For the week (July 27 – August 7, 2006): Eat at least 5 colors of fruits & vegetables today. The more diverse the colors are, the more vitamins, minerals, & antioxidants you’ll get. Ex: red apple, blueberries, green lettuce, orange carrots and yellow corn.
Thurs, July 27: Avoid all trans fats today. These are the nasty little fats that raise your cholesterol. Look for the word ‘partially hydrogenated’ & steer clear. Many trans fats are found in packaged crackers, cookies & cereals.
I did good on my 5 colors: red grapes, blueberries, orange peach, green salad, purple cabbage (on my salad). Trans fats – well, I did good until snack shop time, then I got a package of oreo type cookies with partially hydrogenated oil. Darn those sugar cravings!
