Vegetables and Fruits

  • Plan your meals around veggies and grains (rather than proteins).
  • Go for variety and lots of different colours over the course of the week.
  • Eat what’s in the season (it is usually cheaper and higher quality).
  • Good to know: Fruits are nutritionally pretty much the same as veggies.


  • Drink water when you are thirsty.
  • Avoid sugary drinks. Juices are sugary too, so limit to one small glass a day.
  • If you have dairy, limit to one or two servings a day.

Healthy Oils

  • Use vegetable oils that are liquid at room temperature (canola, olive, peanut, sunflower).
  • Avoid trans fats (anything that says “hydrogenated”) and limit other saturated fats like palm, coconut or butter (solid at room temperature).
  • Good to know: You no longer need to limit fat to 30 percent of calories.

Healthy Protein

  • You can get enough protein from plant sources like nuts, beans, seeds, and lentils.
  • If you are a meat-eater, try to have fish once or twice a week for heart-healthy fats.
  • Go easy on red meat (beef, pork, lamb, other mammal meat) and processed meats (hot dogs, bacon, salami, ham), as they are linked to heart disease and cancer.
  • Good to know: Many Americans eat more protein than they need.

Whole Grains

  • Eat whole grains whenever you can (brown rice, whole wheat, oats).
  • Whole grains have more complex carbs, , minerals, fiber, and vitamins than refined grains.
  • Cut back on sugar and refined grains and flours. These simple carbs are linked to heart disease, weight gain, and diabetes.
  • Good to know: More than 90 percent of Americans do not eat enough whole grains.
