Healthier Food Choices

A healthier alternative to giving into your sweet tooth is munching on some grapes, pineapple, cherries or berries. You can also try raisins or cranberries and Sugarless candy.

If you feel guilty giving in, make sure you have plenty of healthy, sweet snacks in your refrerator and cabinets. This will make it easier for you to make a healthier choice.

The food choices you make, can affect your health. Improving our health can be as simple as adding a variety of grains, fruit and vegetables to our diet. Maintaining a diet that is low in saturated fat, trans fat and cholesterol. Your beverage choice should be water or low sugar and sodium content.

We can control our waistline and our health by monitoring our portion size. Do you still 'supersize'? If you must eat fast food, you can still be in control. Eat smaller hamburgers or chicken sandwiches and order your salad dressing on the side. Order fruit, low fat milk or 100% fruit juice...don't forget, you can pick water!

Tips:

*Eat BEFORE going grocery shopping

*Downsize your meal portions

*Eat s l o w l y, so your brain gets the message that your stomach is full before you overeat

*When dining out, eat half your meal and split your dessert

*If available on the menu, pick the small or medium portion

As always, good advice! We are what we eat - garbage in, garbage out - etc. I can't expect my "engine" to have peak performance if I put kool aide in the tank!
