Healthy Living Tip #481

Eat out less; cook at home more.

WHY: By preparing your own meals, you’ll eat for satiety (feeling gratified after eating; not gross) and be less likely to overeat due to heaping portions. Home cooking will also keep you from consuming excess salt or flavoring condiments, as you would at a restaurant.

HOW: Practice the simple art of meal planning. Craft a well-balanced menu for the week ahead on Sunday then hit the grocery store.
