Fruit - Fruit makes a great snack, and it’s an excellent source of vitamins and minerals. Vegetables - The more veggies you eat the better. Fresh and steamed vegetables have the most nutrients. The USDA recommends that half your daily intake of food be fruits and vegetables. Grains - Choose whole grains. Whole grain bread and rice have more nutrients and flavor than white bread and rice. Protein - Foods that provide protein include meat, beans, eggs, fish, and nuts. Choose lean meats that are grilled or baked - not breaded or fried. Dairy - Look for fat free or low-fat dairy products, and choose yogurt over ice cream. Treat your body well! Eat fresh foods whenever possible and stay away from high calorie processed foods.
