Spring is here. Isn't it nice? Let's spring into it healthy. We will be out and about, getting rid of winter laziness. Getting our bodies moving with outdoor activities. Start everyday in April with breakfast and stay healthy all day.
You can go a long way toward feeling good, maintaining a healthy weight and preventing disease by eating a diet rich in whole grains, fruits and vegetables, but low in cholesterol and saturated fat.
Start every day with breakfast:
1. Begin with whole grain cereal for fiber.
2. Use milk for protein.
3. Top with fruit for vitamins and antioxidants.
A diet rich in natural whole grains, such as is in Post cereals has been shown to improve heart health. It also helps to protect against certain diseases, like cancer and Type 2 Diabetes. Three Post cereals to me your daily requirement for whole grain, fiber and antioxidants are the following: Raisin Bran. Whole grain wheat and bran flakes, plus raisins provide a heart-healthy combination of vitamins, whole grains and fiber. Grape-Nuts provides 33 grams of whole grains and 7 grams of fiber and makes a tasty, low-fat breakfast. Shredded Wheat, only one with 100% natural whole grains, contains zero fat.
