-At least 2 cups of fruits and 2 1/2 cups of vegetables each day for vitamins, minerals, fiber and phytochemicals.
-Whole grains. Eat at least half of all grains as whole grains each day. Replace refined grains with whole-grain bread, cereal, pasta, brown rice or oats.

-At least two to three servings of fish per week.
