Eat Healthy

Check out 15 of our best tips and tricks for healthy eating, which—if you know how to do it—can taste just as good as it makes you feel.






February 1998



 

Frozen vegetables can be just as nutritious as fresh because they’re processed at their peak time.



 

June 2004

 

Choose dark chocolate—it has more antioxidants than milk chocolate.




November 2011


 

Not a fan of whole-wheat bread? Try white whole-wheat, which is made with a type of wheat that’s softer and has a milder taste.



February 2003



 

Get your family to eat more veggies by serving salsa. It’s loaded with corn, peppers and tomatoes.

      Salsa is a good way to sneak in veggies as well as some fruits. I have children and thankfully they love salsa but for kids that are not big fans it would be good to add in some fruits such as mangos, pineapple or peaches. - 1/9/2012   2:53:19 PM

      Good article to start, but I disagree with frozen vegetables. You lose a substantial amount of enzymes & nutrients when you cook foods above 104 degrees F, so while there are *some* nutrients there, not all of them are. It's a lot better to obtain your peas fresh instead of frozen or from a can. Then again, getting on the right start to eating vegetables in general is a big step for anybody! :) - 1/9/2012   10:35:45 AM
