In honor of National Nutrition Month, here are some quick and healthy meal ideas to suit your busy, active lifestyle.

Every March, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics sponsors National Nutrition Month, an educational campaign to help people make informed food choices. This year's theme is "Bite into a Healthy Lifestyle," which encourages people to consume fewer calories and get daily exercise to maintain a healthy weight — efforts that can seem impossible with a fast-paced, jam-packed lifestyle.

If you're like most busy folks, you spend part of your day eating on the run or grabbing something quickly from one activity to the next. Finding healthy, fast and great-tasting foods to fuel your active lifestyle can be a challenge. But there are smart choices out there — you just need to know where to look.

dailyRx News Reporter Rachelle Grossman spoke with Adrien Paczosa, RD, a dietitian practicing in Austin, TX, who shared some ideas for quick and healthy bites on the go.
