Eating healthy in 2018? A local nutrition expert’s recommendations.

Eat cooked foods and use bone broth in the winter. Instead of cold foods and drinks such as salads and ice water, make soup, toast your sandwiches, brew tea and roast your veggies. Your digestive fire won’t have to work so hard to warm up your food and you’ll feel warmer and more energized in the cooler months. For the best health benefits, use bone broth for its easy-to-digest protein and extra calcium.

1. Build a better breakfast.

All meals are important, but breakfast is what helps you start your day on the right track. The best, heartiest breakfasts are ones that will fill you up, keep you satisfied and stave off cravings later in the day. Aim to eat anywhere between 400 and 500 calories for your morning meal, and make sure you're including a source of lean protein plus filling fat (e.g. eggs, beans, unsweetened greek yogurt, nuts or nut butters) and fiber (veggies, fruit or 100% whole-grains). Starting your day with a blood-sugar-stabilizing blend of nutrients will help you slim down without sacrifice.
