The best way to give your body the balanced nutrition it needs is by eating a variety of nutrient- packed foods every day. Just be sure to stay within your daily calorie needs. 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 fats, trans fats, cholesterol, salt (sodium), and added sugars. DON'T GIVE IN WHEN YOU EAT OUT AND ARE ON THE GO It's important to make smart food choices and watch portion sizes wherever you are—at the grocery store, at work, in your favorite restaurant, or running errands. Try these tips: • At the store, plan ahead by buying a variety of nutrient-rich foods for meals and snacks throughout the week. • When grabbing lunch, have a sandwich on whole- grain bread and choose low-fat/fat-free milk, water, or other drinks without added sugars. • In a restaurant, opt for steamed, grilled, or broiled dishes instead of those that are fried or sautéed. • On a long commute or shopping trip, pack some fresh fruit, cut-up vegetables, string cheese sticks, or a handful of unsalted nuts—to help you avoid impulsive, less healthful snack choices.
