5 Cheat Day Tips from Our Nutritionist

How nutritionist Erin Palinski-Wade does a cheat day!

1. Craving chocolate?

Choose dark chocolate over milk chocolate for a boost of flavonoids. Flavonoids are antioxidants with heart health benefits.

2. Need a pizza fix?

Opt for a whole grain crust & load up on the veggie toppings.

3. Is that burger calling your name?

Select grass-fed beef which tends to be lower in overall fat content.

4. Have a sweet tooth?

Try a lollipop over chewy candies. It takes longer to eat, helping with portion control.

5. Salty and crunchy?

Choose air popped popcorn which contain less than 100 calories in 3 cups & provides a good source of fiber and antioxidants.

Enjoying a less nutritious food once in a while can be part of a healthy diet. As long as you enjoy it in moderation.
