These healthy foods are full of nutrients that may reduce the risk of heart disease, certain types of cancer, obesity and Type 2 diabetes, as well as help relieve constipation, manage weight and give you energy to feel great each day!

+1 Fruit

Boost breakfast with berries, grab an orange for a snack between classes, toss a peeled banana in the freezer for a late night treat. Try something new – go beyond apples and bananas with a kiwi, mango, or papaya.

Add peppers to your omelet, add spinach to your sandwich, mix extra broccoli in your pasta or soup, pack carrots, celery and/or cherry tomatoes in a cup to go. Dip it for flavor! Grab your favorite veggies and dip with hummus, baba ganoush, yogurt, salsa, or nut butter.

+1 Whole Grain

Enjoy oatmeal at breakfast, make your sandwich with 100% Arnold's Whole Wheat bread, add brown rice or quinoa to dinner, and have air popped popcorn for a late night snack.

Because adding good food options = a healthier you!
