Healthy Habits (Part 1)

Add more fruits and vegetables to your daily diet.  They are naturally high in antioxidants, vitamins, fiber and minerals.  If you are keeping track of your daily calorie intake, they are less in calories too.

If you have a New Year resolution to lose weight, fruits and vegetables will substitute high calorie food items you were taking before.  Keep a big bowl of fruits on your kitchen counter within reach and in clear vision.  It will help you and your family to develop a healthy habit of eating fruits.

Make a pot of soup with lots of vegetables.  It is inexpensive, quick and easy to make, and filling.  Fresh winter vegetables are in ample supply.  Mix in carrots, potatoes, squash and parsnips.  Roast some of the vegetables to enrich the flavor of your soup or puree some of it to thicken your soup.

If you have a habit of snacking between meals, keep a bagful of vegetables within reach.  Carrots and celery are excellent substitute and they fill you up until your next meal while providing healthy vitamins.  Fruits are excellent snacks too.  Bring a mixture of fruits such as grapes, blueberries, and dried fruits to snack on at work.
