Stay Home and Eat Healthy Challenge!

Wellness@Work is pleased to announce starting May 4:

The Stay Home and Eat Healthy Challenge!

For now, we’re all changing the way we eat – eating out less, preparing more food at home. And we’re all changing our shopping habits – buying more food to stock our shelves for a week or two of meals.  These changes can lead to healthier eating –

In this 4 week Challenge, we will focus on four “Eat Healthy” Themes:

Week #1: No added sugar

Added sugars are often hiding in food we wouldn’t think of. This first week will challenge us to read labels and re-think our drinks & snacks.

Week #2: Get healthy with fruits and veggies

Fruits & vegetables provide vitamins, minerals and fiber. Week #2 will challenge us to increase the number of servings to the recommended 5-9 per day.

Week #3: Go lean with protein

Meat, poultry, fish, beans, nuts and soy are some of the great sources of protein, which provide energy and vital nutrients. This week we will be challengee to choose lean, healthy protein-rich foods.

Week #4: Fill up on fiber-rich whole grains

Grains such as bread, pasta and rice provide fiber and half of all grains should be whole grains. This final week will challenge us to choose whole-grain products like whole-wheat pasta, whole-wheat crackers, whole-grain bread, rolled oats (oatmeal), and brown or long-grain rice.
