#TipTuesday : Try red leaf lettuce At a measly 7 calories per cup, red leaf lettuce is the best nutrition bargain out there

Red leaf contains the most vitamin A and other antioxidants of any other lettuce. It is high in lutein, zeaxanthin, beta-carotene, iron, calcium and potassium. So next time you eat salad—go for the red leaf! #health #wellness #nutrition

#TipTuesday Cut the salt Our food supply is tainted

Salt is a major contributor to high blood pressure—the silent killer. 9/10 Americans eat too much salt for good health—you should know that 80 percent of the sodium in our food comes from processed and restaurant foods. Rx: aim for eating less processed food and more fresh and whole foods. (Most Americans should be eating no more than 1500 mg of sodium per day for heart health—the amount in about ¾ of a teaspoon of salt.)#Health #Nutrition #FitnessTogether

#TipTuesday Try roasted red beets Red beets are incredibly nutritious and low in #calories (just 35 for a half cup serving)

Packed with fiber, folate, manganese, calcium and other nutrients, beets also contain a powerful #antioxidant pigment called betalain (that give red beets their color). Try roasting them in a hot oven with a touch of extra virgin olive oil for flavoring. #Health #Nutrition #FitnessTogether
