Tip 12: Bag the Bread

We’re not playing nutrition police on the bread group. Carbohydrates are an essential energy-boosting part of a healthy diet. Let’s just say most of us do not struggle to get enough of our daily bread. Try replacing one bread serving a day with a fruit or vegetable, and you’ll be a step ahead.

•   Love the lettuce wrap. Instead of bread or tortillas, make your next sandwich or wrap inside a leafy green. Stack 2 or 3 large, leafy greens such as Bibb lettuce, romaine, red lettuce, cabbage, or radicchio and pile on the fixings. Enjoy the added crunch factor.
