Eat a rainbow
Dedicate half your plate at meals to fruits and vegetables. Fruits, vegetables (and grains) offer important vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals. Most have little fat and no cholesterol. They also contain fiber to help with digestion and prevent constipation. Research shows that eating a diet high in fruits and vegetables may help lower cholesterol and blood sugar and prevent heart disease.
Increase plant foods
Research suggests that plant-based diets may help prevent overweight and obesity. Doctors associate obesity with many diseases. According to some studies, including more plant foods in the diet could reduce the risk of developing diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
Cut off salt
Reduce your sodium (salt intake). Cut down on using canned, packaged, and frozen processed foods. If you are buying these items, use the Nutrition Facts label to choose lower sodium versions of foods. High-sodium restaurant meals are also another significant source of added salt to one’s diet.
Eat whole grains
Foods made from whole grains are a significant source of energy and fiber. Whole grains contain nutrients such as B vitamins, iron, and fiber. These nutrients are essential for body functions that include carrying oxygen in the blood, regulating the immune system, and balancing blood sugar. Learn to read food labels so you can identify which grains are truly whole grains.
