Colorful Choices: An easy way to eat smarter
It may be the simplest nutrition program ever – no calorie or fat gram counting, no weighing and no measuring. In Colorful Choices, a point-based program, your goal is to eat at least 3½ cups of produce each day – in red, orange, yellow/white, green and blue/violet. Each time you do so, you’ll earn points.
A diet rich with fruits and vegetables is exceptionally healthy and can increase energy while also reducing your risk of obesity, heart disease, some cancers, diabetes and hypertension.
Earn points by tracking your progress online for six weeks, July 12 – August 22. Track online using a computer or mobile device like a smart phone or tablet (once registered, you will receive information on how to download the App).
Colorful Choices is open to benefits-eligible faculty and staff. It also qualifies for MHealthy Rewards – simply earn at least 200 points by August 22.
