These tips are from a site called, Fruits & Veggies More Matters and I thought it is just another good emphasis on how to eat right and what food groups you should be looking at and others to avoid.
Grams, calories, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, protein, daily values, RDAs … the list goes on! For many Americans, sorting out what is considered a carbohydrate or a protein can be complex, let alone determining their daily intake of all the vitamins and minerals! Creating a healthy eating plan doesn’t have to be complicated! Instead of worrying about the minor details, focus on filling half your plate with fruits and veggies for every meal and snack, and keep this in mind …
- Emphasize fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and fat-free or low-fat milk and milk products.
- Include lean meats, poultry, fish, beans, eggs, and nuts.
- Eat a diet that’s low in saturated fats, trans fats, cholesterol, salt (sodium), and added sugars.
- Stay within your daily calorie needs.
