Mix It Up at Meals


Make breakfast, lunch, and dinner a combo of high-quality carbs, lean protein, and healthy fats (think avocado, nuts, seeds, nut butters, olive oil, etc.)

  • For breakfast try vanilla Greek yogurt with sliced bananas and toasted nuts, or an egg-white omelet stuffed with veggies and cheese with whole-grain toast.
  • For lunch enjoy a grilled chicken wrap with lettuce and tomato rolled in a whole-grain tortilla, or lentil-bean chili with a whole-grain roll
  • For dinner prepare shrimp and broccoli stir fry over brown rice, or grilled salmon with sautéed spinach and a baked sweet potato.
