Tip of the week: How to watch what you eat

Go au naturel. You know to choose whole foods over prepackaged items. But what does that mean? Each food should “exist in nature and have just one primary ingredient.” Ninety percent of the time, whole foods contain more nutrients and less sodium and sugar. If it’s impossible to avoid packaged foods, favor those with “shorter and simpler” ingredients.

Add a side of produce. The USDA recommends around “five to nine servings” of fruit and vegetables a day for the average adult. That might seem daunting, but “sneaking them in” at each meal often helps you reach the advised amount.

Bring snacks. Finding yourself stranded without a healthy snack like granola or fruit is “a surefire way” to end up at the nearest vending machine. Keep snacks handy to prepare for sudden attacks of the munchies.
