Wellness news: Healthy eating tips from Kaiser

Mar 4, 2019

Overwhelmed by conflicting nutrition and diet advice? The truth is, eating healthy isn't hard — and you don't have to live on salads, buy expensive supplements, or swear off snacks forever. Small healthy changes can make a big difference over time.

Eat in Season: In-season fruits and veggies are at peak flavor, nutrition and supply. Seasonal eating is typically more affordable and sustainable — and makes it easy and delicious to get more fresh produce onto your plate.

DIY: Cook at home to be the master of your own healthy destiny. By controlling fat, sugar and salt, home cooks tend to eat healthier than people who eat out more often — even when they're not trying to change their eating habits.

Expand your horizons: Healthy eating doesn't have to be bland. Experiment with herbs and spices for high-impact, low-calorie flavor. Or try nutritious twists on foods you love — like spaghetti with zucchini noodles, or taco lettuce wraps.
