Healthy Monday Tip: Sept. 1, 2014
Harness Whole Health
Nutrients are most heavily concentrated when foods are in their natural state. Though many processed foods have health claims on the box, whole foods usually offer more antioxidants, fiber and essential vitamins. Plus, processed foods pack unhealthy extras like sugar, fat, sodium and other additives.
Purify your diet this week by choosing whole foods over more processed options; replace applesauce with sliced apples, choose baked potato wedges with olive oil over French fries, or opt for whole grain oats over packaged granola bars.
