Focused on Health - February 2013
These tips are part of the Healthy Bites challenge, developed to help you eat the right foods and lower your cancer risks!
Follow these easy snack tips to successfully complete the “eat every five to six hours” challenge.
Nutrition Tip 1: Plan ahead. If your busy schedule doesn’t include time for three balanced meals, keep a healthy snack on hand to tide you over.
Nutrition Tip 2: Focus on portion control. Prepackage snacks into single-serving containers to avoid overeating. And, choose snacks that have 200 calories or less.
Nutrition Tip 3: Make the perfect snack by combining an unrefined carbohydrate, like fruit or whole grain crackers, with a protein, like cheese or peanut butter.
Nutrition Tip 4: Stock up on nutritious options. Opt for snacks that include a fruit or veggie. It’s a great way to sneak in extra cancer-fighting nutrients.
