UK consumers offered summer healthy eating advice
There are a number of simple steps that people can take if they want to improve their diet this summer, an expert has noted.
A range of healthy eating guidance has been offered to consumers by Amanda Ursell in an article for the Sun.
The expert suggests that people might be able to make healthier choices by swapping traditional picnic and barbecue food items for less fatty options.
Among her advice, Ms Ursell noted that people could swap an “egg mayonnaise sandwich with 350 calories and 22g fat for [an] egg salad sandwich using reduced fat salad cream with 250 [calories] and 8g fat.”
Meanwhile, she suggested that tortilla chips could be replaced with lower fat humus.
The importance of eating well has been highlighted by the British Heart Foundation, with the organisation noting that a healthy diet can help people to address the threats posed by heart-related conditions.
