Soccer moms and dads out there know it is tough to be in two places at once and it is even tougher to eat healthy on the run. As part of National Nutrition Awareness Month, we want to share some tips for how to make the right choices on the go, because diet and exercise are key to healthy bones and joints.
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics put together a list of 30 tips. Here are our 10 favorites:
- Pull the “pack-mule.” Make sure your purse, briefcase or backpack is always packed with snacks-on-the-go, such as: peanut butter and crackers, granola bars, a piece of fresh fruit or trail mix.
- Plan ahead and consider what options will be available. Choose carryout restaurants with variety to give yourself a better chance of picking a healthy meal.
- Practice portion control by ordering the regular or child-sized meal. The words “Biggie Size” are not your friend.
- Be picky when you order. It is okay to ask for a side salad instead of French fries or to order light mayo or sauces on the side.
- Limit alcohol consumption as it not only impairs your thinking and motor skills but also increases appetite.
- Add as many veggies as you want. Tomato, lettuce, peppers or other vegetables can add nutritional value to your sandwich.
- Share a regular order with a friend if you indulge in unhealthy food like French fries.
- Be weary of jumbo-sized breakfast foods like muffins and bagels. They can often contain more than twice the fat and calories of the regular size.
- Keep healthy lunch options in your desk, such as fruit, peanut butter, soup, or tuna.
- Plan your meals and track your food intake throughout the day. If a fast-food dinner is on the horizon, have a lighter lunch.

Congratulations to our very own Dr. Karl Saunders. The president of Orthopaedic Associates of Zanesville received the Genesis P.R.I.D.E. award for “Innovation/Inspiration” this week. As a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon, Dr. Saunders has more than 30 years of experience, but continues to live on the cutting-edge of the industry. He brought the anterior approach to total hip replacement to Zanesville, allowing patients to have fewer limitations in mobility. This technique decreases patients’ pain and rehabilitation time, while lowering the possibility for complications and the need for narcotics.
Dr. Saunders represents innovation through his commitment to high-quality orthopaedic surgery care, representing the Genesis HealthCare System mission: to provide comprehensive, compassionate health care. Dr. Saunders often participates in educational events for members of the community and takes the time to thoroughly answer questions expressed by referring physicians, patients and their family members.
Dr. Saunders was also instrumental in the planning stages of EPIC, developing its orthopaedic orders and protocols as an enthusiastic leader. He continues to look for ways to improve the process and bring the highest quality of care to orthopaedic patients. Congratulations to Dr. Saunders on this prestigious honor!
