What are some healthy foods?
The good news is that there are a lot of healthy foods. Fruits, veggies, whole grains, lean proteins and low fat/nonfat dairy are all good choices. I recommend following the healthy plate method. One-half of the plate is non-starchy veggies, one-quarter of the plate is protein and the other quarter is starch. Fruit and dairy are outside the plate. Of course it’s important to prepare your food in a healthy manner, such as broiling, baking and steaming. Limit/avoid butter, sauces, gravies and other high calorie/high fat items.
