Amica shares advice for making healthier nutritional choices
Jean Tapley, wellness program manager at Amica, said in a recent release that for handy healthy choices, store whole fruits in bowls near the refrigerator. Fruits don’t need to be cooled, and you’re more likely to choose them as a healthy snack if they’re more visible.
Other tips includes slicing up melons as soon as you get home to reduce waste; don’t keep junk food such as soda and chips in the house; and keep a menu so you can plan meals prior to going to the grocery store and prevent you from eating unhealthy takeout food.
You can also keep dumbbells near the couch to give yourself something to do other than snacking while you watch TV, and in moments of stress, listen to your favorite relaxing music vices snacking, the release said.
Also, keep healthy snack bars or nuts in your car instead of candy or chips; stay hydrated and keep a bottle of water on your desk; and keep healthy snacks with you at work.
