2 Keys to Eating Better

2 Keys to Eating Better

Getting more goodness into your meals could be as easy as these two steps: Plan ahead, and eat at the dinner table.

If you’re like many people, you have no idea what you’re going to eat for dinner until you rummage around the kitchen at 5 p.m. But you’ll eat more fruit and veggies if you’re a planner. That’s exactly what happened in a study when women decided in advance what they were going to eat and shopped for meals ahead of time.

When a plan comes together . . .
Planning was key to healthful eating. But it also helped if the women ate dinner at the table and enjoyed cooking. (Time for that cooking class?) So make a plan, hit the store, and stick with it! Bonus: Adding more fruits and veggies to your diet could help you lose those stubborn holiday pounds.
