September
  Easy Ways to Eat Healthy Month!​

Friends cooking with vegetables
​It's easier than you think to start eating healthy! 

Take one small step each week to improve your nutrition and move toward a healthier you in just one month. 
 
Week 1: Make half your plate fruits and vegetables. 
Choose red, orange, and dark-green vegetables like tomatoes, sweet potatoes, and broccoli, along with other vegetables for your meals. Add fruit to meals as part of main or side dishes or as dessert. The more colorful you make your plate, the more likely you are to get the vitamins, minerals, and fiber your body needs to be healthy.

Week 2: Make half the grains you eat whole grains. 
Read the ingredients list and choose products that list a whole-grain ingredient first. Look for things like: "whole wheat," "brown rice," "bulgur," "buckwheat," "oatmeal," "rolled oats," quinoa," or "wild rice."

Week 3: Choose a variety of lean proteins. 
Meat, poultry, seafood, beans, eggs, nuts, and seeds are considered part of the protein foods group. Select leaner cuts of ground beef (where the label says 90% lean or higher), turkey breast, or chicken breast.

Week 4: Cut back on solid fats. 
Eat fewer foods that contain solid fats. The major sources of solid fats are cakes, cookies, and other desserts made with butter, margarine, or shortening; processed and fatty meats like sausages, hot dogs, bacon, and ribs; and ice cream.
