Maureen Swick, Senior Vice President and System Nurse Executive gets her days started with fruit and yogurt.
Research shows that individuals who start their day with a healthy breakfast are less likely to be obese and suffer from chronic disease. Make breakfast a priority. Tell us what you are eating for breakfast on the LiveWELL Yammer page using #EatWELL.
Ruth Krystopolski, Senior Vice President of Population Health serves up a healthy salad.
A salad can be as healthy as you make it. Salad dressing can add unknown calories to an otherwise healthy salad. Two capfuls or one tablespoon of salad dressing is a good serving size guideline. Try dipping your fork in the dressing before each bite to stretch your salad dressing even further. Share your salad ideas on the LiveWELL Yammer page using #EatWELL.
Ken Haynes, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer starts his days with a hearty breakfast.
Breakfast is one of the most important – and often rushed meals of the day. Consider preparing your breakfast the night before; make small changes from white to whole-wheat toast to rethink your breakfast. Small changes can make a big difference! Share your healthy food substitutes on the LiveWELL Yammer page using #EatWELL.
Consider ordering the LiveWELL Cookbook for more healthy eating ideas.
Dr. Matt Hanley, Senior VP and Chief Medical Officer uses food for fuel by eating healthy, energizing snacks.
Life can keep you busy. Eating on the run often leaves few, convenient healthy eating options. Keep healthy snacks with you for better nutrition. Avoid empty calories, such as chips, candy and soda that can leave you sluggish and cause spikes in blood sugar levels. Mindful snacking helps ensure you are recharging with the right type of foods. Share your healthy snack choices on the LiveWELL Yammer page using #EatWELL.
