3 Quick Ways to Eat Healthy
Maintaining good nutrition is not just about what you eat, it's also about how you eat. These 3 tips can help you stay on track.
- Eat a balanced breakfast. Try whole-grain cereal with milk, yogurt with fruit and berries, or a tortilla with peanut butter and sliced banana.
- Snack wisely. You can boost your energy between meals—and get important vitamins and minerals—when you plot out your snacking choices. The best snacks combine 2 or more food groups, such as protein, grains, and healthy fats. Single-serve plain yogurt cups with fruit slices or vegetables with low-fat cottage cheese are 2 nutritious options.
- Be prepared for cravings. Keep healthy, portable foods at the ready. Some examples are single-serve containers of peanut butter and whole-grain crackers, sturdier fresh fruit (apples, oranges, bananas), and pre-portioned bags of nuts or trail mix.
