Make Following Canada's New Food Guide Easy!
The big news out of Canada in 2019 has been the release of Canada’s new Food Guide!
It’s been twelve years since the Food Guide was last updated, making the re-release of Canada’s official guide to healthy eating a much-needed one for families and individuals across the country. Gone are the recommendations of following specific portions based on age and sex, with a strong focus on fruits, vegetables and grains and less of a focus on dairy and meat alternatives.
The 2019 guide is all about proportional eating, calling on people to eat fruits and veggies while enjoying whole grain foods and proteins. Paired with recommendations on eating whole foods, Canada’s Food Guide features two additional guidelines that include a list of foods to avoid (sugary and highly processed foods) and the importance of making meals at home.
It’s less about what to eat, and more about how to eat to have a healthy body!
When we read this, we were thrilled as we have been encouraging people to make whole foods a staple of their diet for years, and make whole foods the star of our products.
Life is busy though.

Between trying to juggle work and family time, it can be so easy to order in food or whip together a quick meal designed to fill an empty stomach instead of fuel the body. With less emphasis on portion sizes, and more emphasis on making sure that half of your plate is filled with fruits and veggies, and the other half is devoted to grains and proteins, how can you ensure that your family is getting enough fruits and veggies, even on the busiest of days?
Even with helpful recipes, are you worried you and your family won’t get enough whole foods into your diet, every day? Juice Plus+ capsules and chewables are designed to fill in the gaps of your diet when life doesn’t allow you to make a home-cooked meal or you’re unable to fill half your plate with fruits and vegetables.
We all know that plant-based foods contribute to a healthy heart, a stronger immune system, and improve the skin (which we all need during Canadian winters), but “knowing” and “doing” are two different things. On the days when you need a little extra nutrition, Juice Plus+ can help you get the nutrients you need!
When your body has the fuel it requires, you have the energy for whatever life throws at you.
Remember, instead of letting you or your family go without the nutrients they need on the days when life gets hectic, choose the best of what Mother Nature has to offer.
Juice Plus+ can help!
