Healthy Snacks T.V. Segment Part 1

The last television appearance I did was on healthy snacking. I wanted to share some of the tips that I shared in the interview. And, there are some bonus tips for healthy eating as well!

What are some tips to eat healthfully
This is one of the most common questions that I get as an RD. So I use the acronym E.A.T. to help myself and my clients remember to eat healthfully.
  • E is for ‘easy.’
    • We want to make healthy eating easy, so have fresh fruits and vegetables easily accessible in your home or work place. 
  • A is for ‘affordable.’
    • One of the most common barriers that I see to healthy eating is the perception that healthy eating is expensive. I would encourage you to eat seasonal fruits and vegetables. If you eat seasonally, usually produce is more affordable.
  • T is for ‘tasty.
    • Healthy eating should be enjoyable. We enjoy eating because it is tasty. So, try new fruits and vegetables to see which ones you prefer. Or try preparing fruits and vegetables

I hope this will be helpful to you and encourage healthy snacks throughout the day. I hope you remember to E.A.T healthy year-round. And, I hope you remember to make healthy choices when you are busy and on-the-go.
