Although it sometimes feels like it, eating healthy meals isn’t rocket science. Fresh, healthy foods can often be combined quickly — it’s just a matter of knowing what to add to what. To help take away some of the mystery, check out this handy chart from Women’s Health magazine. Here are 7 quick dinners that you can put together in 5-minutes or less. For a few more details on each combination, check out the “What Nutritionists Eat When They Only Have 5 Minutes to Prep a Meal” slideshow by clicking here.
Ever wonder what a single (read: healthy) portion of fruit looks like? This handy chart takes away the guess work. Fruit, while being great for you, should (like any other food) be eaten in proper portion sizes. The more reasonable we are with our portion control across the board, the better eaters (and the healthier) we become — no matter what we happen to be munching on. So take a moment to review the chart and then continue to make the kind of eating choices that add to your health, rather than detract from it.
Now, of course, the trick is to not get too bogged down by the details of what equates to just one meal. Can it be one extreme meal for many of us? Sure. And we have a choice to cut back during the gobble-gobble fest, or to just enjoy and get back on the horse (or the scale as it were) right after said meal.
But still, the chart below sheds some light on the situation (if not some pounds):
Have you gotten a flu shot this season? Or are you one of the people finding out that a lot of places don’t have the vaccine available due to high demand? Or do you believe that flu shots aren’t necessary?
According to MSN Healthy Living, this current flu season is resulting in some of the highest rates of influenza compared to the previous decade. MSN Healthy Living goes onto report that in January, the proportion of deaths related to pneumonia and influenza reached slightly above the epidemic threshold (according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). Using the MSN Healthy Living’s helpful chart (below), you can find out more about this year’s flu season, what, exactly, the flu is and — most important — how to hopefully avoid catching the flu. After all, what good is all of our healthy eating and exercise if we aren’t healthy in every other way, too? Let’s stay informed and stay well. (If you have any tips of your own — or if you want to weigh in on the pro flu shot vs. anti flu shot debate, please share, below, in the comments section!)
