AN EASY WAY TO EAT HEALTHIER

Eating healthier is not hard or complicated.  There are so many easy simple ways to improve your diet and therefore your weight and your health.  Here is a really simple way to make an improvement in your snacking and that is key.  It is estimated that many of us get at least a quarter of our daily calories from our snacks.  And most of them are not healthy according to Registered Dietitian, Kate Geagan.  She recommends eating only one ingredient snacks such as fruits, nuts, etc.  Combinations of one ingredient snacks such as trail mix, etc count as one ingredient items.  The key is to stay away from processed foods.  The more ingredients in a product, the more processed it usually is.  Processed foods are usually higher in fat, sugar, salt, additives, etc.  You don't need to put that into your body with your snacking. A small change that can make a big difference!
