Being healthy is more than a diet- it’s a lifestyle.

Eating a healthy diet is about feeling great, having more energy, improving your health, and boosting your mood. A healthful diet includes a variety of fruits and vegetables of many colors, whole grains and starches, good fats, and lean proteins. Some essential shopping tips may help: Choose products that list whole grains as the first ingredient, select low-fat, lean cuts of meat, choose skim or non-dairy milk (soy, rice, or almond milk), and substitute water for fruit juices, soda, sports and energy drinks, and sweet tea.

Change your eating, change your life

When you cook at home you control the ingredients and restaurant meals are almost always higher in calories and sodium than something you would make yourself. Small changes can make a big difference to your health. Cooking at home provides an activity that can make everyone healthier, happier, and more connected. As if all that weren’t enough, home-cooked meals can also benefit the environment by saving money and reducing our carbon footprint.

Overcoming Portion Distortion

It’s easy to mistake a larger portion as a better value. The amount of food you eat is one of the most important parts of building a healthy eating style. A serving size is a measured amount of food intended to be eaten at one time. A portion size, by contrast, is the amount of food or drink you actually consume in one sitting. Many foods that come as a single portion actually contain multiple servings. Be sure to read your Nutrition Facts Labels. If we can reprogram our brains to see healthy servings sizes, then maybe we won’t be fooled when it comes to being over-served.
