Making smart meal choices

Saturday, April 5 2014 2:06 AM

The best way to a healthy, well-nourished body is through smart meal choices and regular exercise.

A healthy eating plan means choosing from a variety of foods packed with the nutrients you need while staying within your daily calorie needs. According to the American Dietetic Association, a healthy eating plan:

• Emphasizes fruits, vegetables, whole grains and fat-free or low-fat milk and milk products.

• Includes lean meats, poultry, fish, beans, eggs and nuts.

• Is low in saturated fats, trans fats, cholesterol, salt (sodium) and added sugars.

More information on this and other food and nutrition-related topics is available from:
