3 Easy Ways to Stay Healthy

1. A rainbow a day: Fruits and vegetables are low in calories but high in fiber and nutrients. Aim to add at least one fruit or veggie to each meal, like avocado in your sandwich, red peppers on your pasta or blueberries in your oatmeal. Choose fruit and vegetables from all the colors of the rainbow to maximize your nutrient profile. Learn more nutrition tips.

2. Everybody get footloose: The weather outside may be frightful, but don’t let that stop you from exercising. Find indoor activities that get your heart pumping, like power walking at the mall, swimming at an indoor pool or kicking up your heels at a dance class. Learn more ways to stay fit.

3. Breathe easy: Kicking a smoking habit is one of the best things you can do for your heart health. Steer clear of temptation by visiting places where smoking isn’t allowed, like your local library, a museum exhibit or a fun boutique. Learn more about heart health.
