Eating Healthy – TIps and Tricks

Posted by UFMC Pueblo in Company News | 0 comments


Adopting a healthy diet is not always as easy as it sounds. And even harder, is figuring out where to start? As you consider the parade of healthy diets in magazines and cookbooks, consider looking at the following to help you make sure you’re on the right healthy eating tract. Ensure your food:

  • Includes a variety of foods from the major food groups: fruits, vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy products, and lean protein including beans and other legumes, nuts and seeds, and healthy fats
  • Provides guidelines for how much food to choose from each group
  • Includes foods you can find in your local grocery store  — rather than specialty or gourmet store items
  • Fits your tastes, lifestyle and budget

Also consider your health risks. For example, do you have high cholesterol or high blood pressure? If so, be sure to follow a diet that’s low in salt, saturated fat and cholesterol, and high in fruits, vegetables, whole grains and healthy fats. For personalized advice, talk with your doctor or a dietitian.
