Martha's Minute: Foods for Life
Eating to Send a Healthy Message
Are 3 balanced meals a day enough to keep you healthy? Food is the preferred source of nutrients to supply you foundational nutrition needs for basic health maintenance. Knowing how to eat to maximize these nutrients will help you stay on a path of reduced disease risk.
As you probably know, the foods you eat can be broken down into 3 categories: fats, proteins, and carbohydrates. They're all essential to health—but not every food supplies them in a "good" way. And too much of anything—even a good thing—is still too much. As part of my Vibrant LifeStyle Plan, I help you create customized daily calorie intake and serving size suggestions to match your individual needs and activity level.
