We’ve Made Monitoring Your Nutrition Easier

March 7, 2019

Eating healthy is important, but eating right can mean a big lifestyle change for many people. There’s no one special diet that works for everyone, so it’s really important to follow a healthful eating plan. You’ll achieve success if you eat in moderation, enjoy a good balance of tasty foods and make adjustments to fit your unique lifestyle.

National Nutrition Month is campaign created by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics to educate and inform others about making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits. At Sipipa, we care about healthy food, and that’s why we provide Nutrition Data on all our meals.

If you visit https://sipipa.com/menu, you can click on any item on the menu and scroll down to see the list of ingredients, a gallery of photos of the dish, all the nutrition facts and also allergen info. If you change the size or portion of a food, the nutrition facts will be updated with your new choice. And if you create your own food or modify it, you can see nutrition facts for that as well.

For example, our Quinoa & Kale Salad was 417 calories, 18 grams of fat, 46 total grams of carbohydrates and 13 grams of protein. It also includes 249% of your total recommended daily amount of Vitamin A, and 136% of Vitamin C.           

In honor of National Nutrition Month, here are five facts about healthy eating habits:

  1. Portion sizes have increased over the years, and the amount of food that many people consume in one sitting may actually be several servings. This is why it’s really important to read the new Nutrition Facts Labels that reflect the larger portion size and help you determine the total amount of calories (and other nutrients) being consumed per serving.
  • The amount of calories you need every day depends on a person’s age, gender, height, weight and activity level.
  • Eating too many calories from any type of food (not just carbs or fatty foods) can result in weight gain.
  • Doing some amount of physical activity is better than being sedentary and doing nothing at all. So even if you just go for a short walk, get up and move around.
  • Foods and drinks with naturally occurring sugars, such as fruit, milk and yogurt can contain important nutrients. In comparison, items with added sugars, such as desserts and sodas, are often empty calories.
