Healthy eating

3 simple ways to improve your eating habits

Good nutrition is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. But even when you are trying to eat a healthy diet, it can be confusing trying to sort through all of the information available about nutrition and food choices.

Experts claim the healthiest diets are rich in fruits and vegetables, because these foods are full of healthful nutrients and fiber. Eat fruits and veggies in a variety of colors – red, orange, yellow, purple, green and white.

Tips for healthier eating 

  1. Go for more fruits and veggies, choose less meat and fat.
  2. Fill half of your plate with fruits and vegetables. Make at least half your grains "whole grains."
  3. Try marinades or dressings made with herbs and olive oil (a heart-healthy fat) as swaps for artery-clogging creamy sauces and dressings.
