Healthy Eating Guide

  • Make sure that your diet contains all the essential nutrients for good health.
  • Eating a wide variety of foods from all the food groups on Canada's or the US Food Guide Pyramid will help you get the vitamins and minerals you need.
  • Order salad dressings and other sauces on the side so you can control portions.
  • Drink water, diet soda or unsweetened tea or coffee instead of soda that may be high in sugars, calories or carbohydrates.
  • Substitute steamed vegetables instead of rice, fries or potatoes.
  • Instead of butter, sour cream or bacon, order salsa, which is low in calories and fat for your baked potato.
  • If you want to limit your carbohydrate intake, ask to not be served bread on the table (unless your fellow diners can eat it).
  • If you drink alcohol, drink in moderation.
  • Listen to your body and stop eating when you are full. Don't feel obligated to finish what is on your plate; ask to take the rest home.
