This Week's Topic: What's on Your Plate? Smart Food Choices for Healthy Aging
When we were younger it seemed like we could eat just about anything, donuts for breakfast, high fat foods whenever we went out to dinner and fast foods to match our busy lifestyles. As years go by, however, we learn that the choices that we made earlier have a direct impact on the quality of our life in later years. Lessons that we learn now can make a big difference in the quality of our life as we age. WebMD Video: Tracking Nutrition Trends
THIS WEEKS BONUS QUESTION: the Government has a new icon which replaces the old Food Pyraimd and it's called "MyPlate". Plain and simple, the new plate icon shows what types of foods should comprise your main meals. What percentage of your plate should include fruits and vegetables?
