Healthy Eating Tips

Changing your diet and habits is not always easy. These tips can help you as you begin to change what and how you eat:

Start slowly

Start with one small change. As you become more comfortable, add in more changes.

Focus on small changes

Add an extra piece of fruit to your day or include a serving of vegetables at dinner. Try cooking at home or making a new recipe.

Work on making half of your grains whole grains

Try switching from buying white bread to whole wheat bread. Try whole wheat pasta or brown rice.

Switch from whole milk to 1% or skim milk

These milks have all the benefits of whole milk without all the fat.

Eat in-season produce

In-season fruits and vegetables are usually less expensive. They often have a better flavor, too!

Change up your source of protein

Lean meat, seafood, nuts, eggs, and beans are all good sources of protein. Try different ones throughout the week.

Pay attention to portion sizes and fullness levels

Start with a small portion and if you are still hungry, you can always go back for more. Eating slowly will help you feel when you have had enough.

Drink enough water

Staying hydrated helps your body to feel good. Drinking water can also stop you from mindless eating.

Snack wisely

Fruit, vegetables, and nuts all make great snacks. Eat them together or with a small portion of another food group to keep from becoming too hungry.
