What do we have to do to eat healthy? Here are the facts that I found:
  • Use the MyPlate picture to help you when you fill your plate for each meal.
  • Fill your plate at any given meal with more vegetables, fruits, and whole grains, which naturally have more nutrients.
  • Skip add-ons like batters, breading, and butter, and choose sauces and dressings wisely, like vinaigrettes made with healthy olive oil instead of full-fat dressings.
  • Opt for a baked potato instead of French fries, grilled chicken instead of fried, brown rice instead of white rice, and non-fat milk instead of whole milk or soda.
  • Eat fewer solid fats like high fat meats, butter, lard, cream and eat fewer foods with lots of sugar. Eat fruits and veggies for snacks.  
  • Eat more fish.
