You can take it with you
Forget that potentially leaky plastic container when transporting your lunch salad to work (or wherever). These days it’s all about pre-making and then taking your salad with you in a handy Mason-style jar. The trick is to keep wet ingredients on the bottom, then stack dry ingredients on the top. You can check out the tasty recipe for the Salad in a Mason Jar pictured here — featuring greens, walnuts, celery, radish, and apple by clicking to EatWithinYourMeans.com.

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.
