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.
