02/12/15- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Wednesday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 10. February 2014 05:23

 

 
We talk about the benefits of clean eating (moving away from processed white grains toward whole grains, lean meats and fish, low fat dairy, vegetables, fruits, nuts, healthy oils, and lots of water).  Portion control and exercise are key to helping achieve that long-term healthy lifestyle.  The end result will be more energy, focus, peacefulness and good health.

There is an internet tool that you can use to ensure that you have balance in your eating plan (I don’t like the word ‘diet’.  It has such an extreme, unhealthy connotation to me).  If you go to fruitandveggiesmatter.gov and click on “Interactive Tool” you will find a virtual plate that illustrates a plate filled with common foods.  It then calculates appropriate portion sizes, calories and more.

It’s a great teaching tool for children, and for anyone who wants to find balance in their menus.
