Care's Corner March: Dietary Details

Care's dietary recommendations from this March's Care's Corner (see video on the right column of this blog):

"Eating three balanced meals daily with a snack should help to shed the pounds and give you energy. Breakfast should consist of an egg white omelet with veggies, one fruit serving, and a cup of black coffee or unsweetened green tea. Mid morning, you could nosh on a ¼ cup of nuts and seeds. At Lunch you can enjoy a salad with grilled chicken, avocado, walnuts, and feta or goat cheese. Mid afternoon, a protein shake (2 cups egg white or whey protein powder, a handful of berries, half a banana, and a cup of a milk alternative of your choice; you could even throw in a packet of sunflower seed butter for extra protein and good essential fatty acids- come by the office for a free sample if you have not tried this). Then for Dinner, you could have a small piece of fish, turkey or chicken breast with ½ cup quinoa or brown rice, and steamed broccoli. Sipping on filtered mineral water or sparkling water with lemon throughout the day will help to detoxify and keep you hydrated."
