Monitor your Nutrition

FRUIT FIRST

Consuming too much sugar is bad for you. To satisfy your sweet tooth craving, think ‘fruit first.’

GO NUTS

Nuts and seeds deliver heart-healthy fats. They also add heart-healthy fiber to your diet.

SPICE IT UP

Make an effort to include as many different herbs and spices as you can. Many of them have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects, leading to various health benefits.

 

MINDFULNESS

Digestion begins in the brain, so look at, think about and smell your food. This will help you enjoy the meal even more.

SNACKING

Having high quality small snacks, “mini meals” or fresh juice during the day can help to boost energy and prevent over-eating.

COLOR

Increase your intake of vegetables and fruits. Go for color and variety—dark green, yellow, orange, and red.
