Hawaii’s Health Care & Services Experts Share 3 Tips for Eating Well

1. Don’t Skip Breakfast

health care and servicesA lot of people live busy lives, especially in the morning. It’s easy to skip breakfast in the rush to get ready for your day. However, by the time you wake up, you’ve been without food for a while. It’s important to have a healthy breakfast with lean protein, whole grains, fruits, and vegetables. Doing so will provide you with much-needed energy for the day.

2. Check the Nutrition Facts

It may seem obvious, but far too many people ignore the nutritional label on items of the food they purchase. For example, a quick check can reveal the juice you thought was good for you actually contains a surprising amount of sugar. Make a habit of reading the label before consuming anything you eat.

3. Substitute Seafood

Looking to cut back on meat consumption? Rather than trying to eliminate it completely from your diet — a task which isn’t easy for many — substitute fish a couple nights a week instead. It provides you with lean protein and major nutrients like omega-3 fatty acids.

Offering everything from weight loss programs to general health care and services, the team at Kona Community Hospital works hard to ensure you have insights that will guide you towards a healthier lifestyle.
