EAT RIGHT WEEK 4: Whole Grains and Nuts/Seeds!

Your Action Plan (Whole Grains): Make sure you get most of your nutrition and calorie needs met by non-starchy vegetables, fruits, beans, nuts and seeds and not on whole grains. If you eat grains, make sure it’s whole grains which is found in the bulk aisle and not in packaged foods. If you buy packaged foods with whole grain, make sure it says 100% whole grain.

Your Action Plan (Nuts/Seeds): Even though raw nuts are seeds are a health food, they should still be eaten in limited quantity. If you are trying to lose weight, do not exceed one (for women) or two (for men) ounce of raw nuts and seeds daily. (Nuts and seeds are about 175 calories per ounce.) *Eat Right America
