Eating whole grains like brown rice or quinoa, along with vegetables and fruits, will help you get the nutrients you need each day.
The pyramid tells you what to eat, but it doesn't say how much. If you want to lose weight, try eating smaller portions.
Make your meal healthier and tastier by adding herbs and spices that are rich in antioxidants.
If you decide to drink, only have one glass per day, preferably red wine. Alcohol has a lot of calories and added sugars.
To keep your heart healthy, use olive oil instead of other cooking oils like corn oil, safflower oil, or sunflower oil.
Cooking doesn't have to be complicated. The more you cook, the more control you'll have over the ingredients in your meals.
