‘I’m a big eater.’ ‘I like to eat.’ When clients come @ me with this defense, I like to reply, “Yes, you’re among many!” and “Who doesn’t?” My easy-to-remember tips that work any time, but especially in summer:
· If portions trip you up, make half your plate fruits and vegetables and you won’t be hungry. Eat whole fruits and choose a ‘rainbow’ of veggies for lots of nutrients.
· Make half your grains whole grains. You get fiber for gut health, no deprivation of your beloved carbs, and you stay full longer.
· Vary your protein routine. There’s more to life than burgers and chicken wings! Hint: Americans don’t consume enough of this, and it swims in the sea…
There you have it: three steps for better summertime eating for food lovers everywhere.
