Food and Wellbeing

One of the most important decisions you make each day is choosing which foods to eat. Whole, nutrient-dense foods are a necessary part of a healthy lifestyle. In addition, how you eat has an impact on wellbeing. Do you rush through meals, eating on the go? Or do you sit down with loved ones and savor your time together? 

This section recommends that you make healthy food choices that follow the dietary guidelines set by the U.S. Department of Health and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. This will give your body the nutrients it needs, while controlling portion sizes and limiting high calorie foods.

  1. Live longer
  2. Prevent disease
  3. Maintain healthy weight
