This week’s Nutrition Quick Tip, is part 2 of the 2-part series on minding your P’s & Q’s in the off-season. Although the 17th century English pub version “mind your pint’s & quarts” might apply to the off-season, our Nutrition Quick Tip series with continue with the SportWise Nutrition & Consulting version ­– Mind your Portions & Quality. Last week we addressed the Portions side of guideline; here we finish the series with discussing making Quality choices:

Quality:

  • Make those calories count – get the biggest bang for your buck by consuming colorful fruits & vegetables.
  • Eat your vegetables – try something new each week – golden beets anyone?
  • Lighten up – reduce total calories by substituting lower calorie ingredients for higher calorie ones.
  • Think ‘outside of the bag’ – instead of packaged snacks try fruits, vegetables, and low-fat dairy foods.

 

The following recipe is a loaded with quality nutrients provided by colorful fruits & vegetables and a healthy, lean protein – shrimp.
