Our food fuels our health: eating healthy can help you have more energy, manage stress, maintain a healthy weight, and reduce your risk for chronic conditions like diabetes and heart disease.
WorkWell NYC knows that in today’s busy world, making the healthiest choice is not always the easiest one! However, there are small steps you can take to improve your nutrition and live a healthy life.
Here are some simple strategies to help you eat well and reap the rewards of a healthy lifestyle:
|✔||Get colorful! Eat as many colorful fruits and vegetables as you can every day — make sure half of your plate is filled with fruits and vegetables. They are good to you and for you!|
|✔||Join a farm share or CSA (Community-Supported Agriculture) program to get fresh, local fruits and vegetables at affordable rates.|
|✔||Find ways to make the foods you enjoy healthier, like baking instead of frying, or swapping out salt for herbs and spices.|
|✔||Increase your water consumption. Start slow and increase gradually. Mix it up by adding fruit for flavor, or grab some sparkling water if you’re craving bubbles.|
|✔||Try to bring your lunch to work to save time and money. Double your dinner recipe to cook once, eat twice!|
