Eating well using the food label

Carbohydrates:

  • Fruits

  • Vegetables

  • Dry beans

  • Whole Grains

  • Make half of your grains whole grains. Be on the lookout for the "whole" grain as the main ingredient. 

  • Start eating brown rice instead of white

  • Compare the labels on cereal. Buy the ones that don't have more than 6 grams of sugar and have at least 5 grams of fiber. 

  • Fresh fruits and veggies are tasty, healthy. These are whole foods that don't need a nutrition fact label. 

What is whole food?

These are foods in their natural state. Always avoid processed foods that a long list of ingredients added to them. 

 

When it come to fruits and veggies fresh is best. Frozen or even canned can be ok.

  • Proteins should be chosen lean

  • Seafood

  • Dry beans

  • Whole Grains

  • Low-fat dairy

 

Limit highly processed foods that are high in fat, sugar and sodium content:

  • Prepared meals

  • White Bread

  • Deli meats

  • Cookies Chips

  • Candy

  • Soda

  • Products with ingredients you can't pronounce

 

Always aim high on the percentage of vitamins and nutrients!
