Increase your intake of fruits and veggies. The fiber, vitamins, and enzymes in fresh food are best for all of us. Steam vegetables so that they are softer in case you have dental issues, plus steaming helps vegetables retain their nutrients over boiling. But, raw is best with a tasty dip as a snack or a small meal.
Make lunch your biggest meal of the day. During the day is when we all need the most energy. Also, sleeping with a full belly can cause digestive problems during the night.
Eat whole grains. Choose bread and pasta that is whole grain. One way to get used to whole grains is to mix whole grain pasta with regular pasta and gradually increase the whole grain levels.
Stay hydrated. Sip liquids throughout your entire day. Water is best, but tea is also a great option for staying hydrated.
Don't skip meals. Skipping meals can drop blood sugars and cause dizziness. If you’re not hungry, it’s better to eat a little than not at all. 5-6 small meals throughout the day will reduce the highs and lows of insulin levels and help you maintain your energy.
