Smart choices: Tomatoes, red onions, watermelon, red grapes, radishes, cranberries, strawberries, red bell peppers

Among the most important nutritional information that I have seen and this includes South Beach Diet. In addition, the recipes are easy, but do require using fresh veg and fruit. This is not a impediment There is plenty of variety and can substitute for two or even three meals a day. Don't forget to add some roasted walnuts or pecans.

I injoy knowing they "why" to eat the colorful fruits and veggies. I am a member of the "Lose It" website and this is the second year we have had a challenge called "Eat the Rainbow" which advocates eating a fruit or veggie from five different color groups each day. I have posted the link to this article in the challenge conversation line. I hope it does not give you an overload of site visitors. Sorry if it does, but this is important in my opinion.
