eating for health
Staying healthy can be a challenge, but lifestyle changes like eating healthfully
and being physically active can help lower your risk for heart disease and other
One way to eat a healthy diet is to choose a variety of foods. Variety matters
because no food has all the nutrients that your heart and the rest of your body
need. A healthy eating plan is one that:
• Emphasizes fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and fat-free or low-fat milk
and milk products
• Includes lean meats, poultry, fish, beans, eggs, and nuts
• Is low in saturated fat, trans fat, cholesterol, sodium, and added sugars
Also, think about what you drink—choose nonalcoholic, low/no-calorie options
such as water, skim milk, iced tea, club soda, diet soda, and sparkling beverages
as a substitute for regular, sweetened beverages.
When it comes to eating healthfully, portion size also matters. The recipes in this
cookbook are designed to give you a satisfying portion, while helping you stay
within your calorie limits.
