Do you eat for good nutrition? It means more than simply eating an apple a day. Think in terms of your food choices throughout the day, from breakfast to bedtime. All foods, including your favorites, can fit into a healthy eating plan.
Remember these four key points, which are the basics of good nutrition:
Balance. Eat a mix of different types of food. Make half your plate fruits and vegetables. Then fill your plate with one quarter protein and one quarter whole grains.
Variety. Choose a wide range of foods of different colors.
Flexibility. Find an eating plan that fits your schedule and tastes.
Moderation. Avoid too much of any one food.
When reading food labels, it helps to know what words stand for. The terms are based on one serving size.
