| Lunch Time!|
Packing a lunch not only saves you hundreds of dollars a year but also calories. Take-out salads may seem like a healthier option however, many have more than 1,000 calories! If you are ordering out, follow these easy guidelines...
-Keep your fat intake to less than 30% of total calories
-Stay with 500 calories or less, or cut portion in half
-Add healthy sides like fruit or a salad
-Drink plenty of water with your meal
-The meal contains plenty of protein
| Are the mid-afternoon munchies calling?|
Most vending machine snacks are high in calories and not very satisfying. Instead of hitting the machine, plan ahead and stock your desk with healthy snacks such as:
-Trail mix and/or dried fruits & nuts
-Cans of soup
Small steps can produce BIG results. Try and introduce one or all of these steps into your daily routine and you will be on your way to living a healthier lifestyle!
