Eating healthy is something we all would like to do, however it can sometimes be hard. In order to eat healthy, you must first make the right food choices.
You should consume 6 ounces of grains per day. You can eat 3 ounces of whole grain cereals, breads, rice, crackers, or pasta . You can get an ounce of grains in a single slice of bread, or 1 cup of cereal.
You should eat 2 1/2 cups of vegetables each day. It’s best to start eating more of the dark vegetables, such as broccili and spinach. Carrots and sweet potatoes are good as well. Eating more dry beans such as peas, pinto beans, and even kidney beans is also good.
You should try to eat 2 cups of fruit each day as fruits are very important. Concentrate on eating a variety, such as fresh, frozen, canned, or even dried fruit. You can drink fruit juices as well, although you should use moderation.
Milk is your calcium rich friend. For adults, 3 cups is the ideal goal. For children 2 – 8, with 2 cups being ideal. When choosing milk products, you should strive for fat-free or low-fat. If you don’t like milk or can’t have it, there are lactose free products or other sources of calcium such as fortified foods and beverages.
Meat and beans
Eating 5 ounces a day is the ideal goal, as you should go lean with your protein. When eating meat, always bake it, grill it, or broil it, as this will prevent grease from adding to the equation. You should vary your protein as well, with more fish, beans, peas, and nuts.
By picking your foods wisely and watching what you eat, you’ll better control your lifestyle. Exercise is great as well, and should be included in a healthy eating lifestyle. No matter what your age, eating healthy will help you keep your active lifestyle for years to come and improve your overall health in the long run.
