Balanced Diet Aim for a balanced diet that includes a variety of nutrient-rich foods from all food groups.  To achieve this, consume adequate amounts of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats.

Hydration Stay hydrated by consuming enough water throughout the day.  Water assists digestion, helps maintain body temperature, and supports all biological functions.

Fruit and Vegetables Incorporate a wide range of colorful fruits and vegetables into your meals. They are packed with essential vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants, which help protect against chronic diseases.

Healthy Fats Include healthy fats in your diet such as nuts, seeds, avocados, and olive oil. These fats are essential for brain function, hormone production, and absorbing fat-soluble vitamins.

Limit Added Sugars and Processed Foods Minimize your intake of added sugars, sugary beverages, and processed foods, as they can contribute to weight gain and increase the risk of chronic conditions like heart disease and diabetes.

Lean Proteins Choose lean proteins like skinless poultry, fish, lentils, and tofu as your protein sources. These are lower in saturated fat and can contribute to muscle growth, repair, and overall health.

Whole Grains Choose whole grains like brown rice, quinoa, whole wheat bread, and oats over refined grains. Whole grains provide more fiber and nutrients while promoting better digestion.
