Eat three kinds of food at meals.  

Monday, December 1, 2008

The more different types of foods you eat, the more different types of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients you consume. Instead of eating a repetitive menu with the same 10 to 15 foods each week, target 35 different types of foods per week. You can do this by eating not just Bran Flakes topped with banana for breakfast, but many different brands of cereal topped with a variety of different fruits; not just a turkey sandwich for lunch, but different types of breads and sandwich fillings; not just spinach in the salad, but lots of different colorful vegetables. Start counting!
