A Most Sensible Dietary Guide

I am so in love with Brazil’s proposed food guide!

The authors of Brazil’s proposed dietary guidelines boiled down the 87-page document into 10 basic steps:

natural vegetables and spices

 

 

1. Prepare meals using fresh and staple foods.

2. Use oils, fats, sugar and salt in moderation.

3. Limit consumption of ready-to-eat food and drink products.

4. Eat at regular mealtimes and pay attention to your food instead of multitasking. Find a comfortable place to eat. Avoid all-you-can-eat buffets and noisy, stressful environments.

5. Eat with others whenever possible.

6. Buy food in shops and markets that offer a variety of fresh foods. Avoid those that sell mainly ready-to-eat products.

7. Develop, practise, share and enjoy your skills in food preparation and cooking.

8. Decide as a family to share cooking responsibilities and dedicate enough time for healthy meals.

9. When you eat out, choose restaurants that serve freshly made dishes. Avoid fast-food chains.

10. Be critical of food-industry advertising.

BRILLIANT.
