  • The more veggies and the greater the variety, the better
  • Eat plenty of fruits of all colors
  • Whole grains, brown rice, quinoa
  • Limit red meats (beef, pork, lamb)
  • Avoid processed meats (bacon, deli meats, hot dogs and sausages)
  • Use healthy oils from plants like extra virgin olive, canola, sunflower, and peanut oil
  • Choose unflavored milk, plain yogurt, and small amounts of cheese
  • Water is the best choice for quenching thirst; limit juice
