Healthy Eating Makes a Happier and Stronger You

When it comes to eating well, taking small steps can make a big difference.

For starters, try these five tips:

1. Eat more fruits and vegetables. They taste great, are low in calories and fat and can easily be incorporated into any meal or snack. Plus, there are so many different kinds, you’ll never get bored. Try to eat fruit that hasn’t been processed (for example, a peach is lower in calories and sugar than canned peaches or a pre-packaged fruit cup) and focus on roasted or steamed green veggies.
