The good news is, eating well and cooking healthy meals can improve your overall health. Here are some healthy eating and cooking tips to get you started.
- Eat whole foods like fruit, vegetables, beans, whole grains and nuts.
- Reduce your intake of processed foods such as those that come in a bag or a box.
- Limit sugary foods and beverages.
- Get familiar with how to read nutrition labels. This will help you monitor your calorie, sodium, fat and carbohydrate intake.
