Everything that you put into your body is important. Each meal is a part of your healthy lifestyle. Now that you know what to eat, here are some tips on how to do it!
Make your plate half fruits and half veggies
Typically the more vibrant the color of the fruit and vegetable, the more nutrients they contain, so try deep red peppers or berries, bright oranges or sweet potatoes, or dark green broccoli, pears or kiwi.
Fruit makes a sweet and healthy dessert! It can be enjoyed fresh, frozen, dried or canned- but watch for added sugary syrups or things that taste like fruit, but don’t contain the real thing.
Experiment with veggies
You can sneak veggies into other dishes, like adding them to sandwiches. You can also try them in different ways, like raw, steamed or roasted. Just remember to watch out for heavy and creamy sauces that could add fat.
Don’t limit your proteins
Try different forms of protein, including seeds and nuts, eggs, beans and even peas. When eating protein, be sure to keep it lean.
