Eat well

Hungry? Eat better this very minute!

Deciding to eat better is one thing — doing it is another! What you should know is that eating more healthily isn’t that hard to do. Here are 10 simple steps to eating better right now.

  • Eat breakfast every morning since it may help control your hunger throughout the day. Try cereal and milk, whole grain bread and peanut butter, fruit and low-fat yogurt or a homemade smoothie.
  • Enjoy low-fat yogurt, milk, and cheese. Bonus points if it’s fortified with vitamin D.
  • At the supermarket, reach for whole grain versions of bread, rolls, cereals, rice and pasta rather than your usual white.
  • Snack on a small handful of unsalted nuts or seeds instead of chips.
  • Enjoy raw vegetables or fresh fruit for one snack each day.
  • Include one dark green vegetable (spinach, chard, broccoli, romaine lettuce, Bok Choy) and one orange vegetable (carrots, sweet potato, winter squash) each day.
  • Add a side salad with leafy greens to lunch or dinner.
  • Try a meatless meal featuring beans, legumes or tofu once a week.
  • At least twice each week, make fish the star of your dinner instead of meat or poultry.
  • Order a vegetarian pizza instead of the meat-lover’s version with pepperoni, sausage and double cheese.
