If you crave dessert, fresh fruit is best, although canned fruit in juice is also a good choice. Frozen fruit juice bars are another good way to sneak fruit into your eating plan. (Don’t forget to count your carbohydrates!) Relax in the evening by sipping a cup of hot tea (go for decaf if caffeine keeps you awake).
Functional foods can do double duty — they provide you with the fuel you need for daily living and can help protect your heart, bones, digestive tract, and other parts of your body from disease, too. Most of them are foods that you already know are good for you and that are easy to find at your local grocery store. Add some functional foods to your meal plan today!
