Reshape Your Health
Choosing a Healthy Lifestyle Just Got Easier. Simple changes in your food choices can be the first step toward a healthier you. And, since there’s no one plan that fits everyone, it’s important to develop a blueprint for healthy eating that’s packed with a variety of tasty, nutrient-rich foods and keeps your unique lifestyle in mind.
Besides being rich in protein, tuna is also a great source of omega-3 fatty acids. The omega-3s from fatty fish like tuna have been shown to have heart health benefits and as a result, the American Heart Association recommends that we eat fish twice a week. Fatty fish are also one of the only food sources of vitamin D – a nutrient many people are lacking. Vitamin D plays a crucial role in helping the body to absorb calcium and to form and maintain strong bones. It helps to prevent osteoporosis and may also play a role in preventing high blood pressure, cancer and certain autoimmune diseases.
Bite into a juicy pear and you’ll be giving your body more than just a delicious sweet treat. Pears are jam-packed with fiber; in fact, a medium sized fruit contains a whopping 6 grams of fiber. It’s hard to top that! Pears are also a good source of vitamin C, which is a powerful antioxidant that helps the body fight infection, repair wounds, and enhance iron absorption.
When something tastes sweet and chocolatey, it must mean it’s bad for us, right? Wrong! Low-fat and fat-free puddings are made with reduced-fat or skim milk which means they provide us with important nutrients like protein and calcium without all the unhealthy saturated fat. Pudding does contain sugar though (unless it’s the sugar-free kind) so it’s still considered a treat. But it sure is a more nutritious way to get a little of the sweet stuff.
