Cook on The Bright Side...

The benefits of healthy eating are endless. Making sure you have the right nutrients is so crucial and not only lowers the risk of certain diseases but also supports and keeps our muscles and bones strong, as well as helps our digestive system function. Certain foods groups such as whole grains, fruits, vegetables, starches, and fish are important for one to incorporate into their diet.


Vegetables

Dark green vegetables are important to have 3-4 times a week. Good choices would be kale, spinach, and broccoli.


Whole Grains

Whole grains are important to incorporate 2-3 times a week. Good choices of whole grains are oatmeal, wheat, quinoa, or barley, which are great sources of fiber.


Beans, Lentils, and Fish...

A serving of beans or lentils is important to have once a week. Beans and lentils can be added to soups or stews.

2-3 servings of fish a week is important. Fishes such as salmon, trout or sardines are good choices and are rich in protein.

Stay away from saturated fats...

Saturated fat is a type of fat where the fatty acid chains have single bonds. Saturated fat is found in cakes, fatty red meats such as sausages and beef, cheeses, etc.

Eating too many foods that contain saturated fats can raise and build up cholesterol in your arteries, which can increase the risk of stroke and heart disease.
