It’s easier than you think to start eating healthy! Eating healthy means choosing a balanced healthy diet, avoiding high fat and sugary foods, and eating in moderation. Fortunately we can look toward our traditional ways of eating. To make it really simple – our ancestors ate a variety of whole foods that were close to the earth.

Here’s what you can do:

  • Host a dinner with community members serving healthy, traditional foods and discussing why they are so important. 
  • Create a cook book full of healthy recipes from your community or tribe. 
  • Organize an event focusing on the Half-Your-Plate concept 
  • Watch and discuss fruit and veggie videos, or create and share your own traditional foods videos:
