    Planning — weekly meal plan, items needed at the grocery store, leftovers for lunches. Taking the “what-if” out of eating makes it easier to keep calories under control!

    Having a fully stocked kitchen with healthy foods. If the fridge is empty, I tend to want to make quick runs for junk food. But, if there are healthy options (pre-prepping also helps), then I am less likely to reach for the sugar-laden alternatives.

    I think the best way to eat well is to know exactly what you’re working with. Know your time constraints (and plan ahead so that you’re not left hungry and scrambling), know what ingredients you’re working with and know what you’re putting into every dish! I love cooking my own meals because I know I can get exactly what I want, as simply as possible.

    My best tip for eating well is to plan ahead. I often find that if I plan a menu for the entire week, I best utilize all the food in my fridge (less waste) and can make sure I am hitting all the best food groups. I think being honest in planning is also great– i.e. know that you may not want to make three huge dinners that are hours long; mix it up. I love the ginger carrot soup!

    We belong to a CSA group so have a weekly delivery of fresh and sometimes frozen locally grown produce year round. We enjoy the variety and trying new things. Also trying to use whole grains more (quinoa, barley and farro) and whole grain breads. The combination of your sauces sounds intriguing! Thanks WS for your new line! Good Luck!

    I subscribe to a local CSA. It’s fun and challenging to use all the fresh, local ingredients in the box during the week in my meal planning and preparation. And I must use them all before the next week’s box arrives, so the number of my fruit/veg servings stays high all week. I also learn about items I’m not as familiar with and so the variety of food I eat is broadened. I highly recommend it. Just make a pact not to waste ANY of it.

    The easiest way to eat well is to plan ahead! Make a weekly meal plan for breakfasts, lunches, dinners & snacks & shop only from your list. Always have healthy snacks on hand (in car, purse, office) for emergencies to avoid pit stops for fast food or unhealthy convenience store options.

    I like to prepare meals early each week after making a trip to the store for fresh ingredients and organic produce, writing down a list of meals for the week so I don’t by excess food I feel I need to eat before it goes bad. I prep vegetables to dip in hummus, saute with garlic, or add to sauces and soups. I also like to make a hearty pasta or quinoa salad for lunches so I don’t grab food while I’m on the go. A little bit of preparation goes a long way!

    When shopping at the grocery store, I try to steer clear of the middle aisles. Most of the fresh, colorful, wholesome food is at the edge of the store – along or near the far walls. I also try to prepare and plan all of my meals for the week on Sunday. That way, there is less of a chance that I will indulge in something fast and easy (i.e. unhealthy) during the week.

    My favourite way to eat well is to eat in moderation. Portion sizes can be outrageous, so I eat until I am full, not until my plate is clean, and save the rest! And cooking for yourself, as opposed to dining out or purchasing already-prepared food, makes it so easy to only consume what you need.

    My tip would be to incorporate whole grains whenever possible in your diet … We indians make roti ( whole wheat tortillas) everyday by our hands sometimes multiple times a day … And we eat them with sabzi ( vegetables) which we cook fresh everyday too .. Try to avoid refined sugar by incorporating fresh fruits, stevia extract or agave nectar to sweeten up things … And the most important of all … Drink luke warm water (like from the tap) everytime in a while which helps in melting body fat, relieves joint aches and pain and clears your system … Never drink ice cold water

    I think the first step to eating well is to just quit eating some of the things that most have been eating on a regular basis..for example: no high fructose corn syrup, no sodas, no diet ANYTHING, no fast food meals, no artificial sweeteners..I know..I know..In the beginning, it will be hard! Making your own food, at home, so you will know what is in it is the most important thing to start doing, right now! Have you read some of those labels, lately?..Scary, isn’t it? I trust Williams Sonoma to list all of the ingredients & sorce of import. Everyone should be so trustworthy! I can’t wait to try some of these..they look so good!

    By best tip for eating well is be mindful every time you eat and prepare your meals. Don’t rush to eat something. Be thoughtful about what you plan to prepare. There are days where I’m feeling a bit sluggish & want to grab the first thing I see (cold cuts, chips, etc). But then I think about how much better I’d feel if I took the time to make a hearty salad. My boyfriend is a great support to me and he’ll help me cut up all the vegetables, etc. Once the effort has been made and we’re sitting down at the table, I realize how worth it it was to put it all together because it tastes so good and so refreshing – it’s like “medicine” for me, and it immediately makes me feel better.

    As a doctor, I am impressed at the evidence behind the Mediterranean diet, as substantiated by the low incidence of coronary heart disease and longer life expectancy in that population. That diet is primarily plant-based with lots of fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and whole grains, and infrequent meats and dairy. Olive oil is the primary source of fat. Weekly consumption of fish, and daily low to moderate amounts of red wine are also included.
