FitTips: 3 Steps to Building a Healthy Meal
Step 1: Load up on FRESH Veggies!
Vegetables and fruits are full of nutrients that support good health. Choose fruits and red, orange, and dark-green vegetables such as tomatoes, sweet potatoes, and broccoli.
Step 2: Add that Lean Protein
Choose protein foods such as lean beef, pork, chicken or turkey, and eggs, nuts, beans, or tofu. Twice a week, make seafood the protein on your plate.
Step 3: Avoid Extra Fat
Using heavy gravies or sauces will add fat and calories to otherwise healthy choices. Try steamed broccoli with a sprinkling of low-fat Parmesan cheese or a squeeze of lemon.
