Choosing Healthy Meals

Breakfast

Try pancakes, waffles, french toast, bagels, cereal, English muffins, fruit or juice. These foods are all high in carbohydrates.

Avoid high-fat choices such as bacon, sausage or biscuits and gravy.

For breakfast on the run, pack containers of dry cereal, crackers, juice or dried fruit such as raisins and apricots; or pack fresh fruits such as apples or oranges.

If you eat breakfast at a fast food restaurant choose foods like cereal, fruit juice and muffins or pancakes. Avoid breakfast sandwiches, sausage and bacon.



Lunch and Dinner

Select colorful foods whenever possible.

Select pastas, breads and salads.

Select thick crust rather than thin crust pizza for more carbohydrates.

Choose vegetables such as mushrooms and green peppers on the pizza. Avoid high fat toppings such as pepperoni and sausage.

Select vegetable soups accompanied by crackers, bread, or muffins.

Emphasize the bread in sandwiches, not the condiments, mayonnaise or potato chips.

Avoid deep fat fried foods such as french fries, fried fish and fried chicken.

Choose low-fat milk or fruit juices rather than soda pop.

Trivia Question

Any registered MD Swimming swimmer is welcome to play!!!


New Question: 
An instructor said, “You are going to love this. Drown-proofing is one of my favorites. Sink or swim, sweet peas.”

I tied my feet together, and my swim partner tied my hands behind my back.

“When I give the command, the bound men will hop into the deep end of the pool,” Instructor Stoneclam said. “You must bob up and down 20 times, float for five minutes, swim to the shallow end of the pool, turn around without touching the bottom, swim back to the deep end, do a forward and backward somersault underwater, and retrieve a face mask from the bottom of the pool with your teeth.”

The hardest part for me was swimming the length of the pool and back with my feet tied together and hands tied behind my back. I had to flip around like a dolphin."
