Fruits and Veggies First

Eating your fruits and veggies first is smart for your waistline and your overall health.

Well, duh!

Not only does it makes sense, but now we have research that shows that people who begin their meal with produce consume more nutrients and less saturated fat all day than those who didn’t.

Fruits and veggies have a high water content and lots of fiber, which fill you up, as well as many vitamins, minerals, and immune-protective antioxidants, that keep you healthy.

So, start your meal with a salad (watch the dressing, cheese, and crunchy things), vegetable or broth-based soup, fresh fruit, or veggies and hummus. Eat slowly, so that your brain gets the signal from your stomach that you’re full. And don’t forget to listen to your body. If you’re getting full, then stop eating.

Try it today and see if you notice a difference in how much you eat.
