to help you stay healthier, longer.
It is recommended that persons consume at least 5 servings of fruits and or vegetables a day. This might mean 2 servings of fruit and 3 servings of vegetable.
Protein is essential for building and repairing muscle. Choose lean or low-fat cuts of beef or pork, and skinless chicken or turkey. Get your protein from seafood twice a week. Quality protein sources come from plant based foods, too.
Limit foods high in saturated fat, and avoid foods with trans fat. Plant oils, nuts, and fish are the healthiest sources.
We didn't say no carbs. Look for whole grain products; they're your best bet.
Fruits and vegetables that are brighter and deeper in colour contain higher concentrations of the vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that are essential to a healthy way of life.
Know the difference between good carbs and bad carbs. Pay attention to the labels on your food — just because it says organic on the front doesn't mean it's necessarily your best option.
Planning not only meals, but also snacks, is the most advantageous tactic to eating healthy. Since extra calories, and most often the non-nutritious calories, come from snacking throughout the day and evening hours, be prepared for these times.
Foods like fat-free and low-fat milk, cheese, yogurt, and fortified soy beverages (soymilk) help to build and maintain strong bones needed for everyday activities.
Take the skin off chicken and trim the white fat off any meat. Also, try to avoid eating too many processed meats such as sausages and burgers (the fat's not visible from the outside, but it's certainly there).
Write a shopping list and stick to it — never shop when you're hungry as this may lead to poor choices at the grocery store.
