Make a Healthy Lunch Choice

Do you brown-bag your lunch from home, or prefer to go out? Whether you’re partial to sandwiches or salads, you probably have a few favorites for your noon-time meal. Trying a simple swap can reduce the amount of saturated fat you consume, boost your vitamin and mineral intake, and help you get healthier. Consider one of these to try today:

Instead of cream-based soup like cream of mushroom, opt for a broth-based soup like vegetable or chicken noodle, which are lower in fat and calories.

Trade in that fatty hamburger for a grilled or roasted chicken sandwich. Load it up with fresh veggies like cucumbers, lettuce, and tomatoes for extra nutrients.

Love a sandwich? Swap out that roast beef on white bread for a lighter version of turkey or chicken breast on whole-grain bread instead.

Exercise Your Brain Muscles Today

Hobbies may be for fun, but they have a serious side, too. There’s growing evidence that what you do in your spare time can boost your health and well-being.

Doing something you enjoy can be a great stress reliever, and certain activities also give your brain a boost. That’s important because your brain, just like your body, needs exercise. Research has shown that keeping your brain active can keep it sharper. It may even help you build up your brain cells and connections, or generate new brain cells. This could help fight off mental decline, which appears to stem from altered connections among brain cells as we age.

So why not spend some time today curled up with a crossword, Sudoku, or other puzzle? If you don’t subscribe to a newspaper, you can find puzzles online or through smartphone apps.
