Your Health

Matters

 By Jessana Akehurst

How I could improve my diet:

-I could start adding more of each food group to my diet and increase each portion. 

-I can add more fuits, veggies and protein to my everyday diet.

-I can also make sure to get enough of each food from the Canada Food Guide and follow the guidelines provided. 

-Also I could add more snacks to my day with good, healthy foods if I want to keep my meals smaller.

-It's difficult to eat healthily on a busy schedule like I have with theatre, but one way to help that is to preplan your meals and prepare them the night before if possible.

My Diet generally consists of three meals and one snack in between. 

Breakfast: usually of a decent size.

Some general breakfasts I eat:

-hot cereal and toast

-smoothies

-blueberry pancakes

Lunch: I usually don't eat very much since I'm at school, but I most likely eat small portions. 

Usual lunches: 

-sandwich and carrots

-crackers and cheese

-an apple and some veggies

Dinner: I usually have a larger dinner with better portions as my family makes it. 

Usual dinners: 

-pasta of some sort

-meat and rice
