Eating healthy can seem like an impossible task nowadays. However, it may be easier than you think. Listed below are some tips to keep your health on track and your wallet happy.
What is “healthy eating”?
Healthy eating can look different for everyone based on dietary needs and health conditions. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services defines “eating healthy” as a “healthy eating pattern that includes a variety of nutritious foods and drinks. It also means getting the number of calories that’s right for you (not eating too much or too little).” It is especially important for patients with kidney diseases or on dialysis to consult with their healthcare providers and dieticians when considering changes in diet.
For more information on healthy eating, we have provided some resources below. Please contact your healthcare provider(s) before changing your diet or health habits should you have any conditions that require dietary restrictions.
