To ensure a happy smile, add a slice or two of hard cheeese into your diet. Choose Swiss, cheddar, or gouda to block bacteria in the mouth and prevent cavities.

Citrus Fruits

Cranberries

You should choose foods that you enjoy, of course, but you need to include the following:

Vegetables
Three to five servings daily. Try to include one serving of raw, leafy greens.

Meat
Have no more than three three ounce servings a day. Cut off all fat. Try to make two servings of turkey or chicken. One serving of fish a day is ideal.

Fruits
Two to three servings daily. A 1/2 cup of chopped or sliced fruit is a serving.

Dairy
At least two servings daily. A serving would be eight ounces of milk or yogurt.

Fats
Salad dressing, cooking oil, butter, and mayonnaise should be limited to two servings a day.



Haha, I printed this out and put it on my fridge. Such a dork.

Helps if you like raw leafy greens:P I will only eat lettuce if it's hiden in something else. The same goes for spinach, and cabbage must be in coleslaw.

I adore fruit though, and most other veggies. It's a useful list :)

That reminds me, I was going to make jelly with hidden grapes, and I forgot. Oh well... (OK so they're not all that hidden!)

At least you will eat them. I know of some women that won't eat any green vegetables whatsoever.
