Family Nutrition Made Easy With Terra Wellington

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Mar 6, 2013) - Wellness and Lifestyle Contributor Terra Wellington has ideas for helping busy families keep their nutrition on track. 

First, when you eat out, look for eateries that list calories and nutritional data. This is a little-known provision in the Affordable Healthcare Act that can change your eating-out choices. For example, Panera Bread was the first national restaurant to put calories on its menu boards. You can look for their new hidden menu with a lineup of "power foods" -- lean proteins, complex carbohydrates and veggies. The menu and nutritional info are found online at

Second, have sit-down meals at least four days a week. Research says it can reduce your weight because you have to think about what you'll eat. For busy families who love seafood, the Sea Cuisine Fire Roasted line is a 20-minute oven baked option for those who love seafood and have been inspired by seafood eaten when traveling or in restaurants. There's Salmon, Tilapia, and Cod -- which are high in protein but low in saturated fat. You prepare your sides while it's baking. And for those observing Lent, it's the perfect time to try it!

One new supplement that is gaining traction is 5-HTP. It's a drug-free and plant-derived source of an amino acid that naturally increases the body's level of serotonin. Serotonin affects your mood, thought, sleep and can help to decrease your hunger. One example is Natrol's 5-HTP in multiple formats. It's a Fast Dissolve formula for those on the go and has a Time Release option -- which works slowly and steadily throughout the day. It's part of their family of brands with health and wellness solutions for the whole family.

This release is provided by for whom Terra Wellington is a spokesperson on behalf of the organizations referred.
