WBIR featured Lee Murphy, assistant professor of nutrition in the College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences, during its Live at Five at Four segment. Murphy provided tips for staying healthy during the holidays.
Some of Murphy’s tips are:
- Stay hydrated!
- Keep fruits and vegetables on your radar. Try to have at least five a day.
- Incorporate dietary fiber into your diet. Fiber keeps you full and your system regular.
- Ensure you are eating a high amount of lean protein.
Murphy also displayed a healthy and easy breakfast option, containing egg whites, spinach and tomatoes. Put all of the ingredients in muffin tins, top with pepper, and bake in the oven for about 20 minutes, until the egg hardens.
