Healthy Tuesday Tips!

Easter celebration is around the corner and there will be lots of dining. If you are making your own meals, preserve the nutrients and colors in vegetables by steaming or stir-frying. Choose oils like canola, olive, corn for cooking. Limit the use of salt and use more spices like thyme, ginger,rosemary,garlic,onion,cinnamon etc.

If dining out look over the menu options online before going out. Be deliberate when ordering, let your dishes include healthier selections from different food groups e.g low- or non-fat dairy, fruits, vegetables, lean meat. Ask for a side-salad instead of fries.
