Anne’s 10 Nutrition Commandments

God didn’t give these to me on a stone tablet, but they are some things I’ve picked up over the past few years that seem to work. 

1)  Eat breakfast:  it will boost your performance for the rest of the day

2)  Quality over quantity:  small amounts of good food satisfies more than large amounts of junk foods

3)  Frequency is key:  5-6 small meals per day rather than 1-2 large meals will help maintain lower blood sugar levels, a leaner body, and higher energy levels

4)  Fill up on fiber:  25-35 grams a day to control appetite today and prevent chronic diseases later

5)  Fresh is best:  snack on fruits and veggies rather than processed foods

6)  Go natural:  the fewer ingredients and closer to the way God made it, the better it is for you! 

7)  Read the label:  you are what you eat, so know what you’re eating

8)  Method matters:  steaming, grilling, and broiling rather than frying add flavor without the fat

9)  It starts in the cart:  stock your grocery cart with good-for-you foods you will eat,  steer it clear of temptation, and it will be much easier to eat right at home

10)  Plan to succeed:  planning meals  ensures you will have the necessary ingredients at home and prevents last-minute dashes to the vending machine, fast food drive-through, or grocery store
