Tips to Keep You Healthy

Tips to Keep You Healthy

There is so much media attention being given to healthy eating these days. There are lots of easy ways to improve our eating habits.
Switch from tuna to salmon. Salmon has more healthy omega-3 fats than canned tuna.
Blueberries are a powerhouse of antioxidants. Since they are now in season, enjoy them on your cereal, a topper for ice cream or just as is for a great snack.
Nuts and seeds are greater toppers for salads. Croutons are typically made from salty white all-purpose flour which has little nutritional value.
Cook with canola or olive oil. Both of these oils are rich in monounsaturated fat.
Look for a set of ramekins that hold just one half cup. Use them to serve frozen yogurt, ice cream or other sweets. This is a great way to control portion sizes.
Try a new vegetable. There are many great vegetables being sold at local farmers markets. The good news is that people who eat a wide variety of vegetables tend to be thinner. Many people limit their vegetable consumption to iceberg lettuce, potatoes, onions, and canned tomatoes.
Freeze summer fruits for use in smoothies. Blending frozen fruit with yogurt and milk is a great option for a nutritious, tasty treat.
