting card.

Whatever you choose let your recipient know that you want them to be healthy and are celebrating their efforts to date. Eating better helps reduce health-related problems and helps extend lives. In the end, that’s what we all want and enjoy!
