General Healthy Eating

  • Make half your grains, whole.

  • Eat 5 servings of vegetables daily.

  • Eat 5 servings of different fruits daily

  • Dairy is great source of calcium and protein.

  • Meats provide us with Protein, B12 and Iron but can be very high in fat. Chose leaner meats, grill and bake instead of frying. Soy, tofu, eggs, unsalted nuts and dried beans are excellent replacements for meat products.

  • Choosing the unsaturated fats is the best options. Unsaturated fats are the ones who remain liquid at room temperature. Example: Olive oil

Fast metabolism
Fast Metabolism

  • Eat 6-8 small meals

  • Snack on healthy foods between meals such as fruit, yogurt, cheese.

  • Stay hydrated!! Drink at least 8 glasses of water per day.

  • Combine your carbs with a protein. Examples: apple and peanut butter, whole grain crackers and cheese, greek yogurt and fruit.

  • Keep processed foods to a minimum. These tend to be high in fat, sugars and sodium.

Gluten free

  • For people who have Celiac Disease or Gluten Sensitivity, whenever they ingest gluten, their immune system attacks the body (such as the intestines) and causes inflammation.

  • Using separate utensils for each food is recommended

  • Gloves should be changed before preparing allergen-free meal.

  • New knives, clean cutting boards should be used.
