The new web-based Meal Generator application lets you customize meals on the Menu Planner by selecting alternative ingredients. For example, the Meal Generator will display healthy recipes based on the options selected, calculate calories and nutritional data based on your choices and alert you when your selections may not adhere to USDA nutrition guidelines.
In addition to variable meal options, the nutrition information helps you make informed decisions about your daily dietary consumption. Simply click on any menu where you see “Customize Dinner” to begin creating your next healthy meal.
Fit to Survive also offers expert advice and practical information on staying fit and healthy, with a special emphasis on how to follow a healthy diet to help reduce the risk of heart disease and other chronic diseases.
