Changes to Consider

Just completed my Wellness Checkpoint at work. It says I should consider the following changes:

  • Try to eat at least 5 fruits and/or vegetables EVERY day.
  • Cut down on snacks with 'empty' calories from fats and sugars but with little nutrient value.
  • Try to eat cabbage, broccoli, Brussels sprouts or cauliflower three or more TIMES A WEEK.
  • Eat beans and lentils at least once a week. They are high in fiber and protein and low in fat.
  • Cut down on processed, smoked or cured meats (no more than once a week).
  • Cut down on saturated fats in hard cheese, butter, sour cream and cream cheese. Watch the fat content in your margarine.
  • Drink 8 glasses of water each day.
  • Try to eat fish regularly. Salmon and tuna are good choices for sandwiches.

Yes, I know; I'll try.
