Reducing portion size

Healthy Chelsea tip #3

Reducing portion size

Reducing portion sizes – how much we eat for a meal or a snack – is a good way to avoid too many calories, fat, sodium and sugar, but it can be tricky learning what a healthy portion size is.  For example, did you know that 3 ounces of lean meat is equivalent to the size of a deck of cards or the palm of your hand? And 1 cup of breakfast cereal is about the size of your fist?

Rethink your drink

Healthy Chelsea tip #2

Rethink your drink 

The soft drink aisle of any supermarket presents us with dozens of choices! Wow What should we try this time? Well, nothing actually; we’re much better off walking past the soft drink isle to the dairy section for a carton of low fat milk. Milk is an excellent source of protein and calcium and it’s fortified with vitamin D.

The other recommended beverage – water- you already have at home.
