Breakfast

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and should be given attention accordingly. A healthy breakfast is the first thing that can help meet your food group needs. If you skip it, you might end up eating more and also disturb the body balance. Eat a nutrient-dense breakfast!

 

Healthy snacks

Snacking can be tricky. You can’t just go for anything that you see in the refrigerator. Keep in hand healthy snacks to eat when on-the-go, such as apple, carrot, salad or whole grain crackers.

 

Meal preparation

Preparation of meals is another thing that you need to pay heed to. When preparing, ensure to include a lot of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, fat-free or low-fat dairy products, and lean protein foods. Make sure you have included all the food groups in the meals.

 

Fruits and veggies

Fruits and veggies are high on nutrition and low on calories. They give you plenty of energy and make you feel full. If you replace high-calorie foods with lower calorie foods, you can still eat larger portions without having an effect on weight. The more the variety, more nutrition.
