Healthy Eating Tips

  • Go to nnudining.com to plan your menus before entering the dining hall. 
  • Find out what your perfect weight should be and set your goal, as well as determining a healthy eating and exercise plan. Make it fun and create a game of counting calories versus calorie burning.
  • Stay away from sweets and things made with lots of white flour and sugar.
  • Try whole wheat instead of white.
  • The more colorful the food on your plate, the healthier it is.
  • The salad bar is a great place to eat, but if you saturate your salad with too much dressing you're defeating the purpose.
  • Make a sandwich on whole wheat or seven-grain bread--or no bread at all.
  • Instead of potato chips eat a baked potato. 
  • Portion control is the key.  Follow the 3oz to 4oz rule.  A plate of food should only be 3 - 4 ounces per serving per item.
