10 Nutrition Tips

Who loves carbs?! I love carbs!  Complex carbs, fruits, and vegetables are key components to a healthy lifestyle.

  1. Carbs don’t make you overweight, cause hyperactivity, or cause diabetes. Eating too many calories will create excess body fat. No scientific evidence supports any link between the intake of sugars and hyperactivity. Sugars and other carbohydrates do not cause diabetes. Carbohydrates are the main power source for your brain and muscles. Chosen wisely, carbohydrate-rich foods — whole and enriched grain foods, fruits, vegetables, beans — deliver more than energy. They also provide important vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients.
  2. Keep a bowl of whole fruit on the table, counter, or in the refrigerator.
  3. Buy fresh fruits and vegetables in season when they may be less expensive and at their peak flavor.
  4. Select fruits and vegetables with more potassium often: such as bananas, prunes and prune juice, dried peaches and apricots, cantaloupe, honeydew melon, and orange juice.  Sweet potatoes, white potatoes, white beans, tomato products (paste, sauce, and juice), beet greens, soybeans, lima beans, winter squash, spinach, lentils, kidney beans, and split peas.
  5. Vary your fruit choices. Fruits differ in nutrient content.
  6. For dessert, have baked apples, pears, or a fruit salad.
  7. Dried fruits also make a great snack. They are easy to carry and store well. Because they are dried, ¼ cup is equivalent to ½ cup of other fruits.
  8. Shred carrots or zucchini into meatloaf, casseroles, quick breads, and muffins.
  9. Include chopped vegetables in pasta sauce or lasagna.
  10. Buy vegetables that are easy to prepare. Pick up pre-washed bags of salad greens and add baby carrots or grape tomatoes for a salad in minutes. Buy packages of veggies such as baby carrots or celery sticks for quick snacks.
