Top Nutritionists Share Their Healthy Eating Tips

[link] 

“Some interesting new research presented at the conference found that the most powerful snack for women seems to be a handful of veggies plus a 1 ounce serving of cheese. According to the study, subjects offered cheese and veggies ate the same amount of veggies as those given only veggies (the cheese didn't crowd out veggie consumption) and rated themselves as feeling more full. With this combo, you'll have the trifecta of something satisfying, packed with nutrients you need, that will naturally tell you when you've had enough."
-Kate Geagan, MS, RD, author of Go Green, Get Lean, Salt Lake City, Utah

 

“This year’s expo contained an entire gluten-free section, but pre-packed gluten-free foods can be expensive and highly processed. If you have to avoid gluten, one healthy, budget-friendly strategy is to choose whole foods that are naturally gluten-free. Instead of boxed crackers or cookies, reach for veggies and hummus, or fruit mixed with nonfat Greek yogurt topped with nuts.”
-Patricia Bannan, MS, RD, author of Eat Right When Time is Tight, Los Angeles
 


some of my fave snacks at the moment:
- canned tuna/salmon
- dark chocolate with roasted nuts and goji berries
- fresh fruit
- a small bowl of yoghurt and natural muesli
- and yesterday i had this nummy snack consisting of:
a slice of Burgen soy & linseed bread
low fat cottage cheese
homegrown teeny tiny tomatoes
homegrown basil
(im obsessed with my little veg garden)
