Eating healthy doesn't mean sticking to tofu and bean sprouts all the time. In this video, I will discuss how fine dining and optimum nutrition are not mutually exclusive.

Some healthy food options for you are:
  • When you eat calorie-friendly fruits and vegetables that are in season, they tend to taste better and you're more likely to enjoy them.
  • Eat a rainbow of colors. Have at least one brightly colored fruit or vegetable in each meal, and, if appropriate, eat the skins -- that's where you'll find a powerhouse of antioxidants.
  • Get familiar with quinoa -- a wonderful grain that's easy to cook and goes great with sautéed vegetables or mushrooms.
  • Use the freezer to add some extra oomph to summer foods.
  • Freeze grapes for some bite-sized delights. Or get a popsicle mold and freeze some Greek yogurt with berries.
  • Replace your regular pasta noodles with whole wheat pasta for a more filling meal.Try a pasta-less spaghetti by mixing shredded zucchini, veggie meatballs and raw tomato sauce seasoned with a dash of zesty oregano.
