What to Eat

Eat at least five servings of fruits and vegetables per day and preferably 5 fruits and 5 vegetables in any combination throughout the day.

A healthy lunch

It’s easier than you think…

  • Juices count
  • A snack of raisins counts
  • Salad
  • Potato
  • Bananas on your cereal
  • Strawberries for dessert

Try to get most of your protein from skinless chicken, fish or legumes. If you must eat red meat, make sure it’s very lean and eat less — 5 ounces is sufficient.

Keep fat down. Avoid fried foods as much as possible, and lighten up on butter and dressings.

Try something new every week.  Variety is very important.

Of your influence on food the most important is choice.

The next is how you cook it.
