The most commonly consumed lunch in America is a sandwich, often accompanied by chips. Here are a few simple swaps to make your lunch more healthy and satisfying. Use whole grain bread (or a whole grain pita) for your sandwich, fill half your plate with fruits and vegetables, add some yogurt, and add a wedge of Sunkist Lemon to your water. Did you know that doing something as simple as squeezing a wedge of Sunkist Lemon into your water provides 10 percent of your daily vitamin C needs!
Portion sizes at many restaurants are often two to three times what the average American adult needs, in terms of calories. And restaurant foods are often very high in sodium. Choosing more fresh fruits and vegetables is one way to cut back on both calories and sodium. For example, add a Sunkist lemon wedge to your ice tea to add beneficial antioxidants and nutrients to your meal which can help promote positive health and impact the way you look and feel.
