Tip of the Day

Make Healthy Choices Daily

Practicing good nutrition and engaging in a healthy lifestyle means making choices. Every day there are ways you can reduce your intake of foods high in fat and calories and replace them with healthier choices.

Try replacing some of the following "not-so-healthy" choices with healthier substitutes:

  • Salad Dressing
    Salad dressing alone can contain half a day's calories and grams of fat. Start ordering dressing on the side, choosing low-fat options and only use what you need.
  • Salad Toppings
    Bacon, cheese or other high-fat toppings can turn any salad unhealthy. Try loading up on vegetables instead.
  • On-the-Go Meals
    Prepackaged lunch options are high in fat, calories and sodium. Take a few extra minutes at night to prepare a sandwich with whole-grain bread.
  • Cooking Methods
    Grill, broil, bake, braise, steam, poach or microwave instead of frying. Sautéing is okay with minimal amounts of oil, or use non-stick spray or fat-free, low-sodium broth.
  • Grains
    Switch out refined grains for whole-grain options such as whole-grain pastas and breads.
