pb is NOT bad for you, but you must eat it in small portions b/c it CAN start showing on you in inches, but it is the "good" fat and peanuts, especially walnuts and almonds are grrrrrrrrreat for you!! there is proof that a handful of nuts per day is healthy and can help you lose and maintain weight and it really is simple to construct a healthy eating plan however, the fruits and veggies we KNOW we are supposed to eat just don't taste as good as the stuff we WANT to eat eat five a day (the color way!) to get your friuts and veggies start here with this simple slogan and follow it, and the rest will come to you as long as you stop and think about what you are getting ready to consume and remember - you MUST make this a lifestyle change!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! good luck to you

Most any food choices in a Chinese restaurant are not very healthy because of all the fat, sodium and calories the food has. Even the foods that are high in veggies and low in protein are still not really healthy due to how they are cooked. I would say both of your options are equal in nutritional value so eat which ever one you want. If the restaurant has a 'steamed' option for veggies and rice that would be good to go with, and you could forgo the sauces that are full of bad things.

Peanut butter is a very caloric, yet very healthy food. In general, raw peanut butter (as in less refined) is better than refined, because it retains many of the beneficial nutrients found in the skin; in addition, processed peanut butter might contain added trans-fatty acids (which have been shown to increase the risk of cardiocirculatory diseases). A further risk is that when badly preserved, it can host the mold Aspergillus flavus, that produces aflatoxin (a very toxic and carcinogenic substance), so your best bet is to always go with natural peanut butter. Serving sizes tell you how much nutrition you're getting from a particular food but they don't tell you which foods you need to stay healthy — and how much of those foods you should eat. That's where the U.S. Department of Agriculture's MyPyramid comes in. MyPyramid divides foods into six groups: grains vegetables fruits oils dairy meat and beans MyPyramid then offers guidelines to help people figure out how much of these foods they should eat based on age, gender, and activity level. Once we know the types of foods and quantities we should be eating, it's easier to figure out how much of that heaping plate of food our bodies actually need as opposed to how much they want. Instead of going along with what your school cafeteria or favorite restaurant puts on your plate, you can take control by eating only the amount you need

no remember what, quick nutrition is going to be larger calorie that what you probable want to be eating on a low calorie nutrition plan yet there are some thoughts. Subway may be for sure the perfect selection because as long as you stay faraway from the salami, roast beef, and saucy meat thoughts you'd be eating quite healthful. you could devour as many greens as you want and your body is in basic terms going to dissipate the necessary food and then remove some thing. At McDonald's i'd personally order a salad with a low-fat/fat-loose dressing and an analogous for at Starbucks in the experience that they furnish salads the position you're.

Whole grain bread, cereal, ect. have a lot more fiber and nutrients than food made with refined flour. Look for whole grain or whole wheat on lables. Also, I you like to bake replace some of the allpurpose flour with whole wheat flour. And of course eat lots of fruit and veggies. A good way to cook veggies is to steam them. That way they keep all their nutrients. Eat low fat and fat free dairy products, like milk and yogurt. Fish is very good for you, it's high in omega 3 fats. Other lean meats are good. Try to eat a low amount of saturated fat and don't eat any foods with trans fat. Oh and peanut butter is good for you as long as you don't eat a lot of it. Nuts in general are a good source of healthy fats but you just don't want to eat too many of them. Have fun eating healthy! I know it seems like healthy food tastes bad but that's not true at all. I would look up healthy recipes for creative ways to eat healthily.

Here's one of my favorite main-dish soups: Catch of the Sea Chowder This is a wonderful, hearty chowder that makes soup a main dish. I love it using a variety of seafood -- a little fish, a few shrimp, a few scallops. The original recipe calls for using Campbell's Potato Soup, however I have changed the recipe to eliminate the processed ingredient. Ingredients 1 cup Celery sliced 1/2 cup Onion chopped 1 tsp. Olive oil 1 large Potato diced to 1/2 inch dice 1/2 gallon Fat free milk 1 lb. White fish fillet cut in 1" pieces 1/2 pound Shrimp raw 1/2 pound Bay scallops 1 can (8 oz.) Corn drained 1/8 tsp. Black pepper 1 medium Bay leaf 3 ea Eggs hard boiled, optional Instructions Sauté celery and onion in olive oil until tender in a sauce pan. Add potato, milk, corn pepper and bay leaf. Simmer 10 minutes or until the potato is done. With a slotted spoon, scoop out half the potato and corn and set aside. Remove and dispose of the bay leaf. Use an immersion blender to blend the remaining milk, potatoes and corn in the sauce pan. Return the potatoes and corn that had been set aside to the sauce pan. Add the fish to the pan and simmer about 10 minutes or until the fish is done. Stir often. ADDITIONAL SUGGESTION: You might try picking up a rotisserie chicken from the deli section. You can have it as is with a baked sweet potato, or shred the chicken and make quesedillas.
