Wellness News: Inspiring ways to eat smart

Mar 10, 2020

Eating healthy doesn’t have to be hard—and you don’t have to live on salad, buy expensive vitamins or swear off snacking. Your own nutrition intuition can lead you in the right direction.

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

DIY: Instead of ordering in, try cooking at home.  By controlling fat, sugar and salt content, home cooks tend to eat healthier than people who eat out often—even when they’re not trying to.

Expand your horizons: Healthy eating doesn’t have to be boring. Experiment with herbs and spices for high-impact, low-calorie flavor. Try nutritious twists on foods you love, like zucchini spaghetti with meatballs or taco lettuce wraps.
