Eating healthy and exercising don’t have to be boring! You can spice up nourishing snacks and get exercise without even realizing it with the following tips.
Let’s work our way up the food pyramid starting with grains. You should be eating about 6 oz. of grains every day—try to make at least half of them whole grains. This isn’t as bland as you may think. For breakfast, try whole-grain cereals like Cheerios or Raisin Bran or oatmeal. For snacks, munch on low-fat popcorn, and ask your mom to substitute brown rice for white rice at the dinner table. And remember, just because bread is brown doesn’t mean it’s whole grain. Take a look at the packaging to make sure it says “whole wheat” or “whole grain”—and check the label on the back to be sure it has at least 2g of fiber.
